What Kind of Face Mask Should You Try Based on Your Zodiac Sign?

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Rutgers chapter.


Zodiac signs are both entertaining and intuitive. A zodiac sign can be related to qualities that you resemble which can help give us purpose by answering questions (perhaps, quite vaguely) about our daily struggles. There are so many face masks on the market, how do you decide which one is best for you? You may find yourself at crossroads. Luckily, your star-sign is the best compass to guide you.  If you’re looking for something new to try with your skin care routine, try a face mask that matches your zodiac sign!
