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 affect is created.
When it comes to the double cleanse, RATIONALE'S Online Skin Consultant, Ellana, is a huge fan. "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."
Here are Ellana's top three cleansing tips:
1. Start with a ProCeramide PreCleanse Oil then your daily RATIONALE cleanser to cut through any stubborn makeup or sunscreen. This will ensure optimal penetration of night time actives.
2. Don't forget the eye area (you can use ProCeramide PreCleanse Oil for waterproof makeup, or ProCeramide Cleanser alone for lighter makeup). Tip: Soak a cotton pad with ProCeramide PreCleanse Oil to remove stubborn eye make-up.
3. Did you know that 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.
