MY RATIONALE ROUTINE
After my first visit to Rationale there was no pressure to buy any products but after the skin consultation and my facial i knew i really wanted to give them a try. Rationale is known for its Six Essentials but you don’t need to start with this. Ellie subscribed me my own routine to start with. I didn’t have to buy all these products at once, you can start with one or two products but i knew i wanted to go all in for my first time on Rationale.
First things first. I have recently been questioning if i should be washing my face in the morning. Rationale answered this for me. No you don’t need to be washing your face in the morning as you do so much hard work looking after your skin the night before that you don’t need too. So now i just rinse my face with warm water and pat dry.
I apply a small, pearl-sized amount of Immunologist UltraCreme to your entire face, neck and décolletage.
Vitamin B Complex (Niacinamide and Folic Acid) will work to reduce inflammation, regulate oil flow and strengthen the skin’s immunity and barrier function.
Ceramides and Lipids will work to improve hydration in the stratum corneum, preventing water loss.
Next i apply 1-2 drops of Antioxidant Lipid Concentrate to your entire face, neck and décolletage.
Vitamin A and C control abnormal melanin production and brighten skin tone within the skin. Vitamin E assists in protecting against post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10) deactivates the harmful effects of destructive free radicals.
I always use SPF so i finish with 2-3 drops of Beautiful Skin Luminizing Superfluid SPF50 on top. I don’t wear make up when i don’t need too, this product is tinted.
Zinc Oxide, Titanium Oxide and Iron Oxide provide solar protection.
Ceramides and Lipids work to improve hydration by preventing water loss.
I Cleanse my entire face, neck and décolletage with Catalyst Cleanser. i apply 1 pump onto damp skin, massage into a mild lather before rinsing thoroughly. I then repeat this step for optimally thorough cleanse, allowing to infuse for 2-3 minutes.
Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids assist in re-acidifying the skin’s pH balance, preventing the stimulation of acne causing bacteria. Lactic Acid works to refine the skin’s texture, regulating cellular turnover and Salicylic Acid decongests pores.
Ceramides and Lipids strengthen the skin’s barrier function and prevents water loss.
Australian SolarRepair Botanical Extracts assist in reducing inflammation.
To finish off my daily regime i apply a small, pearl-sized amount of #6 DNA Night Cream over entire face, neck and décolletage.
Vitamin A works to regulate cellular turnover, assisting in refinement and decongestion.
DNA Repair Enzymes will identify, excise and correct damaged DNA, reducing pigmentation and DNA damage.
Ceramides strengthen the skin’s barrier and prevents water loss.
I use the famous Immunologist Mask evenly to clean, dry skin one a week. Leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. then apply normal nightly routine after. (This mask is seriously so good)
Vitamin B Complex (Niacinamide and Dexpanthenol) reduce inflammation, redness and sensitivity, regulates sebum production and hydration.
Amino Acids provide intense moisturization for the skin and strengthens connective tissue.
I have been using Rationale for 3 weeks now. I am already seeing a visible difference in my skin. I will back with a 3 month review to let you know how my skin is going with Rationale. Take my advice and book in a skin consultation so that you can start with the right products for your skin concerns.
