We all need a little TLC every now and again, but does your routine nurture your spiritual self? Astrologer Carolyne Faulkner spotlights the best approach for your star sign...
AriesMARCH 21 - APRIL 19
Dynamism and passion drive this fire sign, but even Ariens need to take time out to relax. Bring a little bit of downtime into your day-to-day routine with Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Balm, € 33,00. The soothing blend of essential oils will help calm your mind and your skin.
Taurus | April 20 - May 20

Gemini | May 21 - June 20

Cancer | June 21 - July 22
With an innate skill for achieving inner and outer wellbeing, Cancerians love partaking in a bit of self-care. Swap your usual mask for a grounding mud-based formula, such as Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask, € 30,00. Avoid getting distracted by your phone though!
LeoJULY 23 - AUGUST 22
A love of creativity and bright hues unite Leos. You'll find your shoulders relax when you treat yourself to an at-home mani. File, buff and opt for an eye-catching colour that you can match to your lipstick, such as Nailberry Cherry Cherie Oxygenated Nail Lacquer, € 20,50.
Virgo | August 23 - September 22
Those with Virgo in their charts tend to be driven by a love of perfection and symmetry. You’re likely to find a sense of calm in a methodical approach to self-care. Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Cleansing Ritual, € 40,00, provides all reassurance and order you and your skin crave.

Capricorn | December 22 - January 19
You are ruled by Saturn, which is the sign that evokes a sense of duty and sensibility. Let loose and forget the day's stresses with a glamorous lip colour. Chantecaille Lip Tint Hydrating Balm, N/A, adds a splash of colour and sensibly moisturises too.
Aquarius | January 20 - February 18
Rebels at heart, Aquarians are famous for their innovative, out-there ideas. Everyone needs some downtime every once in a while, so if you’re feeling out of sorts, run a bath with a cupful of Mauli Himalayan Healing Salts, € 30,60. Lie back, relax and reset.
