Skincare routines are something which allow us to indulge in the ritual of good skin practices everyday and also give us the opportunity to observe our skin, noting any changes or signs of ageing. Dr Lizzie is an advocate of exfoliation, not only to keep skin clean but to help clear pores, which in turn can keep pore size down. She recommends in particular to remember to exfoliate after exercise, plus use a daily cleanser and oil. Something Dr Lizzie gets asked about frequently is the use of retinol to reduce fine lines and help prevent ageing. It has become an almost cult beauty product although many don’t know the best way to use it. Dr Lizzie believes night time is the optimal time to use a small dose of retinol, so it can absorb into the skin without making you vulnerable to sun exposure.
