Skincare Astrology: Does Your Sun Sign Match Your Skincare Style?

Always chasing down the latest and greatest? Or does your stash have five of each of your HGs? Check out our cheeky skincare astrology guide to see if your sun sign accurately predicts the kind of skincare lover you are.


 

Am I the only one who looks forward to looking up my daily horoscope and reposting astrology memes? I’ve always been interested in astrology, but I’m absolutely loving the newfound interest in all things **stars**.

 

Just how does your sun sign influence your skincare life? Read my take on skincare astrology (and make sure to comment if you loved this!).

 

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

An Aries  — a natural leader who loves (and seeks) new and challenging adventures. An Aries is going to be the one to track down the new essence that’s popular all over K-Instagram that’s not even available in the U.S. Oh, and they’ll pay that extra shipping charge, too, because they need it before everyone else.

 

 

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Taureans love a good routine. They dislike change, crave stability and reliable products. They’re gonna be the ones who have used the same COSRX BHA Liquid for four years now and don’t show any signs of switching it up any time soon.

 

 

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

istock/Natoushe

 

Have you ever complimented someone on their skin and they just automatically start giving you the rundown on their entire routine without even asking? Like, the full 10-step routine, including their weekly peels and treatments? That’s a Gemini for ya.

 

 

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

istock/Natoushe

 

Cancers love comfort, luxury, a super nurturing environment. They’re the ones who come home from work, immediately wash their face (and a sheet mask is not optional), and put on their PJs and lounge on the couch taking sheet mask selfies while wrapped in a giant robe. A mood.

 

 

Leo (July 23-August 22)

istock/Natoushe

 

Leos LOVE to be the center of attention. They work at Sephora as a skincare consultant and have flawless skin and will probably use a sheet mask that’s two month past due because they are very, very brave souls.

 

 

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

 

istock/Natoushe

 

Virgos are the organizers and the planners of the zodiac. They strive for perfectionism — so their skincare stash is organized by step, type of product, and in alphabetical order. They also have a spreadsheet of every single one of their products in order of expiration date.

 

 

Libra (September 23-October 23)

istock/Natoushe

 

Oh, the charming, introverted Libra. They have an easygoing attitude and love all things beautiful so they probably have a shelf full of the The History of Whoo that they just stare and look at and never use. (I can relate, tbh.)

 

 

Scorpio (October 24-November 21)

skincare astrology
istock/Natoushe

 

Scorpios are the one who dramatically proclaim on their Instagram stories they’ve found the best product ever, only to write a 1,000 word blog post on just how much they hated it five days later. Girl, they love the dramatics, okay!

 

 

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

skincare astrology
istock/Natoushe

 

HI MY SAG FRIENDS. Did a product not give instant results? TRASH. Using one product for longer than two months? No, thanks. We Sags are an impatient, freedom loving bunch. Don’t try to chain us to one product, because we’ll revolt.

 

 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

istock/Natoushe

 

I have a Capricorn friend who has used the same cleanser since high school. Capricorns like what they like, and there’s no changing that. Don’t try to tell them about that new product you love because they aren’t here for it.

 

 

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

skincare astrology
istock/Natoushe

 

An Aquarius thinks that using makeup wipes is a substitute for an oil cleanser. (Spoiler alert, they aren’t.) But at the same time, they are the ones who have an intense nighttime ritual that involves four different kinds of masks … but they only do it during a full moon.

 

 

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

skincare astrology
istock/Natoushe

 

Oh, Pisceans — the slightly unrealistic dreamers. They are the ones who believe that cream that’s on the late-night infomercial is actually going to solve all of their skincare problems. Girl, it’s a scam. Get yourself a good AHA and a vitamin C serum, okay!

 

What’s your sun sign, and was my skincare astrology forecast close? Let me know!

I'm an Aries and being a total sucker for essences is completely true -- along with impulsive skincare shopping sprees. Oops.

I'm a Virgo, but my Gemini moon and rising tend to overshadow my sun sign. That's certainly true in this case, but maybe I should take some cues from Virgo! A spreadsheet sounds like a magnificent idea!

rosaliedeltoromua

Hehe this is so great. As a Capricorn, I do agree to a point. I have favorite products that I like to use over again but as I get older I try to be open minded of any products that will help my skin.

darlingbeauty

Sagittarius here! That is so spot on! I love trying new things. I'm always changing brands

rosefrazee

Ha! I am a Pisces and this is spot on. Back in the day I ordered so many products from infomercials. I'm talking everything from makeup to exercise stuff. I even ordered a steam mop. Oh yes! I'm a dreamer :)

caitlynquamme

I'm a capricorn and while I don't really believe in this kind of thing I still find it fun. Who doesn't?
Mine isn't too accurate. I'm all about exploring. If you tell me about this innovative new brand you heard about, I'm going to ask for the link asap!

kelciehoward

Hahaha. This gave me a good laugh. I am an Aquarius. I don't believe mines very accurate. I don't use makeup wipes to remove my makeup and I don't mask as often as I would like. I defiantly don't keep track of the full moon. Maybe I'm doing it wrong. hahaha

ninawiskow

Loved this!! I’m a Cancer and it’s definitely accurate, I really would come home after a long day of doing something and just put my pjs on to relax. Self care and relaxation before anything lol.

viviennemanuel

LOL! I am a LEO, I have sheet masks that I swore up and down I would use on a regular! I still have them in a little basket that i go to when i have the spare time! They are all still good, GREAT items to have when you need a little R&R!

preslieperez

My two favorite topics in one post, astrology & skincare! I’m a Libra and cannot agree more. I probably have enough skincare/makeup to last me a lifetime, but I still can’t stop shopping for more 😍
