August Skin-Scopes: The Korean Skin Care Products You Need This Month Based On Your Zodiac Sign

What skin care product do you absolutely need this month? For our Skin-scope, we consulted the stars. Read on to find out what product to add to your routine, according to your astrological sign and August horoscope.

Aries (March 21—April 20)

Aries, August is the month for you to slow down and take it all in. Your typically fast-paced, vibrant energy needs a minute to recharge, and as your Mars moves into Virgo, make sure to take the time you need to catch up with your own speed. Use this time of reflection and tranquility to reflect and to manifest; stop and smell the roses, let your creative side take charge, explore new things, and spend some time thinking about what your goals are and what you will do to reach them. Spend your energy on things that make you happy, and while you take a few weeks to vacay from your usual, high-energy personality, keep everything cool and in balance with the perfect toner for your skin type.

For oily skin types, try Mamonde Pore Clean Toner

For dry skin types, try Some by Mi AHA-BHA-PHA 30Days Miracle Toner

For combination skin types, try Benton Aloe BHA Skin Toner

For sensitive skin types, try Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner

For normal skin types, try Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner

Taurus (April 20—May 21)

Look out, Taurus! August will be a month of passions, love, and romance for you. Between your busy-body personality and your desire for self control, a summer fling might weasel it’s way into your life—and although it may be unexpected, let it take its course and see what happens. You will have a long to-do list this month and be constantly occupied, but your productiveness will be assisted by your lightweight, happy spirit through these next four weeks. While you accomplish things and are romanced and free-spirited, enjoy the Goodal Dewy Flower Infused Facial Mist for midday pick-me-ups in between the business of your love life, social life, and professional life.

Gemini (May 21—June 21)

Gemini, we know you aren’t fond of change, which is why August might be a difficult time for you. Your social life will feel like an emotional roller coaster during these next four weeks, and you may struggle to find a balance between your work, social life, family, and finances. But even though August may seem overwhelming, your perseverance will assist you this month and let you accomplish whatever it is you set your mind to, so if there’s something you’ve been wanting, don’t feel like August is the wrong time for you to manifest it. Just remember the three Cs to make this month as easy for you as possible: communication, courage, and cleansing! That’s right, Gemini; with this messy month ahead, trust me, you’ll need the right oil cleanser to keep you from feeling weighed down.

For dry skin types, try Solved Skincare Coconut Oil Cleansing Pads

Cancer (June 21—July 22)

Alas, Cancer season has come to a close, but you’ll still continue to prosper during Leo season! Now that you’ve turned a year older, your personal growth and determination will show itself in all areas of your life. Turning over a new leaf will lead to major opportunities and new roads for you this month, so don’t be afraid to branch out and see what the world has to offer you. This is a great time for you to clean up your personal life and rid yourself of negative energy, whether that means getting your financial affairs in order or solidifying a new friendship. As you continue to grow and learn in August, remember to take care of the things that are bothering you with the Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch, because a clean slate and a clean face are the best ways to start the next chapter of your life, right?

Leo (July 22—August 22)

Buckle up, Leo, because August brings you a month of change. As you turn another year older (happy birthday, August Leos!) the lessons you learn as a result of rapid evolution in your life will stick with you. But remember that this is YOUR month—when it comes to fun, freedom, and energy, you’ve got it all. Around the Leo New Moon in mid-August, ask yourself: what have I learned this past year, and what do I want to achieve this year? Answering these questions during a period of instability and happiness will make you more determined than ever to achieve whatever it is you want. But while you’re unwrapping birthday gifts and chasing what you want, remember to give your skin what it wants, too, by using the perfect serum to ensure you look as glowy and radiant as you feel.

For dry skin types, try d’Alba White Truffle Intensive Ampoule

For combination skin types, try Dewytree Ultra Vitalizing Snail Serum

Virgo (August 22—September 22)

Known for their sweetness and charisma, Virgos will be the social butterflies of August, finally coming out of their shells to solidify relationships and bring a lightheartedness to the air. As natural charmers, it’s time for you to grow closer to those who are important to you in life while metaphorically burning sage over anything bringing you toxicity and discomfort. Pursue new hobbies and opportunities with your friends and loved ones by your side, and aim to secure your newfound sense of extroversion throughout September, too, because we’re willing to bet you’ll like the way it navigates you through August. So as you explore the possibilities that have always been open to you, go in with a clear mind, and though your instinct might be to keep your heart protected, remind yourself it’s okay to be open and vulnerable to new things. But whatever you do, make sure your skin is protected with the right SPF, like the Neogen Day-Light SPF!

Libra (September 22—October 22)

Libra, August is the time for you to reflect on your connections. Contemplation will be an old friend by the end of this month, as you spend these next few weeks exploring—inadvertently or not—the answers to some questions. Are you engaging in meaningful conversation from those around you? Do the people, places, and activities you surround yourself with bring you joy? Are you putting an energy out into the universe that you would also want to receive? Above all else, strive to entertain the possibilities of new endeavors and seek to understand how to improve upon old ones. For you, August is all about learning to better yourself; as you soak it all in to reflect, soak up the ingredients that will make your skin one less thing to worry about with the right sheet mask this month.

Scorpio (October 22—November 21)

Your professional destiny will finally begin to reveal itself and your hard work will pay off, Scorpio. Financial fortune and career acceleration are definitely in store for you this month, and it’s time to reap the rewards of what you’ve spent years sowing. But as advancements occur and developments take place for the better, remember to keep things in balance; don’t let professional achievements condemn your public image or narrow your social circle, and keep pinching your pockets even as financial fortune comes your way! Really, August is all about being practical for you: how will you react in the face of success, how will you behave in the eyes of your peers and underlings, and, of course, how will you manage your skin while you manage everything else in your busy life too? Don’t worry, Scorpio, because we’ve got the perfect, easy-to-use multiuse product for you. So as you refine your finances and job, refine your face, too, with Saturday Skin’s Rub-A-Dub Refining Peel Gel, the cherry on top for a month of accomplishments for you.

Sagittarius (November 21—December 21)

Creativity is your buzzword this month, dear archer. Whether it be inspiration from travels, education, or observations of the world around you, your creative streak and desire to build will thrive this month. Don’t hold anything back, and don’t let yourself be distracted by things that will always be around. Create while you can, while you have the time and inspiration—draw, write, play music, paint, whatever it is. But remember to divert some of your energy to your profession and your health, too, so you don’t fall behind in work and mental/physical health matters. And while you let your creative side soar this month and take care of your health, take care of your skin by soothing it with the perfect facial moisturizer formulated for your skin type.

Capricorn (December 21—January 20)

As Venus enters your horizon, your relationships might face some changes this month, Capricorn. Whether they change for better or for worse will be up to you—in these weeks, it’s essential that you don’t close yourself off and that you allow yourself to be sensitive and let people in. Allow your gooey side to be shown to more people, and you just might like what you get in return. Relationships could be tested, weakened, or built in all aspects; hold your friends close, plan more date nights for your significant other, and be wary of engaging in any situation which could put strain on a relationship, like borrowing money from a friend or entering into business with family. Play it cool in August, Capricorn, and keep yourself refreshed with a cool sleeping mask like the Thank You Farmer Back To Relax Soothing Gel Mask so you’re ready to conquer each day as it comes.

Aquarius (January 20—February 19)

Indecisive Aquarius, it seems that August will be a month of decision making for you as the Sun in Leo moves through your 7th house. It’s time to push for what YOU want, decide what your goals are and create a series of objectives to obtain them. It might feel like you’re being pulled every which way, so remind yourself every once in a while to keep a cool head and focus on getting what you want. It may seem easy to get overwhelmed this month, so be sure to surround yourself with things that bring you joy, whether it’s people, hobbies, snacks, or activities. Your authenticity won’t waver and you’ll come out stronger, and if you play your cards right with the Rovectin Skin Essentials Barrier Repair Face Oil, so will your skin. 

Pisces (February 19—March 21)

Persevering Pisces, August brings with it a basket of opportunities and ideas for you. This month, you’ll really notice the ways in which your relationships with others function, what keeps you connected and how you can build upon that foundation. Things are fast-paced this month, so as you notice your relationship ties, try to take some time for yourself too—between that, your urge to improve your health, your desire for an overall better lifestyle, and your apparent determination in your work, the end of the month will show you the rewards you struggled for and make it all worth it. It may be easy to lose sight of certain things in the whirlwind, which is why in August, having the perfect easy, lightweight essence to keep your skin fresh and smooth will take care of your skin worries.
