Self-Care for Your Star Sign 101: Virgo

Self-Care for Your Star Sign 101: Virgo

The transition from summer to fall marks the beginning of Virgo season. This time of year is an important time to reflect and spend more time on personal care for anyone, but even more so when your sun, moon, or rising sign falls under the earthy Virgo.

Self-Care Tips for Virgos 

  1. Prioritize self-care in the morning.
    If you’re like most Virgos, diligence is your middle name. In fact, you probably already get more done in your average morning than some people do all day! But a self-loving morning routine isn’t just about checking things off a list and feeling prepared. Be sure to carve in some “you” time in the morning, too. Whether that’s a moment for meditation, an extra long shower, or a morning yoga class, make sure it’s something that helps you feel at ease as well as organized.

  2. Practice a creative hobby.
    As a Virgo, your mind is constantly spinning with new ideas. Often, these ideas are centered on your career, thanks to your high work ethic. While that’s a wonderful trait to have, it can leave your personal life hungry. The remedy? Start or rekindle a creative hobby you’re interested in. Your organizational brain will love activities that allow you to measure, create patterns, or work with shapes – try sewing, baking, or illustration.

  3. Make comfort food.
    Virgos are earth signs, guided by the Goddess of the Harvest and a love for food. Rather than turn to fast food or junk food when you’re stressed, why not make food a form of self-care? Thankfully, the late summer harvest is full of earthy fruits and vegetables that nourish your mind and body. Try cooking with yellow and orange foods (like squash, pumpkin, and millet) to channel earth energy and support your digestive system in autumn. 

Self-Care Products for Virgos 

  • AKT Therapy Elemental Sun Balm
    As earth signs, Virgos benefit greatly from being outside. But, even though summer is dwindling down, that doesn’t mean that sun care isn’t still important. This sunscreen by AKT Therapy checks all the boxes (plus has a delightful cherry smell you’ll love), so you can rest assured that it’s good for you, good for your skin, and good for the planet.

    The Ritual
    Sometimes, Mother Nature is our best medicine. Thankfully, your earthy Virgo energy loves to be outside. So, lather on your AKT Therapy Elemental Sun Balm and lace up your hiking boots. We’re hitting the trails!

    Hiking is one of the best self-care activities for Virgos. Not only do you get to enjoy the great outdoors and get some exercise, but your mind gets a workout as well. Navigating the changing landscape feeds your hungry mind and gives you space to ideate. And thanks to your Elemental Sun Balm, you’ll be well-protected from the elements while you bask in the beauty of it all.

  • Pink Moon Over the Moon Lunar Rose Mist
    Virgos can get stuck in a cycle of overthinking, people-pleasing, and perfectionism. While this all comes from a good place of wanting things to go well, these behaviors quickly start to wear down your energy and self-esteem. Our Over the Moon Lunar Rose Mist is infused with rose flower and rose quartz – two ingredients that spark self-love and self-compassion. Plus, this mist is a super multitasker to keep your beauty cabinet organized and clutter-free! It hydrates, conditions, supports, and fortifies skin and hair.

    The Ritual
    If you don’t already have a go-to self-love affirmation up your sleeve, now is the time to create one. A self-love affirmation is a simple sentence that you can say or think to yourself when you need an extra boost of confidence or have to set a boundary. A great example of this is “I am enough” or “I love my body, I love my mind, I love myself.” Once you have your affirmation, say or think it repeatedly as you mist the Over the Moon Lunar Rose Mist over your skin and hair. Take deep breaths. Enjoy the moment. 

  • Relato Nativo Tinted Lip & Cheek Balm
    One thing we haven’t mentioned yet, lovely Virgo, is that you do like to look your best. Whether you’re just hanging around at home or headed out for a big night on the town, primping and perfecting is part of your nature. But, you also like to keep things natural. That’s why the Relato Nativo Lip & Cheek Balm is the perfect rouge for you. The sheer berry tint glides on cheeks, eyelids, and lips, hydrating your skin with organic natural oils and botanicals along the way.

    The Ritual
    A quick makeup routine is great – and this Lip & Cheek Balm will surely speed up your natural glowy look. But sometimes it’s nice to linger in the “getting ready” process. So, let’s make a self-care moment out of your makeup routine. Put on a confidence-boosting playlist, mist some self-love into the air, sip some beauty tea, and let your natural beauty shine through!
