Cleanse the RATIONALE Way
The RATIONALE way is to cleanse only at night. The reason? Our nighttime actives are still working in the morning and when day time actives are layered on to the skin, a synergistic effect is created.
Our Founder and Director of Research and Development, Richard Parker, explains more in the video below.
When it comes to the double cleanse our Online Skin Consultant, Ellana, is a bigger supporter. "First I'll use RATIONALE Catalyst Cleanser to boost skin refinement and follow it with ProCeramide Cleanser to ensure my skin is nourished and supple and ready for my nighttime actives. I usually wear a couple of layers of SPF so I want to ensure my skin is thoroughly cleansed of sunscreen, makeup and daily debris."
To explain our cleansers further:
Catalyst Cleanser is a gel consistency, designed to deepen the dose of organic Hydroxy Acids, nourishing Peptides, Ceramides and Australian SolarRepair Botanicals for a deep cleanse, without stripping the skin. Resulting in refined texture and reduced congestion for brighter, smoother skin.
ProCeramide Cleanser is a cream consistency, designed to boost Ceramides to instantly soothe, calm and hydrate for all skin types.
Many of our clients like to have both cleansers. Using ProCeramide Cleanser as their staple cleanser, and incorporating Catalyst Cleanser as a treatment on days they're needing a deeper cleanse, or just feeling a little lacklustre.
Here are Ellana’s top three cleansing tips:
- Start with a ProCeramide Pre-Cleanse Oil then your daily RATIONALE cleanser to cut through any stubborn makeup or sunscreen, this will ensure optimal penetration of night time actives.
- Don't forget the eye area (you can use ProCeramide Pre-Cleanse Oil for waterproof makeup, or ProCeramide Cleanser alone for lighter makeup). Tip: Soak a cotton pad with ProCeramide Pre-Cleanse Oil to remove stubborn eye makeup.
- Did you know you can use your RATIONALE Cleansers as masks for a weekly at-home treatment?
a. Apply RATIONALE ProCeramide Cleanser and leave for 20 minutes. This will give you an extra boost of nourishment, leaving skin soft and supple
b. Apply RATIONALE Catalyst Cleanser and leave for 5 minutes. This will give you a deep cleanse and a mini refinement treatment.
