Self-care looks different for everyone. While a sheet mask can be the ultimate form of bliss for one person, spending time reading in a park may be someone else’s go-to. Though it takes varied forms, self-care is something we should all be incorporating into our lives. If you don’t know where to start, and you happen to be an astrology lover, the stars can give you some guidance.
According to astrologer Lisa Stardust, each zodiac sign has a specific set of character traits that will lend itself to preferred forms of relaxation. For example, if you’re a Pisces, you may need a swim in the ocean to feel at peace, while if you're a Gemini, you might not feel calm unless you're chatting with friends. Similarly, the self-care products you find most appealing can also be attributed to your zodiac sign. So if you’re looking for some serious R&R but don't know how to make it happen, the list below is full of astrologically-ordained self-care products meant for each sign.
When you feel stressed or overwhelmed, Aries, your world-famous temper can flare up. That’s why it’s important to find a product that will keep you cool. “Aries is known to be temperamental and hotheaded, so a head massager is ideal to calm their passionate nature,” Stardust says. You might be a smidge freaked out by multi-pronged, pointy devices, so we highly recommend this scalp massaging shampoo brush from Vitagoods that will give your head a good rub while keeping it clean.

Taurus, you like to opt for the classics, as self-care to you means treating yourself. “A face mask is the way to go for Taurus to chill out, as their Venusian vibes will be thrilled to get some TLC,” Stardust says. Why have one when you can have twelve different options, all incredibly moisturizing and freshly scented?
When you have a bad day, Gemini, you probably blow up all your friends’ phones to air out your grievances. Just remember to take care of your fingers. “Hand lotion for chatty Gemini to moisten up their fingers after texting and sending selfies to their friends" is the perfect self-care remedy, Stardust says. We’ve tried the Shea Better hand cream from eos, and our parched winter hands were grateful.

For the Venus-oriented sign of the zodiac, we recommend a luxurious product that incorporates the crystal of love. “A rose quartz face roller will not only strengthen facial tissues, but it will also restore, revive, and destress the skin,” Stardust says.

According to Stardust, you need something that will make you feel warm and toasty, while incorporating your element, water. “A heated water bottle is ideal,” Stardust says. Fill up this one from All one tech with some water fresh out of the kettle, pop the sweater on it, and stick it under your bed for all the coziness.
