While full moons have a reputation for making us feel loopy or out of whack, they're also known for bringing about certain advantages, one of which is that our beauty routines get a boost—especially when it comes to changing it up. For example, cutting your hair on a full moon yields healthier hair and enables it to grow more quickly too. It's also a great time to kick bad habits: Full moons are about letting go of what isn't working in your life to make room for something that will.

Tonight, the full moon is in the sign Scorpio, a water sign that's ruled by the planet Pluto. This means that it's a deep-feeling and passionate sign. When there is a moon illuminating our feelings and emotional needs in the sign Scorpio, this intensifies everything. Attuning your skincare regimen to match your inner needs does wonders, and this full moon is especially potent if you want to utilize it to transform your skin and get rid of negative habits once and for all.
