Amiable Aries has a knack for making her surroundings light and happy. Nobody can keep a bad mood going when she’s around! Summer sun can wilt even the perkiest flower, though, so she’s got to stay a step ahead of the heat. When her natural breeziness fades to a waft, she kicks her Chillout® Personal Fan into gear. This compact, portable 10” mini tower fan is easy to operate, fits just about anywhere and comes in four bright colors that do as much for her mood as its two speeds do for her temperature! Keep your personal space frosty at Target stores and www.Target.com.

Easygoing Taurus likes to keep her style simple. One of her favorite things about summer is that frizz-inducing heat and humidity give her the perfect excuse to put away her styling tools and let her hair go au naturel. Too much naturel can turn simple into scary, though, so her go-to taming product is Beach Trippin’ Salt-Infusion Waving Spray from Got2b®. A quick spritz of this light, moisturizing (and crunch-free) elixir gives her tresses enough tousled texture, volume and piecey waves to make a mermaid blush! Give your mane a beachy boost at major beauty retailers nationwide.

Energetic Gemini is always on the move, flinging herself from work to play and back again. All that flinging keeps life interesting, but doesn’t leave much time for taking care of herself. Every product in her bathroom has to be as quick and hard-working as she is. Nair’s Brazilian Spa Clay collection has the hair removal department covered! Infused with mango butter, acai berry and mineral-rich clay, this decadent team of creams, wax strips and roll-on wax delivers long-lasting smoothness and Shower Power™ technology that keeps it all right where she puts it, even underwater. Banish your fuzz the Brazilian way at your nearest drugstore or other major beauty retailer.

Nurturing Cancer is the rock of her social circle. Everybody turns to her when they need a sympathetic ear and a shoulder to cry on. She wouldn’t have it any other way, but sometimes the weight of all her friends’ troubles can wear a girl down. Even a rock needs a comfy place to rest, and her Chillow® cooling pillow insert makes sure she wakes up refreshed. Not only does it keep her pillow customizably cool and soft, it absorbs her excess body heat and releases it into the air, rendering achy neck muscles and night sweats extinct!

Graceful Libra is a relationship genius, making friends and bewitching admirers everywhere she goes. Her enthusiastic nature and genuine interest in others 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 lather-up seems like too much work. Curl Recovery™ Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil from Ouidad fits her low maintenance criteria perfectly. One quick massage with this foaming, water-activated cleanser with CR-4 Repair Complex™ gently removes dirt and build-up while restoring essential moisture to her hair, leaving it looking and smelling fabulous. Render your tresses impressive at Ulta stores, Beauty.com and www.ouidad.com.

Spirited Scorpio is at her best when she’s leading the charge up a hill to victoryhttp://www.sephora.com/ … or the girls down the street to happy hour. Leading anybody anywhere comes naturally, and she takes her role as a natural shepherd very seriously.

Its formula - a light, ultra-hydrating, protein-packed Greek yoghurt concentrate – is as bold and effective as she is. With her ethereal glow firmly in place, her devotees will follow her anywhere!

Playful Sagittarius is all about variety. From food to fashion, she just doesn’t see the point to sticking with one thing when the world offers so many choices!
