March 21-April 19

Usually you're the one who sets trends, but you have to admit that the latest look that's in the shop windows really speaks to you. Who cares if it's the latest thing? It looks great on you, so go with it.


April 20-May 20

Be a beauty pal. Visiting a relative at a senior care facility? Bring a bag of nail polish, lipsticks and travel sizes to hand out to the staff. It's the least you can do for all the services they provide for your family member.


May 21-June 21

You're in a DIY and frugal kind of beauty mood. But if there's a tricky part -- like placing highlights at the back of your head -- enlist the help of a friend. The best part? You get to catch up and beautify simultaneously.


June 22-July 22

Have you canceled one too many workouts for dinner with the girls or time with your sweetheart? Your needs count, too. So cross out a few appointments and make time for some yoga, a swim or a good, long walk.


July 23-August 22

Those jeans seem perfect, but do you really need them or do you just want the thrill of buying something? Think about your closet. How many pairs of jeans do you already own? How many do you wear? There's your answer.


August 23-September 22

The simplest solutions are usually the best. Instead of trying to save your highlighted, sun-fried, blow-dried hair with hundreds of dollars worth of serums and deep conditioners, suck it up. It's time for a haircut


September 23-October 22

Rediscover an old favorite, even if it's not currently in the pages of the latest fashion mags: use rosewater as toner or find a sweet violet-scented fragrance. Being behind the times can put you ahead of the game.


October 23 - November 21

Finding a great pair of jeans is like waiting for true love: just when you're about to give up, along comes the right match. In the meantime, don't crowd your closet with items that sort of work. Wait for the real thing.


November 22-December 21

Ever flipped through old photos and thought how cute you looked, but didn't even know it? Of course you did--and you should. The lesson here? Appreciate how great you look now instead of ten years from now.


December 22-January 19

Instead of plastic surgery, maybe you simply need to institute a program of eating right, getting enough sleep, regular exercise and lots of water. The effects may not be immediately visible, but they'll last for life.


January 20-February 18

A fishing tackle box makes the perfect container for your makeup and, better yet, no one else has it. Actually, no -- the best thing is that it's a lot more durable than what you'd find in a beauty supply store.


February 19-March 20

You know you're supposed to reapply sunblock every hour that you're outside, but it's so annoying with the sun and the sweat and all. Well, find a way. A few minutes of prevention can stave off twenty years of wrinkles.
