You have overcome 2020 – the gloomiest leap year ever – and you have reached the end of the year feeling exhausted. We all had to face some hard challenges, but Virgo signs in particular love perfection and order, therefore, all the chaos was not welcome news for you. During the first half of 2021, you felt out of balance, but we have good news for all mobile signs of the zodiac (Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo and Pisces).

The future is rosy and stress-free

Move away from your commitments and reconnect with nature. Astrologists define you as the helper of the zodiac because you are often there to help others; however, rest and relaxation are fundamental for your wellness. Taking some time-out to do nothing (or do whatever you want, but just for yourself!) is the best thing you can do to pamper yourself. Doing things that make you feel calm and balanced can help you establish healthier (and less toxic) relationships.

Useful tips for your balance (and for your skin)

For your birthday season, you simply need to take care of yourself. We know this is simple advice; however, sometimes it’s best to go back to basics.

Here’s some tips for your beauty routine by Gerard’s.

Puresense is the line that seems to have been designed for your needs. Do you want to be sure? Just try Puresense cleansing gel for combination or impure skin. With its gentle foam, this gel deeply eliminates impurities and any make-up residue. The extracts of Liquorice, St. John’s wort, Propolis and the Sebum Balancer Complex, plant-based complex with astringent action, clear the pores from excess sebum, leaving skin smooth and matte.

Apply the gel onto face and neck with a gentle massage, focusing on the critical areas (forehead-nose-chin). Rinse with lukewarm water and then, apply Puresense alcohol-free toner for combination or impure skin. The mix of Centella and Lemon extracts, plus Fomes Officinalis mushroom and Iris Florentina, with purifying, moisturising and soothing properties, shrinks the pores appearance and regulates the production of sebum, reducing the shiny skin effect. Pour some product on a cotton pad, and pat onto face, neck and décolleté. 

The partners you were looking for

Next time you are getting rid of empty bottles or expired products, remember these, exactly what your skin and your soul need to shine again. Exfolight is a gentle enzymatic illuminating face exfoliant with proteolytic enzymes. It boosts the natural regenerating process, leaving skin radiant, fresh and oxygenated. The soothing and softening mix of Aloe Vera, Birch and Hamamelis, makes this exfoliant ideal even for sensitive skin types. Leave it on for 15 minutes while you listen to your favourite podcast.

What about your showering/bathing routine? 

Yantra body scrub with microgranules is the ideal product that combines the sweet purity of Vanilla microgranules with the exfoliating properties of Bora Bora sand.

It stimulates the natural cell turnover and leaves skin radiant, smooth and flawless. EuphorylTM, the molecule of happiness, stimulates endorphins, providing harmony and relaxation. Your legs will enjoy new youth!

Fight the aging 

When it comes to freshness and vitality, we cannot forget the anti-aging remedies by Gerard’s. After the age of 35, a cream like Soysoy Jaluractive, replenishing face cream with hyaluronic acid – SPF 8, is pretty much compulsory, especially for you, Virgo. A treasure of vitality for stressed skin types that present loss of tone and require oxygenation. Rich in Hyaluronic Acid with high molecular weight, SOYSOY cream provides long-lasting hydration, replenishes relaxed and hollow areas with a reshaping action.

And for a boost of hyaluronic acid, we recommend Soysoy Jaluractive, replenishing face serum. It counters the first signs of aging, tiredness and dull skin caused by dead cells. With DermoPlankton and Hyaluronic Acid, it promotes the synthesis of collagen and elastin.

The Biocorrector, extract of Hawaiian micro-seaweed, promotes cellular respiration and protects against free radicals. Apply in the morning and evening, before the cream, onto face, neck and décolleté.

The lifeline product

One last tip: if your skin is oily or impure (or acne-prone), Pure&mat face mask with instant purifying effect is the solution you were looking for. The innovative synergy of Juniper berries, Rosemary and Lavender, as well as the Nio-Sebactive purifying complex, visibly transforms the skin appearance in a few seconds, performing a unifying action and minimising small imperfection.

Clean your face well and apply a generous layer to face and neck. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse off.
