Whether we want to admit it or not, our zodiac signs and astrology do influence who we are and what we do. For thousands of years, human beings have looked to the skies for inspiration, guidance, and influence on actions that we need to take in our lives.
Your sign can give you valuable insight into your life, love, and career choices, but did you know that it can also give you valuable insight into how to care for yourself and your skin? No matter what your sign, it is best to use all natural, organic products in caring for your skin.
Here are some of our favorite skin products according to your unique zodiac sign:
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This is a strong and fiery zodiac sign; Aries is all things passionate and tumultuous. With this unique combination of personality characteristics, the skin of an Aries can be prone to redness, rashes, and even breakouts. One way to combat your skin’s wild ride is to keep an assortment of soothing toners on hand. Keeping them in the refrigerator is a surefire way to cool down irritated skin in a snap. Using ingredients such as aloe vera, rosewater, chamomile, lavender, and cucumber will ensure that your skin will be soft, smooth and stress-free in no time.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The sign of the bull signifies Taurus, and with it comes the traits of kindness, steadfastness, and even stubbornness. Taurus sometimes has a problem with changing routines, but it is essential that you and your skin switch things up from time to time to renew and refresh your complexion. If you are not seeing the results that you want from your current skincare regime, feel free to try new products and experiment with different ways to care for your skin. Ingredients such as sweet almond oil, sesame, argan oil, and coconut oil will give you that dewy, fresh complexion you long for.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
For all of the variety that Gemini provides in relationships, they are also known to be a bit indecisive at times. For the sake of consistency and results, stick to a regime that you find longer than a few weeks. You need to provide your skin the opportunity to get maximum benefit from the products you choose; use as directed and you will see results. Products containing ingredients such as rose water, aloe, almond oil, and jojoba will calm and soothe your skin and satisfy your desire to see results in a relatively short time.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Cancer is a water sign, known to be the most unpredictable of all signs in the zodiac. Caring and compassionate one minute, temperamental and biting the very next, you never know what mood you’re going to encounter in a Cancer. Time for balance, dear Cancer. Your skin is as temperamental as you are, so you need products to sooth and provide balance. Macadamia, jojoba, and sesame oils provide a delicate balance of moisture and are soothing to your skin. Geranium oil can also aid in reducing water retention, which seems to be a pervading issue for Cancer as well. Using these ingredients in your skincare regime will reduce irritation and swelling and provide you with a glowing complexion.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leo is strong and fiery, but at times a Leo can be rather vain. Leo can fall victim to the lofty claims of youth and beauty that many products promise, but fail to deliver. Don’t get caught up in all the hype that media presents to you when choosing products; pick a skincare line that will go the distance with you. Ingredients such as buckthorn, jojoba oil, and rose water will bring out your best complexion yet.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgo is intelligent, practical, and tends to be a bit of a perfectionist. Beware of this perfectionist tendency, however, as it can cause undue stress to you and your skin if you fall victim to it. Pamper your skin as you practice compassion on yourself, and you will shine brighter than ever before. Choosing ingredients such as chamomile, lavender, rose, and orange will calm your skin and provide you with some much-needed stress relief.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
The sign of the Libra is all about balance and justice. At times your need for balance leaves you in a state of indecision and limbo, and this translates to your skincare routine as well. Sticking with a routine for more than a few weeks is guaranteed to provide you the stability you need to start seeing changes in your skin. Ingredients such as argon, prickly pear, macadamia, and pomegranate satisfy your taste for the romantic while nourishing your skin and bringing it into balance.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio can be many things rolled into one—passionate, loyal, subdued, intense—-and your self-care habits reflect the stormy nature of your soul. Learn to embrace all facets of your personality as you learn to care for yourself and your skin. Ingredients such as patchouli, sandalwood, and lavender bring everything into harmony and provide you with an inner sense of peace while caring for your skin.
Sagittarius ( November 22-December 21)
Sagittarius is a very strong personality—you bring excitement and flavor to every situation, but you can also be a bit impatient when it comes to waiting for things to happen. Learning to follow a simple skin care routine will be instrumental to you seeing long term results over time, so learn some patience when caring for yourself. It’ll be worth it in the long run. Ingredients such as argon, coconut, olive, and grapeseed oils will provide you the most bang for your buck when striving to improve your skin and your complexion.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorn is very driven to succeed and can be quite successful. You are sympathetic and loyal to others, and you have a fiery drive to see things through to the very end. No matter what your skin care regime choice is, you are bound to use it to the fullest. Making time for yourself is an essential piece in maximizing the effectiveness of your self-care. Ingredients such as lavender, geranium, and peppermint reduce your anxiety and bring out your best, glowing complexion.
No matter what your sign, you must recognize the importance of taking care of your skin as part of total health and wellness. Your skin is the largest organ on your body and it deserves care and protection, as it serves as a barrier between you and the rest of the world.
