Welcome to this month’s Beauty Horoscope—our series on astrology-based beauty. Each month, we celebrate the corresponding zodiac sign and offer tips to help you cultivate your best look. Not your b-day month? Don’t sweat it—we’ll profile the entire zodiac together over the course of the year. Read on for some Capricorn-specific beauty, skincare, and makeup tips.
Happy Birthday, Capricorn!
Smart, hardworking, and fully determined, a Capricorn will always achieve what they set their mind to. As natural born leaders and masters of self-control, they have the ability to lead the way and inspire change in all of us. With a new year upon us, we could all take a cue from Capricorn and revamp our routines. In honor of your birthday, Capricorn, we’ve created a full-proof nighttime skincare regimen to keep your complexion happy, healthy, and glowing well into the new year.
Step 1: Makeup Remover
Don’t fuss with stubborn makeup and dirt at the end of a long day. Simply whisk it away with BIODERMA Sensibio H2O makeup-removing micellar water. This best-selling, no-rinse cleansing solution instantly cleanses and revitalizes skin. Dirt, oil, and even stubborn makeup don’t stand a chance against this one-of-kind micellar water. It’s suitable for all skin types (yes, even sensitive skin) and makes the perfect first step for any nighttime beauty routine.
Step 2: Cleanse + Rebalance
Now that your skin is a blank slate, you’re ready to rejuvenate and revitalize. We love Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash. This foaming, gentle face wash balances skin’s pH—neutralizing oil while comforting dryness, making it perfect for combination skin types. Nourishing ingredients like bergamot, spearmint, and lavender soothe the senses. Skin is left cleansed, comforted, and—well, the name says it best—balanced!
Step 3: Time for Treatment
This step is the perfect opportunity to give skin a healthy dose of what it craves in the form of a serum of treatment. That’s where Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment comes in. This cult-favorite serum uses high potency purified grade lactic acid to exfoliate dead skin cells, while licorice and lemongrass diminishes the appearance of hyperpigmentation. The lightweight formula absorbs instantly into skin leaving skin soft and smooth. You’ll notice visibly firmer, brighter, more radiant skin each and every morning.
Step 4: Moisturizing is a Must
The final step in this nighttime skincare routine may be last, but it’s certainly not ‘least’. A hydrating night cream can replenish skin with the moisture lost throughout the day, allowing skin’s natural rejuvenation process to take place while you sleep.
Algentist GENIUS Sleeping Collagen is a buttery, (vegan!) collagen-infused night cream that delivers essential nutrients and intense hydration for a dewy, soft, glowing skin by morning. The unique formula contains Active Vegan Collagen™, collagen amino acids, and ceramides to plump, smooth, and visibly nourish skin. Now that’s what we call beauty sleep!
