A good skincare routine is essential and it’s so important to use the right products, Victoria Stiles, makeup artist and creative director of ShikSona Beauty says, “People over 50 should avoid any alcohol-based skincare products such as lotions and moisturizers as these tend to dehydrate the skin. Many moisturizers are alcohol-based so the product absorbs quicker on the skin, requiring less time to apply. As skin matures, it needs all the moisture it can get so choosing products that are water-based is key to healthy, hydrated skin.”
