Recently moved from Canon to Sony a7iii. My wife has pointed out that a lot of the skin tones look much more red than previously. Any suggestions on avoiding this?

I've seen there is a slider to adjust white-balance but would prefer not having to manually guess/set this for every photo.

Does the Sony have skin specific settings or picture styles that might help?
