These 6 Beauty Products Will Get You Through Mercury Retrograde
Sorry to break it to ya, but Mercury retrograde is here again.
I know, I know. We've been through enough already, but it's the way of the universe. Luckily, we can rely on a few beauty products to help us get through another chaotic cycle.
"From May 29 to June 22, the trickster planet will moonwalk in the airy sign of Gemini," says InStyle's go-to astrologer Lisa Stardust. "Communication, travel, and technological issues will consume our lives — as well as the reappearance of old flames and friends. These beauty products, most of which are nostalgic in the true spirit of Mercury, will help us thrive and survive in style during the astrological havoc."
Well, thank God.
Oh, and if you just so happen to be going through your Saturn return right now too, you should definitely pick up a copy of Stardust's new book Saturn Return Survival Guide: Navigating This Cosmic Rite of Passage to help you get to the other side unscathed.
Ahead, we share astrologer-approved beauty products to make this upcoming Mercury retrograde a little less painful.
