It’s a sign of the times that we all need to take extra care – and that means different things for different astrological signs. The Care Team has a love of skincare AND sharing our horoscopes – so here are your personalized beauty rituals with tips, style recommendations, and a dash of individual star power. Read on!
JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18
You’re unique; and your skincare rituals should be too. We’ve heard terrific reviews re: the Jillian Dempsey 24k gold bar massager – similar to an Aquarius, it’s one of a kind. This skincare tool pairs perfectly with an AM /PM Care routine like The Daily Care Set; hydrating and restorative on all levels. Slip into a pair of super soft Cosabella Bella pajamas at night – another five-star experience to enjoy along with a healthy snack like Eden’s Wild Berry Mix or just a square or two of dark chocolate.
FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20
For these romantic souls that are happy to swim along, a detoxing Epsom salt bath is highly recommended (try these mineral-rich Big Dipper Bath ones). Pisces always tend to put others first; here’s a chance to do something that’s in your element. Soak for at least 15 minutes or enjoy it for longer with a great classic novel like The Great Gatsby or Pride and Prejudice. Hydrate both your body with a rich shea butter and your complexion with The Daily Radiance Set. Winter skin can feel as dry as a fish out of water!
MARCH 21 – APRIL 19
You’re bursting with energy and courage, but even bold Aries needs a break between adventures. Anti-inflammatory foods like blueberries and organic green tea are especially beneficial. Calm your fire with a soothing playlist while you tone, hydrate and nourish your skin (fragrance free is best if you want to avoid irritation and break outs). Fiery Aries also benefits from this skincare trick: keep your moisturizers in a luxe little fridge for an extra cool, calming treatment.
APRIL 20 – MAY 20
Loyal to all things, a Taurus doesn’t need reminders to finish their skincare routine. Since you’re so good at putting in the work, why not add a Gua Sha facial tool to your lineup? This pretty heart-shaped one from Kora Organics is lovely; plus we’ve heard massage can help relieve puffiness, tension and add lift. Use after applying serum or moisturizer; we think pink rose quartz pairs perfectly with soothing Deep Moisture Fix Hydrating Water Cream. A little extra pampering never hurts, too – throw on some moisturizing gloves from Meraki before your evening relaxation (you deserve it).
MAY 21 – JUNE 20
For this #twinning sign, it’s important to realize there are sometimes two sides that need care: one for the public and another for private life. When it’s time to face the day, sweep Soft Sweep Micellar Cleanser + Toner over face to remove nighttime products and impurities for a fresh-faced AM glow. We like The Start-Up-Kit by Jones Road Beauty – a little glam adds double confidence. When you’re ready to retire for the evening, your inner homebody can relax with a podcast that satisfies your intellect like “Hidden Brain” or “Travel That Matters” with a full skincare routine and luxurious bubble bath. Take your time!
JUNE 21 – JULY 22
Sometimes, it’s ok to retreat into your shell (or bathroom sanctuary). Recharge with a five-minute face mask using Deep Moisture Fix – easy, luxurious, ultra-hydrating. Make yourself a drink like water infused with basil, cucumber and lemon while you peruse some magazines. If you really need a change, give your bathroom a mini-makeover – domesticity is so important to Cancers for a stable mood. Add a few lush succulents, a blue or a silver bud vase (both are your lucky colors by the way) – you could even upgrade your shower curtain for an easy style fix. Here’s a little design inspo from Elle Décor.
JULY 23 – AUGUST 22
What’s dramatic enough to change a Leo’s skincare routine? That would be supercharged retinol (or Vitamin A). Like you, this skincare ingredient puts on a great show, visibly transforming skin (some say overnight). Non-irritating Tireless Retinoid Night Serum is a must-have for your evening routine and the benefits only multiply over time (but don’t forget an SPF of 30+ during the day, especially if you’re a sun-worshiping lion). A gorgeous, attention-catching robe in a bold print like this organic cotton masterpiece from Desmond & Dempsey also adds flair to your “me” time.
AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22
The best skincare ritual for Virgo matches their orderly, practical side. So why not go with a skinimalist routine that maximizes results? The Daily Care Set satisfies orderly Virgo’s need for an efficient, transformative skincare system without any fuss. (Did we also mention this collection looks gorgeously matched in your bathroom space?) There’s a lovely skincare organizer from West Elm that totally appeals to any Virgo’s sensibilities. This star robe by UGG will ALSO stylishly sync with your Care products – how heavenly.
SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22
Libra – why not make Sunday your big skincare fun day? Throw on a long soft grey cashmere from Cuyana, politely tell Alexa to play some modern jazz, Taylor Swift or whatever your heart desires, and indulge: a cup of detoxing herbal tea, a healing bath, and quality time spent on every single skincare step. Try a little mani project (here’s some recent inspiration from Byrdie) while you’re catching up on Netflix: we suspect you’re loving Emily in Paris and can’t wait for Bridgerton Season 2.
OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21
Have you heard of RSF – Resting Scorpio Face? Treat one of your best assets well – the intensity, passion and expression you convey are priceless. Extra nourishment on delicate areas – like around the eyes and around the lips – is key, and dermatologist-recommended Eye + Lip Cream covers all the bases with collagen-boosting Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid. After showering, dry your hair in half the time with this dramatic and pretty Alice + Olivia head wrap Scorpios love attention-catching, fashionable art; try this bold Vogue print in your self-care space.
NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21
A typical Sagittarius is born to be free; this is a lucky, cheerful sign. Keep your routine super simple when travels take you on the road; essentials are lightweight Soft Sweep BiodegradableTowelettes to refresh and clear pores, as well as Deep Moisture Fix (a hydrating gel-cream and jetsetter must-have). Step up your skincare when you’re able, but stick to these basics to keep your face happy. Travel well with this monogrammed cosmetics case from bag-all – it will help keep everything in check.
DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19
A good sense of humor keeps ambitious Capricorn in alignment. It’s extra important to practice self-care for this sign that keeps reaching for the stars. Make sure you throw on blue light glasses to minimize eye strain before a big laptop session – they also help protect the skin around your eyes (and give you a studious look!) Here’s a reminder to drink plenty of water and tea after your AM coffee(s). At night, we recommend classical music, a steamy shower and Tireless Retinoid Night Serum. It’s an overachiever – just like you.
