Active Aries loves this time of year because she can have as much fun as she did all summer, without breaking a sweat (unless she intends to). The cooler weather does have one drawback, though: less moisture in the air means less moisture in her skin, and her busy little hands suffer most of all. To keep them soft and comfy, she always carries AVEDA Hand Relief™. Packed with hydrating, plant-derived emollients, humectants, exfoliating fruit acids and antioxidants, this intensive moisture therapy nourishes her parched skin and arms it against age-inducing dryness! Keep your skin smiling at Aveda Experience Centers, participating salons and at www.aveda.com.

During the month of October, Aveda is featuring a special Pink Ribbon Hand Relief™ to promote breast cancer awareness and will donate $4.00 of the purchase price to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Optimistic Taurus loves to look as radiant as she feels. As the temperature begins to drop, it gets harder and harder to keep her skin bright, especially since she doesn’t have the patience or attention span to keep up a complicated regimen for more than a few days! Luckily, she’s got Soap & Glory’s The Fab Pore intensive-action, pore-refining facial peel to turn to. Combining salicylic acid, kaolin, a pore-tightening mushroom extract and vitamins E and C, all this creamy concoction asks of her is a few minutes, a few times per week. The result: fabulosity that can be seen from space! Give some astronauts a thrill at Sephora and www.sephora.com.

Adaptable Gemini loves change, so the arrival of a new season gives her a major energy boost. While filling her closet with cozy sweaters and thermal undies, though, she does sometimes feel a twinge of regret that summer’s beach days are over and her beloved golden glow will soon be a memory. That’s when her mind kicks into high solution-seeking gear. Golden glows aren’t the sun’s sole domain! With Hollywood Tans’ Millionaire Mist Bronzing Tanning Spray she can simply mist her way to a smooth, natural-looking tan. The hemp seed and aloe vera-drenched formula contains a cosmetic bronzer for instant color and DHA self-bronzer to extend that “just off the beach” look and keep her looking like a solar goddess … even in her long johns! Keep your color right where it belongs at www.HollywoodTans.com.

Emotional Cancer misses each season as it passes and finds herself mourning its loss while everybody else is busy enjoying the new time of year. She wants to be positive and welcome fall, but how can she while reminders of summer are all around the house? The solution is simple: scrub, scrub, scrub! Clean, polish, pack away the old to make way for the new. Step One: slip on a pair of Clean Ones® Pure Comfort Latex Free Gloves. Latex free, contoured to fit perfectly and lined for ultra-absorbency, they’re protective and PINK! De-dirt your domicile in style at retailers nationwide or peruse their entire line of haute hand helpers at www.cleanones.com. Through the end of October, Clean Ones will donate 10% of the retail price for each product sold to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Classy Leo strives for balance of form and function in all areas of her life. Even the water bottle she totes on her early morning nature walks must be both highly effective and fabulously elegant. The S’Well 500ml/17oz reusable bottle is BPA-free and made of food grade stainless steel, with a tapered neck that’s wide enough for ice cubes, keeping liquids as cold or hot as she wants them to be. It’s also super sleek and available in seven gorgeous colors! Sip your way to www.swellbottle.com and choose your own swoon-worthy vessel. 10% of all profits are donated to WaterAid, enabling countries to provide fresh drinking water to millions of people.

Analytical Virgo takes every aspect of a situation into consideration, even when it’s as seemingly routine as preparing for a new season. From the potential effects of comfort food on her waistline to the impact of earlier sunsets on her evening commute, every angle is considered and a plan of action formed. To keep her privates fresh and healthy as the layers of stifling clothing pile on, her discreet, deceptively simple weapons are BOX Intimate Wipes. Natural, biodegradable, pH balanced and lightly scented only with crushed rose petals, these individually packaged wipes can go wherever she does to keep her feeling naturally gorgeous! Keep your pH beautifully balanced at www.BoxIntimates.com.

Graceful Libra is a relationship genius, making friends and bewitching admirers everywhere she goes. Her enthusiastic nature and genuine interest in other people’s lives and thoughts add to her beauty, but she’s always making sure that the outside matches the inside! This can be tricky, since anything involving more than a quick spray or wipe seems like too much work. Luckily, Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Dry Shampoo fits her low maintenance criteria perfectly. One spritz with this residue-free aerosol elixir absorbs scalp oil, neutralizes product buildup, creates gorgeous body and leaves her less-than-pristine hair looking and smelling fabulous. Simplify your gorgeousness at www.philipb.com.

Resourceful Scorpio loves to tackle projects head on with the best ammunition available. As far as she’s concerned, anything less is a waste of time and effort! As dropping temperatures begin to threaten her pristine skin, she arms her skin care tank with the DNA EGF Renewal collection from Dr. Ronald L. Moy, MD. Foaming Cleanser uses a unique amino acid glycolic complex to gently exfoliate her skin, prepping it for Intensive Renewal day and nighttime lotion. With a liposome delivery system that targets skin’s DNA repair processes, it knocks fine lines and wrinkles silly. While they’re down, she hits them with Night Renewal to boost youthful cell turnover FTW!!!! Draw your battle lines at www.dnaegfrenewal.com.

Optimistic Sagittarius sees the arrival of chilly weather not as the end of her beloved beach time, but as the perfect excuse to plan as many trips to tropical islands as she can squeeze into her schedule! Of course, that means she’s got to keep up her bikini-ready routine, but that’s easy with Schick© Quattro for Women© TrimStyle™. An ingenious razor/bikini trimmer combination, it lets her shave, trim and keep herself smooth and confident with the flip of a handle. Find out where to grab your own best beach buddy at www.quattroforwomen.com.

Disciplined Capricorn is a powerhouse of self-control. No matter what time of year, she’ll be damned if there’s a hair out of place or a dimple on a thigh! Now that Daisy Duke season is over she can relax a bit, but never too much. One less workout (and one more cocktail) a week is just enough to feel like a reward, but she’ll make sure it doesn’t show by slathering Melvita Algascience Contouring Serum on every vulnerable inch from her waist to her knees. Working in harmony with her body’s natural biological rhythm, this non-sticky formula uses pink coralline, brown fucus and red palmaria seaweed to promote fat burning by day and reduce fat storage at night. With her already awesome skin 78% firmer, that extra workout might just disappear forever! Give your bumps the boot at www.usa.melvita.com.

Earthy Aquarius loves this time of year. Apple picking, leaping into piles of vibrantly colored leaves, cuddling up in cozy sweaters … everything about fall makes her feel like a kid again. Sadly, her skin doesn’t share that sentiment as the chilly air threatens to dry it out and send her the other way! As long as she’s got Kiss My Face Pure Olive Oil Soap, though, she’s covered. Made with 86% pure olive oil, it cleanses and softens even the most sensitive skin without a harsh chemical, animal byproduct or artificial colorant to be found. Her skin stays baby soft and ready for anything the elements toss at it! Pick up your own Mediterranean moisture miracle at Whole Foods or www.kissmyface.com.

Sensitive Pisces’ state of mind is highly influenced by her surroundings. As the days get shorter and the weather chills, she needs all the help she can get to keep her outlook sunny! Even beauty products are called to action, and The Organic Pharmacy’s Organic Glam Luminous Antioxidant Foundation is her key to emotional bliss! This sheer, light formula can be layered to create any degree of coverage while minerals correct imperfections to leave her looking and feeling fresh every day. Give yourself an inner and outer beauty boost at www.theorganicpharmacy.com.
