When you think about it, we kind of live our lives by our horoscopes: The stars play a huge part in our day-to-day, affecting the paths our careers, friendships, and love interests take, not to mention the quirky characteristics that make us, well, us. And they also seem to have a lot to say about our tastes in beauty. It doesn’t matter how old you are, where you live, the season it is, or what’s currently trending: There will always be products that certain zodiac signs gravitate toward.
So in celebration of Fresh’s limited-edition zodiac-inspired lip treatments, we decided to dig deeper with famed astrologer (and all-around fascinating human being) Susan Miller. Ahead, you’ll find out more details on the products you should start adding to your skincare routine based off of your astrological sign. One tip from Miller: Don’t make any extreme changes to your appearance until after the Venus retrograde on November 16; you might be very disappointed in the outcome.
A self-starter fire sign, Aries are confident and adventuresome, but in terms of their beauty routine, it can be hard to venture out and try something new. They find comfort in sticking to the originals they know and love, and we can’t blame them—especially when it’s Fresh’s Brown Sugar Body Polish ($67) or Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask ($92).
Beauty Mantra: “Don’t get stuck with a tried-and-true product until you’ve ventured out into something new, because chances are you’ll like it. Try and keep an open mind in beauty,” explains Miller.
An earth sign that loves information, Tauruses are result-driven, meaning they aren’t afraid to put in the extra time and effort to get the details they need to feel confident about making a decision. The same goes for their beauty routines: They like knowing what they’re putting on their skin, which is why they should stick to clean products like Fresh’s Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment ($24) and Soy Face Cleanser ($38).
Beauty Mantra: “Dig deeper,” says Miller. “You’ll like what you find in certain products and will become knowledgeable in ingredients that make you excited.”
Geminis are an air sign that loves getting the scoop first. They’re invested in getting their hands on the freshest (and coolest) items, and they’ve been known to rip pages out of magazines to take with them to a store. To feel fresh every day, Geminis should stick to Fresh’s Hesperides Grapefruit Eau De Parfum ($90) and Rose Face Mask ($62).
Beauty Mantra: “Never lose your curiosity or ability to try new things,” Miller says. “There’s nothing wrong with wanting the latest and greatest in beauty.”
A water sign, Cancers are extremely caring for anything and everything, and that extends to their skin as well. It’s worth noting that within the zodiac, Cancers are known to have the most beautiful skin (lucky you!). But it doesn’t come easy: They eat clean and healthy, and constantly look for unique natural ingredients that’ll make them feel good from the inside out. Keep things glowing with Fresh’s Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner ($44) and Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask ($62).
Beauty Mantra: “Protect that beautiful skin with sunscreen!” Miller says. “It’s the most important thing to apply before you leave the house.”
Another fire sign that’s truly confident, Leos love being noticed and aren’t shy about being photographed. In fact, they love taking pictures (selfies included!), and are always on the hunt to find the products that’ll make them look their best IRL and in snaps. It all starts with skincare, obviously, including Fresh’s Sugar Lip Polish ($24) and Black Tea Firming Corset Cream ($95).
Beauty Mantra: “Work with a makeup artist to find products that’ll look good on you in photos; you don’t want to wear anything that’ll distract from you,” explains Miller.
Earth-sign Virgos are incredibly practical and probably the most misunderstood zodiac sign. They tend to direct their energy into health, fitness, and wellness, and they do tons of research to understand the ingredients they’re using on their skin. Two products they can use without caution are Fresh’s Hesperides Grapefruit Body Lotion ($23) and Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask ($58).
Beauty Mantra: “Being cognizant of what you eat and put on topically will help maintain your youthful glow,” says Miller.
Librans are air signs, and they’re arbiters of taste. Before they make any decision or decide if something is “in,” they want all the facts and someone to bounce ideas off of. They just like having a sounding board to solidify decisions they’re trying to make (for example, which skincare products they should use). Two items they can add to their lineups with confidence? Fresh’s Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream ($40) and Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask ($92)
Beauty Mantra: “If you see someone who looks great, don’t be afraid to ask them what products they’re using,” Miller says. “Sometimes that’s all you need to try something new.”
Scorpios are water signs that are private yet deeply emotional people who would do anything for someone in need—particularly their S.O. They tend to wear a lot of black, which gives them good reason to play up their makeup. But makeup only looks good if you have a clear base; use Fresh’s Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream ($45) and Black Tea Age-Delay Firming Serum ($98) to help get there.
Beauty Mantra: “Don’t be embarrassed that you want to look sexy,” Miller advises. “You’re good at applying makeup, and you should take your time getting ready.”
Fire-sign Sagittarians are known to direct their energy in teaching. While they’re able to consume a lot of information, they also enjoy sharing that knowledge with others—especially when it comes to skincare and the importance of changing up your routine for different seasons and climates. Vanity staples are important too, though, and should include things like Fresh’s Sugar Caramel Hydrating Lip Balm ($18) and Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence ($68).
Beauty Mantra: “You’re a busy bee who’s constantly on the go, so you should stick to products that are quick and easy to use,” says Miller.
An earth sign that’s all about practicality, Capricorns love money and are smart about saving—but they won't say no to the new Gucci loafer. Capricorns appreciate a casual shopping spree, and are willing to drop cash on things they’ve researched and know are worth the investment, which extends to skincare. On that front, Capricorns love treating themselves to classic, luxurious products that are proven to work, like Fresh’s Sugar Face Polish ($62) and Rose Floral Toner ($40).
Beauty Mantra: “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater,” Miller advises. “Instead, stick to classic products that stand the test of time and, you know, work.”
If there's one thing we know about Aquarians is that they can't be swayed by public opinion. They need time to think through big decisions and come to their own conclusions. Because Aquarians are all about looking forward and trying new things, we recommend trying new products formulated with the latest and greatest ingredients that work better together, like Fresh’s Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum ($59) and Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream ($42).
Beauty Mantra: “Keep your eye on new technology in skincare to get the greatest benefits now,” says Miller.
Guided by their status as a water sign, artistic Pisceans are willing to go the distance for anyone—even total strangers. They’re quite imaginative and willing to experiment with new things, which is definitely a plus in the beauty world. Keep your skincare routine exciting with Fresh’s Crème Ancienne Soft Cream ($290) and Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Concentrate ($68).
Beauty Mantra: “Use your imagination, and have fun experimenting with both makeup and skincare,” explains Miller.
