July Skin-Scopes: The K-Beauty Products You Need in Your Arsenal Based on Your Zodiac Sign

What skin care product do you absolutely need this month? We consulted the stars. Read on to find out what product to add to your routine, according to your astrological sign and July horoscope.

Aries (March 21—April 20): Essence

Aries, July will be a powerful month for you. Confidence, assertion, resilience, energy, and intensity are your buzzwords for the upcoming weeks. This is going to be a busy, hectic month, but not necessarily in a daunting way; with your Mars back in high gear, you’ll be more productive than ever in your work and social life. Friendships will flourish for you in July, and you’ll move through your to-do list with ease and grace. As your Saturn moves into Leo, you’ll feel yourself being more creative, more inspired, more loving toward those around you (indeed, July will be a big romance month for you).

In a month paced as rapidly as July, it will be easy to overlook the little things and not find time to care for yourself. Don’t let your strong will get the best of you during July— go through even the finer details and take the time to absorb everything with the perfect essence for your skin type, allowing your skin to be as seamlessly smooth and flawless as the rest of your month. 

For oily skin types, try: Banila Co Hi Bye Clean Up Sebum Control Essence

For combination skin types, try: Dewytree Ultra Vitalizing Snail Essence Water

For normal skin types, try: Botanic Farm Rice Ferment First Essence

For dry skin types, try: Isntree Clear Skin 8% AHA Essence

For sensitive skin types, try: Rovectin Skin Essentials Activating Treatment Lotion

Taurus (April 20—May 21): Spot Treatment

For Taurus suns, knowledge is the name of the game this July. Solidifying relationships, pouring yourself into a creative outlet, reading new books, and writing your thoughts in a journal will favor your enlightened side this month. With your Venus in Leo, relaxing with family and friends will be the utmost joy you take away from this month—even if the unknown calls to you, sticking with what you know and a familiar routine will bring you the greatest pleasure. Financial opportunities will find their way into your circle, and you’ll feel your atmosphere contentedly buzzing with energy and love. Stability is key for you in July; unexpected pop-ups will damage your routine and your headspace, so keep the unwanted and untamed imperfections at bay with Dr. Oracle A-Thera Tea Tree Peeling Sticks to ensure your road is unburdened and your focus can remain on family, friends, and intellectual pursuits.

Gemini (May 21—June 21): Primer

Gemini, your values will be tested this month. What do you really want, and what are you doing to get it? Shift your thoughts from the material to the valuable these next few weeks—it’s time to question what brings joy to your life rather than what brings popularity. Your communications with others will significantly change and tumble with your Mercury being in Leo throughout July, but it’s up to you to decide whether your relations will take a turn for better or for worse. Beware of misunderstandings in the final week of July as Mercury enters retrograde; set a clear path for yourself with benchmarks to observe your progress in your social and personal life. Think twice about your actions and your words before you say them, and keep your eyes set on that big goal up ahead. Being clear and assertive about your intentions will get you closer to where you want to be this month, so as you lay the foundations toward your dream life, invest in a primer like Banila Co Prime Primer Matte to ensure that when it’s time to reap the rewards of your July actions, you’re all set and ready to go.

Cancer (June 21—July 22): Sheet Mask

With a prominent Saturn in your sign this month, July might be a bit tricky. The personal, social, and professional challenges you’ll face this month will no doubt be strenuous, but your easy spirit will persevere. Though you’ll find power and inspiration in your mental capacities and your thinking and creativity will flourish this month, you’ll find trouble with your spirituality and sense of self. Pressures in your career and love life will bring on urges to find relief, and as your Venus stays in Leo throughout July, you’ll crave solace in material possessions. It’s going to be a hard month for Cancers, so go ahead and indulge yourself—take it easy and treat yourself right with a Korean sheet mask that will let you destress and collect yourself.

For oily skin types, try Manefit Natural Gift Green Tea Pore Care Sheet Mask

For combination skin types, try Mediheal WHP Brightening and Hydrating Charcoal Mask

For normal skin types, try Cosrx Hydrogel Very Simple Pack

For dry skin types, try LEADERS Amino Moisture Mask

For sensitive skin types, try Klairs RIch Moist Soothing Tencel Sheet Mask

Leo (July 22—August 22): Sunscreen

Leo, your inner lion is going to roar this July. If you feel like you’ve been in a bit of a funk or a haze lately, fear not—you’re finally breaking free in July, and it’s back to your old vibrant, colorful self! There will be a lot of time to clear your mind this July, and ample opportunity for self-reflection. Communication comes easy to you this month, so take advantage of the opportunities that present themselves to get what you desire. Dive into your potential, and see what boundaries and limits you can push—you might surprise yourself with what you’re capable of. Make the most of your revived spirit by spending time with family and friends, trying new things, and exploring the great outdoors, but make sure you’re protected all throughout with the infallible Sun Project Light Essence sunscreen by Thank You Farmer, so you can carry yourself bravely and boldly under the July sun.

Virgo (August 22—September 22): Sleeping Mask

The month of July brings you solitude, reflection, and deliberation. Your spirit may feel heavy and your thoughts may be clouded during these weeks, as your Mercury is in Leo throughout July. You’ll find yourself reluctant to be in groups and participate in activities, and perhaps even feel as though your communications are not being productive. If you find yourself experiencing bouts of nostalgia and melancholy, remind yourself they are temporary; try to associate yourself in a positive climate to be reminded of the joys of personhood, embrace your solitude by letting yourself indulge in an overnight sleep mask to remind yourself that being withdrawn can have silver linings, and you can always make the most of your solitude.

Libra (September 22—October 22): Toner

July is all about who you are, Libras. Individuality is key—who are you as a person? How do you present yourself to the world? Your reputation and your interactions with others will be important in July, but don’t let the publicity get to your head. Remain grounded with the things you hold closest, and focus on your ambitions and goals without letting them burn you out. Your pursuits will be favored in July as your Venus is in Leo, so don’t be afraid to take leaps or make bold moves. With the successes coming your way, balance will be important—stay close to your roots and show appreciation to your family, friends, and the place you call home, but don’t be afraid to take steps toward what you crave. With all the responsibilities and projects coming you’re way, you’re going to want the right toner to ensure your pH levels and moisture are staying just as balanced as your values and ambitions.

Scorpio (October 22—November 21): Exfoliator

Your health and your work may be points of worry throughout July, as your Mars is in Aries, but in all other aspects, you’ll have ample room to grow and explore. July will be a transformative month for you as you continue to question the fundamentals of life; you’re searching for an intangible meaning, and it feeds your creative and intellectual output. Try something new; take a class, go somewhere, meet new people. Stay away from people and things that weigh you down, and encourage yourself to face the unknown, and then question it. All of this will bring you incrementally closer to discovering yourself and formulating a life you’re more than happy to live in. Focus on the unknown, on the good, on the things you’re happy with, and don’t be afraid to scrub away the bad and the inconsequential—not only in your social life, but in your skin care regime, too, with the right physical exfoliant. After all, blackheads never helped anyone in the process of self-discovery, right?

Sagittarius (November 21—December 21): Oil Cleanser

Sagittarius suns face an intensely productive and enlightening July. Seek out new experiences to balance your curiosity with your restless temperament, and reflect on your set of values and the ways in which you communicate with those around you. Things will go smoothly in July, and communications with partners, colleagues, family, and friends will broaden your view of your social circle. Being naturally free-spirited and light-hearted as you are, take advantage of the opportunity to travel and enrich yourself in a new space that July will provide. This will be a wanderlust, constantly moving month for you, and by the end of July, you’re going to have a clear slate to take on the rest of 2019 with. So as you cleanse your soul and scrub your life of things weighing you down, go ahead and use Solved Skincare’s Coconut Oil Cleansing Pads to ensure that your skin is as clean and refreshed as your mind will be.

Capricorn (December 21—January 20): Eye Cream

Capricorn, July will be a month of connection and communication for you, both within and without. Get in touch with the parts of yourself you admire most, and furnish the relationship you have with your sense of self. Address issues within your romantic and social life, and reach out to coworkers and colleagues whose insights you may have previously overlooked. Transform the way in which you carry yourself by connecting with yourself first and foremost, and using your enlightened understandings to come out of the trying periods of trouble between yourself and others with a new perspective. Pay attention to your bonds closely and observe the actions of yourself and others keenly. Convey yourself as someone who is bright, open, and willing to learn with a little help from the Erborian Ginseng Infusion Total Eye to prevent your relationships from deteriorating under wrongful assumptions and false pretenses. 

Aquarius (January 20—February 19): Moisturizer 

July is all about new beginnings and strong relationships for Aquarius suns. Your creativity and uniqueness show their faces every day in your professional life, while your adeptness at building new relationships from scratch and making old bonds even stronger will make your personal life flourish. As new people meet you, new opportunities intrigue you, and new projects captivate you, make sure your fierce passion doesn’t turn into frustration or obliviousness. Focus on creating a productive vocabulary and a creative empire, and let yourself get lost in your headspace, because something great is sure to come out of it. And while your work life, social life, and personal life develops into something amazing and inspiring, don’t forget about your skin in the process—with the right moisturizer in hand, it’s all clear skies and double rainbows for Aquarius signs this July.

Pisces (February 19—March 21): Facial Mist 

Pisces will experience energy spikes in nearly every aspect of their lives this July. Your health and fitness will take a turn for the best, while your romantic and creative sides will show themselves for these next few weeks and crave an outlet to develop themselves. July will be a very extroverted month for you, leaving you little room for bouts of solitude and melancholy; though you’ll contemplate the meaning of your existence more than once, you’ll find yourself being drawn outside more and more, toward crowds and people you know and love. Between social outings, work, creative endeavors, and time spent with those you hold close, your schedule will rarely show itself to be empty. Take the Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Essence Mist with you during your go-go-go schedule throughout July, because just a few extra spritzes a day will make a huge difference in how you feel and how you present yourself!
