I recently read a conversation between a girl and her dermatologist. During one of her regular checkups, her dermat suddenly stopped and asked for her zodiac sign. When the girl answered that she was a Leo, the dermat just smiled and said ah! Fire signs, no wonder. They tend to attract a lot of inflammation. I chuckled reading it and moved on, but it got me thinking: are skincare and zodiac signs related? And while reading on, I realised that your skincare routine has a lot to do with your zodiac and its traits. Yes, really. So here, I gathered some intel on the best beauty products for you this month, based on your zodiac sign. Sounds fun, right? Let’s get started right away.
It’s Aquarius season and we know you can’t keep calm! Known for having a strong, dominant personality, this month you are in the process of evolving from a role that’s making you feel stuck and moving in a direction that helps you discover yourself. This month calls for some fun and light moments with your loved ones, making it the perfect month to rejuvenate and be impulsive. So, to rejuvenate thoroughly, go for the Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub with Pomegranate Seeds and Shea Butter. It will get rid of dead skin cells and nourish your skin, giving you the fresh start you need.
The most intuitive, empathetic and sensitive sign of the zodiac, dear Pisces, this is the month to put yourself out there. Don’t be shy to put out your thoughts and opinions, especially in the avenues where you have the talent or skill needed. But be careful and pace yourself this month and look at any problem you’re facing from a wider perspective before jumping to conclusions. The mantra for this month is to be patient. But we know how hard it is for you, given your need to overthink every minute detail, leading to stress. That’s why you need the Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift Masque in your arsenal to de-stress the skin and brighten it. Be gentle on yourself, Pisces; you’re worth more than you think!
The first fire sign of the zodiac, Aries never shy away from being bold or experimental. This month, in particular, is packed with romance for you, so keep an eye out and be open to making new bonds or strengthening existing ones. This month is going to particularly present an opportunity for you to enter the spotlight, so brace yourself and be brave enough to grab it because you are meant for the spotlight and you know that, Aries! So, for naturally-born leaders with charismatic personas, we’ve got just the product for you. Go for the Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint - Cashmere Mauve. Statement-making lips are sure to give you all the boss base feels you need to take on any challenge like a kween!
Like their ethereal spirit animal, the bull, Taureans love relaxing in serene and rustic environments encircled by balmy sounds, aromas and soothing flavours. And this month is an eventful one as far as your social life is concerned. The stars are rooting for you to get out of your emotional hibernation and be the ever-glowing, radiant person that people will most certainly notice and want around them. Between this, you need an occasional break to relax and get into your zone. And for that, indulge in some self-pampering with the Love Beauty & Planet Murumuru Butter and Rose Moisturizing Body Wash . Once you’re out of the shower, smelling like a treat and feeling relaxed AF, go on with your day and win hearts like you’re destined to. Don’t worry if you find yourself a little restless later in the month as you try to get a new endeavour off the ground. You got this!
Intellectually inclined and mentally strong, Gemini’s are quick-witted, smart and often the centre of attention in every social scenario. At the same time, they tend to be very fidgety and moody. This month is meant for your spirits to soar with the beginning of a new year, forgetting all the mishappenings of 2021. You will not only get a newfound opportunity this month, but might be able to clear off a few issues that have been draining you emotionally and financially. This is the month to take care of your skin and invest in products that will give you a lit-from-within glow. Get your hands on the Lakmé 9to5 Vitamin C+ Skincare Value Set. It includes a day cream, night cream and facial serum to take care of your skin and help you achieve flawless, glowing skin. Psst… it’s priced at ₹999 only, so you won’t be burning a hole in your pocket too.
Welcome to 2022, Cancer! You may have doubted yourself in the past if you could make it this long with your sanity intact, but this is the month you realise the power you hold within yourself, moonchild! Make sure to keep a lookout for magical moments coming your way to make you realise how far you have come with all the work (which at that time seemed pointless) you’ve put in. This month, the only product you need beside you is the Lakmé Lumi cream to give your skin the 3D glow it needs, so you can waltz through the month seamlessly feeling the magic around you.
Dear Leo, your opinion on new beginnings or fresh starts can be a little cynical right now, but if you just keep your past experiences where they belong (in the past), you might just actually get a new beginning in an area that has been troubling you for a while. This month is going to be quite bittersweet, so be careful where you’re stepping and be ready to make little compromises if and when required to get desired results. This month, all you need is the Dermalogica Age Bright Spot Fader to not only get rid of breakouts but also fade the post-breakout marks and achieve even skin tones. Go headfirst into 2022 with clear skin and thoughts. Okay, Leo?
Oh, my sweet, sensitive and often critical Virgo. January is usually an easy-going month with new beginnings and celebrations, and this is the month you’ll receive a prospect of a new venture that may immensely excite you. But pace yourself and go slow as more information might unfold slowly, which might change your mind about certain things. This month, with a lot happening around you, you need a little R&R. Let the Pond’s Hydrating Sheet Mask With Vitamin B3 And 100% Natural Coconut Water be your best friend this month to help you relax and give you the radiant skin to match your radiant personality.
One of the most empathetic signs of the zodiac, Librans are known for being charismatic and elegant, but can often seem indecisive because of their constant need to strike the right balance. January is the time you should feel more adept at expressing yourself and share some deep thoughts you’ve been dealing with for a hot minute there. This month we need you to get talking and speak your mind. Go for the Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint - Statement Red to channel your bold side and understand that you’re more valued and stronger than you think you are!
Scorpio’s are known for their magnetic personalities and immense emotional strengths. And this is the month to put it to good use. If you have been feeling a conflict with someone close to you, this is the time to sort it out and start the year on a good note. Further, while this month is the perfect time for emotional retribution, it might not be the best time to make life-altering changes that you may have been considering — like moving to a new place, getting a new job, etc. Stand your ground and you’ll truly reap the benefits later on. So, in the spirit of standing your ground, go for the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hair Serum that will keep your hair tamed by getting rid of extra frizz, making them manageable while adding shine and lustre to your tresses.
This month will present you with an opportunity to learn something new within your area of interest, which might prosper into something more concrete if you grab it at the right time. While there might be some exciting offers for the adventurous junkie in you, stay focused on your work-life balance and be on top of your goals and aspirations this month. Successful completion of a goal might open up some interesting doors for you in the near future, so keep a lookout for that. Talking about interesting — this month is the perfect opportunity to invest in the Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner that will hydrate, tone and soothe your skin and help you meet your skincare goals at least. But jokes aside, you got this, you relentless perfectionist!
Capricorns are stable, serious, confident and are the most organised of the lot. This month is for positive thoughts and self-motivation. Things are going your way for now and all you need to do is maintain the good thoughts to continue this era! It’s time to stop analysing and trying to decode other people, no matter how tempting that might be. Concentrate on yourself and the good run you’ve been having. The only extra thing you need is the Simple Booster Serum - 3% Hyaluronic Acid + B5 to soothe your skin and provide extra hydration while actively improving your skin texture. This month is all about boosting — hydration, confidence, positivity, everything!
