Magnetic Aries is acutely aware that, wherever she goes, all eyes are usually on her. As thrilling as this is, it’s also a bit intimidating. Every detail of her appearance must have special attention, starting with her smile. The Rembrandt® Deeply White Collection easily keeps her teeth healthy and sparkling! Endorsed by top celebrity stylist Mary Alice Stephenson (who has buffed Drew Barrymore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Heidi Klum and a bevy of other red carpet captivators to gleaming perfection), the collection includes peroxide-enhanced toothpaste and mouthwash as well a two-hour whitening kit for those times when her public can’t wait. Make your smile shimmer at www.rembrandt.com .

Dreamy Taurus loves the idea of physical fitness. She fantasizes about running marathons, bench pressing Dwayne Johnson and doing it all in a size two bikini. Sadly, her tendency to fill every moment with obligations combines with her love of lounging to create a perfect storm of procrastination.

Created by California-based personal trainer Estelle Underwood, it’s a deceptively simple, lightweight resistance band with Estelle’s full body strength training workout printed on it in clear, easy to follow illustrations.

Complex Cancer is a perpetual cauldron of conflicting emotions. No matter how great she feels, there’s always a nagging feeling that happiness is temporary. The upside: when she’s down in the dumps, she knows it won’t last long. To keep herself bright (or to hasten her return to it), she gets out of her own head by taking long, soothing baths with luxurious, invigorating products. Strange Invisible Perfumes Body Wash and Lotion is the perfect lavender and vetiver scented, organic, handcrafted pair to wash away the darkness and keep the light soft and inviting.
