What began as a new era, soon turned into a nightmare. The pandemic took over our lives and confined us to the four walls of our house. With nowhere to go and not much to do, most of us were left reminiscing of the times that were. But, as we inch towards the end of 2020, most of us have made our peace with the fact that the new normal is here to stay (at least for a while). With the festive season around the corner, the month of October will be a testimony to acceptance and adapting.

How to make the most of a bad situation and turn it into your favour is what festive season 2020 is all about and… here’s what October 2020 has in store for you!

 

Aries

Aries

October brings new energy and a refreshed sense of feeling for Aries. You might feel a rush of energy to do and say all the things that were kept on hold for the past couple of months. It’s a Lunar phase that will embolden you and yes, you can finally express your hidden desires. Including the urge to splurge on beauty staples that were previously ignored due to uncertain times! We think you should totally go for it. The Dermalogica Pure Night Moisturiser is perfect to prep your skin for the festive glam.

 

Taurus

Taurus

Dear Taureans, your ruling planet Venus, has new plans for you this month. While you might already have a good hold on pressing issues, October is all set to present them in a new light. This shift in perception will open up your mind and make you much more receptive of change. Especially when it comes to skin and personal care. Maybe try an exciting new ingredient? The Vaseline Body Ice Gel Cream comes with hyaluronic acid and while you might already be using this hydrating ingredient for your face, it’s time for some body care too. Plus, it is perfect to overcome the annoying October heat!

 

Gemini

Gemini

The mercury retrograde will kick off its final leg this month and unfortunately for you, dear Geminis, it means an influx of emotions. The brunt of this emotional force will be taken by your private life, which means we anticipate some stress signs to show up on your skin. This might be the right time to invest in a restorative night treatment, like the Lakme Youth Infinity Skin Firming Night Creme. It replenishes your skin as you sleep so that you can wake up with a fresh face, ready to take on the challenges of the day!

 

Cancer

Cancer

Holding on to grudges is never healthy — a lesson that October seems to have in store for you. Especially since we are stepping into the festive season, which is a time for forgiveness and family. Maybe get over those petty fights with your sister or mom and apologize with a peace offering? We know we’d be happy if someone gifted us a glam essential ahead of the festive season and the Lakme Absolute Spotlight EyeShadow Palette - Sundowner seems the perfect choice as a present *wink*.

 

Leo

Leo

October 2020 finds the proud Leo in an exceptionally thrifty mood! While you will get distracted by splurge-worthy deals, your celestial ruler, the Sun, will keep telling you to save up. We think you should heed that advice, especially when it comes to skincare. However, we don’t expect you to settle for anything comprising either and found you a great deal. The Dove Deep Moisturisation Cream won’t burn a hole in your pocket and will take care of your skin’s moisturisation needs for the season.

 

Virgo

Virgo

The month of October sees the introspective Virgo in a comparatively tender light. You might feel the need to put your witty, sarcastic side on hold and be more open and kind to the world around you. This is also necessary as the changing seasons are bound to bring on some hair issues and while you might feel the need to tackle them with force, we suggest you practice patience while dealing with them. A formulation like the Love Beauty & Planet Coconut Water And Mimosa Flower Volume & Bounty Shampoo + Conditioner Combo will take care of all your hair care needs, gently!

 

Libra

Libra

Happy birthday, you sweet little thing, Libra! Your b’ day month is filled with chill vibes and with most places just about opening up, you might feel the urge to step out after spending months in quarantine. Just make sure to take the adequate social distancing steps and slather on the Pond’s Sun Protect Non-Oily Sunscreen SPF 30 to avoid dimming that lovely birthday month glow.

 

Scorpio

Scorpio

The month of October will see Scorpios take a rejuvenated approach to their health and wellness. From looking after your skin’s moisture levels to upgrading your daytime skincare routine, your focus is shifting towards fool-proof beauty regimen and we applaud that. To make your life a tad bit easier, we recommend an easy-to-use, dynamic skincare staple to keep handy at all times… the Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Wipes can save the day during an emergency!

 

Sagittarius

Sagittarius

The month of October will see overly energised Sag queens losing their focus a bit. You will be pressed for options to spend all your festive mirth on and while this might seem obvious, we suggest channelling it to getting in shape? Don’t let your spirits dampen if you can’t step out to go dancing and pub hopping, you can always go for an early morning run. And as for post-run skincare, we suggest grabbing the Ponds Skin Fit Post Workout Cooldown Scrub Facewash at least twice a week!

 

Capricorn

Capricorn

As opposed to their neighbours (the overly hyper Sagittarius), Capricorn babies will be looking at grabbing some rest this month. From doing elaborate nighttime routines to taking extra long showers and pampering your tresses, a really calm and relaxed month awaits for you. You will also, finally have the time to indulge in some added hair TLC, and we suggest to indulge in some deep conditioning sessions with the TIGI Bed Head Urban Anti-Dotes Resurrection 3 Conditioner.

 

Aquarius

Aquarius

Aquarians will have the lion’s share of festive fun since Mercury will step into its last retrograde in this month. We are talking about a month spent in the throes of family fun, binge eating and spending one evening after the other in lehengas for Zoom get-togethers. Just make sure that you keep any BO at bay given that the evenings are going to sweaty AF. The Rexona Aloe Vera Underarm Odour Protection Roll On will keep your pits smelling fresh and feeling nourished!

 

Pisces

Pisces

October 2020 seems to be lucky when it comes to love in the Pisces life! You can anticipate chance meet-cutes or your existing partners being overly warm and fond of you this month. We suggest keeping your tresses in an excellent state so that your BAE can run their hands through them with ease. Try a formula that packs a punch, like the Tresemme Smooth & Shine Shampoo for a luscious mane that nobody can resist.
