Features Editor Jenny Proudfoot breaks down the misconceptions around the annual celebration...Getty ImagesToday marks International Women’s Day 2021, a date that feels all the more poignant after recent reports that COVID-19 has set women back decades.

I’m 53, But People Think I’m in My 30s–Here Are the Products I Swear By

My mum and I discuss everything, and that goes tenfold on the topic of skincare. She's one of the most product obsessed people I know; if it's available to buy, chances are she's tried it. It hasn't always been this way though—her intense skincare obsession started about ten years ago, growing from a novelty interest in Youtube beauty videos to full-fledged enthusiasm combing through hundreds of product reviews online.As she tells me, her carefully curated nine-step skincare routine has been years in the making, testing and recalibrating every step until finding that one formula that doesn't break her out or exaggerate her hyperpigmentation.
