The Skincare Products You Should Use in May, According to Astrology

With a degree in neuroscience and art history from UCLA, Rose Theodora is an expert when it comes to color therapy and astrology. Each month, she'll be sharing astrological insights for your sign, as well as the beauty products you should be using—consider these your personal beauty horoscopes.




May is all about sensual excitement, keeping those pores tight, and your skin glowing. After seven years, the planet Uranus will change signs, entering Taurus on May 15. This will cause sudden changes and realizations related to your finances, relationships, and routines in your life. This means that your skin will want luxury, quality products, and you'll quickly become more concerned with contents rather than the packaging—if you weren't already.

May 1: Mayday.

May 5: Mother's day

May 13: Mercury enters Taurus, and you'll want to speak about your products more than usual. Beauty bloggers, this is your time to shine, and you likely have a lot of Taurus influence somewhere in your chart. Leo and Taurus are the top beauty glam queens, and Virgo's are our well versed in what's healthiest/toxic-free. On another note, everyone will be thinking quality in favor of quantity.

May 15: New moon in Taurus, staying grounded and sensual amid the heavy and abrupt changes. Remember that emotional and financial security comes from adapting to the inevitable changes.

May 15: Uranus changes gear. Uranus is where we want to break free. It moves to into Taurus today, which means that we, you, and everybody wants nicer things, more security with love, and career. Expect the next seven years to be monumental. Look at the last seven and see how far you've come.

May 16: Mars enters Taurus. Mars is representative of the physical body and physical stamina and vitality. While in Taurus, expect stubborn and steadfast to be your modes of operation. Think quality ingredients, more sleep, and luxurious creams.

May 19: Venus enters Cancer. Maternal, sensitive, sensual, and evocative are where you feel most centered. Now you'll opt for tobacco-scented candles, mother of pearl creams, and more baths.

May 20: Sun enters Gemini, and it's officially Gemini season. Happy Birthday, Geminis!

Communication is everything and so is taking yourself more lightly now. You'll opt for more pastels and color and lighter products. In fact, you'll probably want to try a little of everything, so go easy on indecisiveness with your skincare routine to avoid breakouts.

May 25: A day for dreaming, fantasizing, and photo shoots.

May 29: Full Moon in Sagittarius. This full moon warrants against self-righteousness, entitlement, and fleeing without considering wisdom from the elders; in this case, the opinions of those you respect and love most. Surrender to the facts and allow this passionate moon, in aspect to Mars, to instill a deep reverence for your life.

May 29: Mercury returns home to Gemini, and communication is on point.
