You might think sun signs and beauty regimes have no connection, but that’s not true. Practicing certain daily skincare and self-care rituals before bed time, based on what the stars tell us, can vastly improve your sleep, and by extension, skin, hair, and overall beauty. This is the night routine your zodiac sign should adopt for a beautiful you, inside and out, according to astrology.
Aries: Drinking a cup of chamomile tea

Aries, as the kids say, “has no chill.” This sign is always hyperactive and is famous for being the zodiac’s “demanding, red-faced, and angry infant.” A soothing mug of calming chamomile helps lull them to sleep, ensuring better skin and a tranquil mind, and is also a good way to hydrate after a long day of stress.
Taurus: Avoiding sugary snacks before bedtime

After Aries the infant comes Taurus the baby, one of the best chefs of the zodiac, with an affinity for sweets and junk food. More than their skin routine, their issue lies in their indulgent nature. Once the habit of nibbling on snacks right before sleeping goes, their skin is sure to glow, free from the acne and patchiness we know as “sugar face.”
Gemini: Try a waterless routine that you actually end up doing
It’s ideal to wash your face at night, but most Geminis barely remove their makeup. So, keeping their beauty goals realistic is the only way to ensure they actually stick to doing the basics. Keeping a set of cleansing wipes and face lotion next to the bed can help this sign get their face cleaned and hydrated, at least.
Cancer: Taking a warm bath

Water sign Cancer is a water baby in every way, be it starting the day with a cold shower, or ending it with a warm bath. Being cocooned in the warmth from a hot shower helps melt their worries and fears away, and feels like a comforting hug to them, helping them feel relaxed enough to sleep.
Leo: Religiously removing their makeup
Leo loves looking good, and despite their obsession with skin rituals, hates removing a good makeup look. They would rather be in bed and laze than remove their kajal properly, let alone do a comprehensive skin routine. Everything would change for this sign if they just cleaned the pancake off their face before bedtime!
Virgo: Doing an eye mask to combat dark circles

Virgo loves being online all the time, keeping up with gossip and what everyone is up to. However, staring at social media all day can take a toll on your under-eye area. Doing a soothing eye mask before hitting the sheets can help this sign wake up fresh and bright-eyed– literally.
Libra: Using fragrance-free products in their skincare
Libra is too obsessed with pretty things which smell nice to actually take the efficacy of their products into consideration outside the fragrance or packaging. Once this Venus-ruled sign’s shallow approach to beauty is undone and they actually choose products with skin-safe ingredients, it’s over for the rest of us!
Scorpio: Having sex

Scorpio is not only a hypersexual sign always associated with boinking, but its children are prone to being night-owls. Not only does sex tire out this sign enough that they doze off to get some beauty sleep, but all the pent-up testosterone wreaking havoc on their skin is dissipated. What’s better than that post-coital glow?
Sagittarius: Going for the 7-step K-beauty regime

Sagittarius sees sleep as a stupid waste of time. But if this sign were to do extensive skin rituals– such as those made popular by Korean beauty– which are useless without sleep and not just a preparatory pre-bedtime practice, their mind would be at ease with the idea of catching a few Z’s. Finally, sleep is of some use. Bonus? Great skin, thanks to all the time they’ll spend massaging in those nourishing products!
Capricorn: Meditating for an inner glow

Not many people realise that the collected and cool Capricorn is actually a stress-ball who is anxious about the future, and that results in premature skin-ageing for this sign. While topical anti-skin ageing products can help, it’s best to try and treat the problem from within by meditating. It’s definitely better than smoking a cigarette before bed, isn’t it?
Aquarius: Toning down the experimentation with new skincare

Aquarius isn’t just the resident fashionista of the zodiac, but also a sign which is experimental with regards to beauty. But, using EVERY new product you buy on a whim never did anyone good. So, giving your skin a break from the wild adventure of adjusting to the most newly-launched beauty products is only going to help it.
Pisces: Using a foot cream and foot massager

Each sign rules a body part, and Pisces rules the feet. This sign either has feet which feel cold, foot aches, or some sort of issue with feet. Using a foot cream protects their vulnerable trotters, and the massaging the feet helps calm this sensitive sign overall, making for better sleep. Do yourself a favour, and practice reflexology on yourself!
