HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! This year is year of the pig, which represents luck,good fortune, wealth, honesty and prosperity. If you haven’t followed your 2019 skincare New Year resolutions as perfectly as you had hoped (we’re only
human!) then this Chinese New Year could be the perfect opportunity for a fresh
start and to get back on track! Need a new approach or a step in the right
direction? Why not try skincare based on your Zodiac sign! Follow this guide to
find your astrological skincare compatibility:

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries are an incredibly independent sign that doesn’t follow trends to fit in with
everyone else is and their individuality is what allows them to thrive. With this in
mind, Aries suit exploring undiscovered and unique skincare brands that provide
something new. Why not try a new product with unique ingredient such as snail
extract? Your ability to be a leader allows you to choose something impulsively
with great skin results!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus is a sign of the Bull, which has a reputation for being stubborn. This may
cause you to be stuck in your skincare ways, which although they work well, you
should open yourself to the idea that it could be even better! The Taurus element
is Earth, and this is your strength. Products with natural, environmentally
friendly products will give your skin the extra glow it’s been craving. Your flower
is also a Rose, this should be a key ingredient in your skincare routine.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
Gemini is an energetic, quick-witted sign whose mind that is always racing. Your
element is Air, which carries you through your busy way of living. Choose
products that are lightweight and allow your skin to breathe. This will ensure
heavy-duty products will not weigh down your quick pace and the Air element
can reach your skin. But don’t forget your SPF! The sun is not in your sign. Your
flower is lavender, so use this calming ingredient to help you stay grounded.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer is ruled by emotion. Cancers are highly intelligent and feel very deeply.
These characteristics make you a kind-hearted person, but this can sometimes
be a burden to bare as the effects of your selflessness is often a heavy weight to
carry. It is time for you to stop always thinking about others and put yourself
first! Your sign’s lucky Gem is Pearl. Treat yourself to a product containing Black Pearl. This is a luxury ingredient that will put the brightness back into your skin.
You deserve it!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, you are beautiful inside and out – and you know it! No one can dim your
light, and you wouldn’t care if they tried either. Your confidence is undeniable
and your gestures are grand. Why should your skincare be any different? After
all, your sign’s colour is Gold, which says it all! Gold can be found in a variety of
skincare products – sheet masks, gel masks, oil, cleanser, cream and liquid Gold.
So treat yourself to skincare that shines as bright as you.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, you are inspired by all things beautiful and won’t settle for anything less
than picture-perfect. Your element is Earth, allowing you to be highly in touch
with nature. Find yourself brands with beautiful packaging and that are
environmentally friendly, with a focus on natural ingredients (Such as
Hydrapuff!). These brands will make you feel better physically and emotionally,
as they will give your skin pique health and will look AMAZING on your
undeniably perfectly-organised dressing table (and on your Instagram).

Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, your sign is incredibly romantic. Therefore, it is no surprise that your
sign’s flower is the Rose. Roses are soft, beautiful and perfect in appearance –
exactly how you want your life to be. It is important for your sign to learn to let
go, so while you should include skincare products with Rose as an ingredient,
you should also keep things as simple as you can. Don’t buy every type of
product because you think you should! Less is always more.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio, your element is Water! This means you need to hydrate, hydrate,
hydrate! Although your skincare should be hydration-orientated, be careful not
to go too far. Your all-or-nothing personality may cause you to overdo it, making
your skin become congested which causes breakouts. Be gentle to your skin and
keep your ingredients simple for maximum results. Hydrapuff is your ideal
product, it’s written in the stars!

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, you are a natural born leader with a zest for life and adventure! Your
skincare should reflect this. Although your go-getting personality encourages
you to allow your skincare to take a back seat, it’s time to take control and keep
your skincare as exciting as you want it to be. Don’t get held back by the same-
old, let that risk-taking personality encourage you to try new things. Aim for
something that brightens your complexion, as sleep has never really been your

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, everything is black and white with you and grey areas are unheard of.
You like a strict guide on how you should do everything; this is what puts you at
ease. Not everything is one-size-fits-all, especially your skincare. Sometimes you
need to learn to trust your instincts, as you are much more intuitive than you
give yourself credit for. Go to a beauty store and spend some time looking at and
reading products. Think about what you want from your skincare and pick what
you feel will fill that role. Trust yourself on this one!

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, you are very charismatic, with your eyes being your best feature. Use
this as your focus point for your skincare, ensuring your under eyes are always
bright and smooth. Make yourself one of our Hydrapuff mini-masks and place
under your eyes for an instant hydration boost! Focus on ingredients with anti-
inflammatory properties to allow your natural features to stand out. Use any
skincare that makes you feel good about yourself, as self-love is important for
you when learning how to express your emotions better.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, you are a highly visual sign. Anything that is visually stimulating is your
escapism and your happy place. Don’t get too hung up on skincare that has
attractive packaging. Of course, pretty packaging is very appealing, but you need
to consider the quality of what you put on your skin. Focus on finding skincare
that is a happy balance between quality ingredients and nice packaging. As your
element is water, hydration should also be a focus point for optimal skincare.


Remember, Skincare is Self Care!
