The Research

Oxidative stress occurs in skin when the amount of free radicals outnumbers the naturally occurring antioxidants found within our skin. This results in hyperpigmentation, premature ageing, dullness, rough texture, and inflammation.

Research shows that a slow release of Vitamin C elevates rejuvenating effects over prolonged periods of time. Vitamin C neutralises free radicals and prevents oxidation to brighten an uneven skin tone. In addition, Vitamin C plays an important role in regulating the supraduction of pigment. Pre-existing pigment is reduced and an even complexion is revealed.

Masking Maximalists

All RATIONALE mask formulations have been designed to complement each other. So, if you have multiple skin goals, RATIONALE’s Assistant Education Manager, Ellie Bowley, prescribes applying multiple masks at the one time—this is also known as ‘zoning’.

“We recommend applying the prescribed mask on the zone you’re treating. For example, you may apply #2 The Mask where you seek a more brightened complexion and apply #5 The Mask to the zones where you are experiencing signs of congestion”, says Ellie.

If you are unsure on which mask is right for your skin goals, take Ellie’s following prescription as a starting point:

“If you seek a more even-toned complexion and you have normal to resilient skin, #1 The Mask is your answer. If you’re experiencing signs of hyperpigmentation, dullness, or a lacklustre complexion, #2 The Mask is your prescription. If you’re wanting to achieve clear, smooth, refined skin tone, #5 The Mask is ideal for you.”
