Read ahead for our take on the best skincare routine and products for your sign!
Your element is fire, and like your fiery nature, you are passionate, motivated, and constantly on the go. On the flipside, you are easily frustrated by details, can be impatient and prone to inflammation. The best skincare routine for you, Aries, is one that you can stick to. Remember that it takes 12-weeks to see the full effect of a new routine, so do not get disheartened early and switch it up too often.

Geminis, much like their element of air, like to float around. They are sociable, gentle, and adaptable, but can also be inconsistent and indecisive. Geminis naturally dislike repetition and routine. When it comes to skincare, try establishing a efficient cleanse and moisturize routine that allows for experimentation with things around it like toners and serums. Sample sets are perfect for a Gemini’s personality and will allow them to try different brands and products. Give Dr. Ellyan's basic Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize routine.

Cosmic crabs are deeply intuitive, sentimental and loyal creatures. Just like their zodiac representative, Cancers are known to retreat into their “shells” and can be “crabby” at times. Their sensitivity runs deep and can manifest in their skin. The best skincare routine for Cancers tends to be comforting, moisture-rich and stress-free routines with proven products made for sensitive skin. Try Janssen Cosmetics' Intense Calming Cream made specifically for sensitive and eczema-prone skin.
People born under the sign of Leo are creative, passionate and natural born leaders. These cosmic lions are usually surrounded by friends who look up to them in one respect or the other. Likely because they make great friends - always loyal, warm-hearted and cheerful. They take an experimental approach to life and that doesn’t stop when it comes to skincare. The best skincare routine for these lions is whatever the latest trend is. This year, that means - minimalistic routines, refillable beauty, multi-functioning products, and products with added blue light protection. The Dr. Ellyan #4 Revital Serum is jam-packed with anti-aging goodness to help with elasticity, dryness, large pores and wrinkles.
Loyal, analytical, hardworking and practical. True to their earthly element, Virgos are grounded individuals who like cleanliness, nature and have a deep sense of humanity. They can be overly critical and prone to worry, so the first step to healthier skin in 2021 is to relax. Stick to that meditation and workout routine to relieve stress. Their methodological approach to life is evident in their skincare preferences - opting for practical, well-researched routines and products. Try adding a bit of variety in 2021.

Airy Libras are the diplomats of the zodiac - fair-minded, harmonious and constantly chasing for equality and justice. Like their element, Libras tend to find purpose in boosting up those around them. They are very romantic, giving and gracious by nature, but are prone to indecisiveness and insecurity. Libras run on the dry side so it’s important to pay special attention to the moisture balance of your skin, especially as seasons change. Picking up some environmentally friendly or cause-related products will help ingredient-conscious-Libras feel great about their skincare regimen. The STÂSS Repair Mask and Janssen Cosmetics' Intense Calming Cream will do wonders for your skin.
Scorpios are born fierce and determined with a smidge of obsessiveness. They are also naturally passionate, assertive, brave and resourceful. It’s almost as if they are born with an innate understanding of how the universe works. Their element is water, and like other water signs intuition and emotions play an important role in their lives. Chances are, if a Scorpio is into skincare, they’re also a little obsessive about it. The best routine for a Scorpio is something that they can stick to. When the need for exfoliation hits, which it inevitably will, opt for something gentle like the Dr. Ellyan #1 & #2 Magic Peeling Set.
Fiery Sagittarians tend to be generous and idealistic with a killer sense of humor. They’re the travelers of the zodiac and like freedom, philosophy and being outdoors. Details are meaningless to this mutable sign, and being constrained is the worst feeling in the world. When it comes to skincare, simplicity with efficacy is the way to go. Skincare freedom comes in the form of easily portable, multi-tasking products that pack a punch. If you can’t hop on a plane and get away, try exploring products from different parts of the world to satiate that need. Janssen Cosmetics' Soft Cleansing Mousse and Neuro Balm came all the way from Germany and gets the job done with the least amount of things you need to pack in your bags.
Cosmic goats are the most responsible and disciplined of the zodiac, exuding self-control at all times. This earth sign isn’t afraid to dig in and put in the work necessary to slowly, but surely get to the top. Capricorns are serious by nature, and can be unforgiving, holding onto things longer than they should. Like other earth signs, Capricorns can be prone to clogged pores, so it’s important to deep cleanse once in a while. A simple, yet effective, skincare routine with one or two luxe standout products will work best for these goats that strive for luxury. Try the Dr. Ellyan #0 Powder Enzyme Wash and iStelle's Skin Enhancer Cream, and TIZO's Eye Renewal for a simple, luxe-feeling routine.
Aquarians are deep thinkers, highly intellectual, and love helping others. If there’s no mental stimulations, they’re *poof* gone. They can either be introverts or extroverts, but will always need reset time alone. This fun and progressive sign prefers fun routines. Opt for a good foundational cleanse and moisturize routine that leaves room for fun, exciting additions. In 2021, make Mask Mondays or Selfcare Sundays a “thing”. Products that are fun and align with social or environmental causes will likely appeal to the humanitarian in you. Give the Janssen Cosmetics' Instant Soothing Mask and Intense Calming Cream a try. They're made in Germany with no preservatives and allergenic perfumes. TIZO's TIZO 2 Non-Tinted Primer / Sunscreen SPF 40 is FREE of chemical sunscreen filters, dyes, fragrances, oils, preservatives, reef-friendly and isn't tested on animals.
Pisceans are the friendliest of all signs - compassionate, artistic by nature, tolerant and oh-so-idealistic. The downside is that they can be over-trusting, prone to sadness and a desire to escape reality when people or the world don’t live up to their ideals. Luckily, your skincare ideals don’t have to disappoint. Like all water signs, sensitivity tends to be an issue. Opt for products without abrasive cleansers, harsh astringents, and combat redness. If anyone can find a way to achieve the same results using fewer steps, a Pisces can. For the "do everything" mask, give the STÂSS Repair Mask a try. Dr. Ellyan's #6 Hyaluronic Serum will help you keep your moisture balance in check, and Janssen Cosmetics' Neuro Skin Balm to soothe your sensitive skin.
