Aries, even though it's the second month of the year, February will actually give you the fresh start that you’ve been looking for. This month is all about trying new things, from hobbies to socializing there is always room for a little change.

Raise your hand if January’s indecisive weather wreaked havoc on your skin. From spring-like temps to brutal polar vortexes you may feel as if your skin will never feel normal again. Push all your other night creams aside and make room for Farmacy’s Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm with Echinacea Greenevy. A little goes a long way with this product, warm the balm in your palms and apply to freshly cleansed skin. The texture transforms from a balm to a highly moisturizing oil and when you wake in the morning there is no shiny residue, just a glowing, firm and highly moisturized complexion. Harsh winter weather doesn’t mean you have to suffer from a dry, lackluster complexion, Aries!
