Beautyscopes: May 2021

Spring has sprung and life is starting to slowly get back to normal. Enjoy these 12 products that will elevate your beauty, skin and hair for weeks to come!

Things aren’t quite back to normal but with each day we are slowly inching towards it. This silver lining, albeit small, is what’s going to give you the power and motivation to conquer this month Aries. A simple but effective glass-half-full mentality will not only make your life better but those around you as well.

This past year has allowed us to embrace the skin we’re in. Not having to wear makeup daily has allowed for our complexion to breathe and reset. As we head back into normalcy rather than opting for a full coverage foundation, look for a product that enhances your natural beauty. Fenty Beauty’s Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint is the newest product to come from Rihanna’s brand. The fluid formula is buildable from sheer to medium coverage and blurs imperfections for skin that is natural but flawless.

Working from home has become a way of life for most of us now. Most of us have learned to manage our time better and create a daily routine. As we continue to move towards healthier times, we may feel new stress about what this means for our work/life balance. Try to take things one day at a time this month and don’t let the unknown take away lessen the quality of your hard work.

Multi-tasking is key when it comes to working from home. In the past year most of us have become pros at taking a meeting during our midday workout while also washing a load of laundry. Much like our new work/life balance, Kaja’s new Play Bento Cream Bronzer, Powder     Blush and Highlighter Trio is a triple threat. Highly pigmented and buttery soft, this trio of products is a must have this spring!

Get outside this month, Gemini. Soak up the springtime sunshine. Allow for mother nature to provide you with inspiration. Try looking at things with a new perspective and be open to trying something new.

Mother Nature provides us with more than just what’s outside. The brand Farmacy looks to mother nature to provide them with the ingredients to formulate their products. Their newest addition the Filling Good Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Serum was created to plump skin back to looking young, refreshed and radiant. The unique formula not only plumps fine lines and wrinkles but it gently micro-needles the skin to allow the key ingredients to effectively penetrate the skin.

Clean and clear are the two buzzwords that should be circling around in your head this month, Cancer. There is no better feeling than a fresh and clean slate. Take time to declutter everything in your life, from your overwhelming inbox to your overfilled closet.

Warmer weather means you can take your at home workouts outside. Whether you jog, cycle, walk or skip rope there’s no reason to confine yourself to your basement to get in a solid sweat session. If you’re not a big workout fan, consider a daily outdoor walk. Not only is this a heart healthy habit but sometimes even just 15 minutes away from your computer can do wonders for your mental state!

With your uptick in activity this month, keep things smelling fresh with Dove’s 0% Aluminum Deodorant. While the product isn’t new, it’s packaging sure is! Not only will you smell fresh but switching to their new refillable containers is a major bonus to the environment. Switch between the 3 different scents if you’re one who likes to mix it up, our favorite for spring is the Cucumber and Green Tea formula. Natural deodorants might have a stigma of not being as powerful as their antiperspirant counterpart but let us reassure you that this formula will have you thinking twice on that assumption!

Figuring out a product lineup and learning what your skin wants and needs is like finding the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. We are all unique and different so being able to provide your skin with the nutrients it needs is a major accomplishment, that being said, sometimes even with a rock-solid routine you might find your skin wishing for a little something more. Youth to the People’s Superclay Purify + Clear Power Mask with Niacinamide is a great addition to mix into your routine. Apply the mask when your regular routine doesn’t cut it and you want to shrink pores and even your skin-tone.
