Beautyscopes: November 2020

It’s crazy to think it’s already November, this year has seemed like the longest but also shortest. This month, we kick off the holiday season and with it a whole new set of must have products. Read along for what the stars have in store for you!

Aries, this month is all about going with the flow and learning to not sweat the small stuff. Work will be demanding this month and it’ll be easy to fall into a gossipy situation, learn to restrain from getting involved. Focus on yourself and what tasks you have and leave all the extra fluff out of it.

Sail smoothly through November with Herbivore’s Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum. This unique jelly-like water-based serum is safe for even the most sensitive skin types. Natural botanicals like Babchi, Turmeric, Holy Basil, Basil, and Eggplant Extracts work to erase fine lines and wrinkles. Apply after a long day and if you’re feeling extra, apply with your favorite face roller!

We could all use a little pick me up sometimes, even actress Kristen Bell, which is why she founded her company Happy Dance.

Every day is a new day and Happy Dance is there to help you through the tough ones.

Cool fall temps are great for getting outside without the heat but the change in the air can wreak havoc on your skin and lips. Glossier’s new Fig scent in their coveted Balm Dot Com Universal Skin Salve is our new go to. This sweet but not in a summery way scent is delicious and the barely there tint adds just the right amount of color and moisture to our lips. We also love dabbing what’s left over on our knuckles to keep them from drying out as well.
