Loyal Aries has a simple philosophy: when a product works for her, she sticks with it forever. This keeps shopping trips quick and easy! When it comes to skin care, though, she’s beginning to need a little something extra. Fine lines, discoloration and sagging can outwit even the most well-intentioned moisturizer, so it’s time to add MitoQ® Anti-Aging Serum to the mix. Hypoallergenic and fragrance free, this antioxidant-packed serum teams up with her beauty staples to boost youthful collagen and elastin production. She (and you) can find a lifetime supply of satiny smoothness at www.mitoq.com.

Classy Taurus is a true lady at heart. Polite, polished and proper, she sometimes seems to belong in another era. This is the one she’s landed in, though, and remembering that requires an occasional shock to her neatly ordered system. Since Pantone has declared Radiant Orchid the Color of the Year, how better to keep her in the now than to add a splash of it to her prim makeup routine? Shisedio Luminizing Eye Color is silky smooth, long lasting and comes in so many orchid-like shades (and other gorgeous hues), she can choose her favorite or buy them all and really kick that beige to the curb! Amp up your irises at www.shiseido.com.

Impatient Gemini is only happy when she’s 100% ready to pounce on the next intriguing venture that crosses her path. Keeping her mind and body in great shape comes naturally, but her hair is another matter and winter, with its dry air and harsh temperatures, can be her nemesis! It’s time to add a powerful moisture boost to her hair care regime: Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer! Formulated with natural castor oil, olive oil, silicones, glycerin and glycol, this intensive pre-shampoo treatment locks nourishment right into her hair’s cuticles. The result: bouncy, silky smooth tresses that laugh in the face of dryness! Keep your mane amazing at www.philipkingsley.com.

Nurturing Cancer cherishes those close to her heart. She’s often so busy thinking of ways to keep them feeling nurtured and special, she forgets to take care of her own needs! To keep herself from falling completely off the radar, there’s always a collection of The Healthy Body Butters by Lavanila on her vanity. This softly scented (in four inviting, vanilla-based varieties), 100% pure blend of shea and cocoa butters pampers her skin with essential oils and antioxidants for long lasting hydration. There’s nothing like a daily dose of velvety smoothness to keep a girl in love with the world! Caress your senses at www.lavanila.com.

Adventurous Leo is always searching for new ways to glam up her life. From blood red lipstick to a different wig for each day of the week, she is a true artiste and her style is her canvas. She doesn’t mess with the fundamentals, though, so her eyebrows get only the best: a careful wax here, a light tweezing there and Brow Power® Waterproof Perfector from IT Cosmetics to keep them in line. This automatic 5-in-1 powder gel pencil softly tames and fills brows in while conditioning them with an arsenal of paraben and fragrance-free enhancers. The result: brows so pristine, she can surround them with glitz and stake her claim as the Classiest Diva in Town! Give yourself the gift of fabulosity at www.QVC.com, www.itcosmetics.com and ULTA stores.

Precise Virgo strives for maximum efficiency in every aspect of her life. Her schedule is far too busy to waste time, so she’s always looking for faster ways to take care of herself. Streamlining her morning routine involves single-serve coffee, pre-planned outfits and Naturally Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract Fresh Hydration Lotion Spray from St. Ives. A quick, all-over spritz as she leaps from the shower leaves her skin silky smooth and smelling like the tropical vacation she so desperately needs (although she’ll never admit it). Find your own swift skin and soul soother at your local drugstore or www.stives.com.

Easygoing Libra is a people magnet. She can walk into a coffee shop and walk out with three new best friends! She’s already got plenty, but is always on the hunt for more. A buddy roster that big means her social calendar is stuffed to the gills, so every moment saved while prepping for fun can be spent actually having some. Miracle Skin Transformer Lip Rewind Peptide Lip Treatment combines all of her lip-perfecting steps into one quickie! Packed with anti-aging and lip-filling peptides, this non-sticky wonder adds a hint of shimmery color as it boosts volume and moisture, protects against UVA/UVB sun damage and improves lip definition and shape. The result: a fresh, flawless pout that’s ready to mesmerize the masses. Perfect your pucker (and routine) at ULTA stores, www.ulta.com and www.miracleskintransformer.com. For each purchase of the delicate, perfectly pink shade called LOVE, $5 is donated to the Children’s Action Network.

Resourceful Scorpio is a highly analytical, problem solving dynamo. When she feels something can be improved, her laser focus turns to finding the optimal solution. To safely reduce pesky fine lines and wrinkles on her forehead and around her eyes, she needs the BIOBLISS™ Anti-Wrinkle Patch System. These easy-to-wear patches use micro-current infusion technology to gently saturate her skin with powerful peptides, vitamins and antioxidants. Just one 30-minute treatment leaves her skin rejuvenated, tighter and noticeably smoother. With regular weekly use, she’ll be carded buying lottery tickets until she’s 90! Ready for action at www.biobliss.com.

Intense Sagittarius spends her days laser-focused on mastering all aspects of her life. Career, relationships, hobbies … everything! The pursuit of perfection can be exhausting so, when she does carve out a few minutes of relaxation time, only seriously heavenly products make the cut. Natural Calm® Bath from Natural Vitality cleans gently with no chemicals or additives, nourishing her skin and soul with a detoxifying, intoxicating combination of magnesium and Redmond Sea Salt. Treat yourself to a revitalizing at-home spa experience at www.naturalvitality.com.

Ambitious Capricorn is a one woman band in most areas of her life. If she wants something done, she does it herself! Although satisfying, this philosophy doesn’t leave much time for skin care. She needs something simple, versatile and effective to keep her dermis dewy. Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil is her beauty product equal. Created from sustainably farmed olives, this scent-free anti-aging dynamo not only keeps her face smooth and silky, it hydrates everything from hair to hands! Streamline your softening routine at www.IndieLee.com.

Graceful Aquarius knows that people see her as captivatingly cool and poised in any situation. This is an image she has no intention of letting slip, so she’s always on the lookout for products to add to her protective arsenal. Her newest weapon: Collagen Peptide Serum from Sublime Beauty! Light and easily absorbed, it uses Matrixyl® to double production of wrinkle-busting collagen and soothing aloe to infuse moisture into even the most parched dermis. It’s a powerful line of defense against all threats to her fabulosity! Protect your assets at www.sublimebeautyshop.com.

Charming Pisces is at her social-butterfly best when everything about her is in place. Pretty clothing, perfect makeup and a fresh manicure all help to form her mystique. No detail is more important than her hair, though, which must be the picture of gleaming, bouncy perfection at all times! This can be a challenge in the dull, dry winter months, so she relies on the Organix Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil Collection. Each product is infused with a silkifying blend of rich keratin proteins to boost elasticity and argan oil to keep tresses twinkling. Keep your lustrous locks in line at your local drugstore or other major retailer.
