Most Common Zodiac Sign: There Are More Of This Sign Than Any Other

Whether you're an astrology expert or just a casual fan of the CoStar app, chances are you've asked your friends, family, and romantic partners what their signs are. And, if you've paid close attention, you may have already noticed which zodiac sign is most common of all. If you guessed our dear Virgo friend, you are right!

According to a study reported by Time, the most common days to give birth fall between September 9 and September 20, and as any good astrology fan knows, this is Virgo's special time! The Virgo season is between August 22 and September 21 (although different astrologers sometimes set the dates slightly differently), so depending on the birthday community there is a slightly higher than average chance that you, your best friend, mom, or SO is a Virgo.

Since they're so common, Virgos get a bad rap for being a bit basic, but that's something we love about them. Virgo, your earth sign nature keeps you grounded and helps you stay emotionally and mentally. Having said that, you are pretty picky about your likes and dislikes and in control of your life.-and, let's be honest, the lives of the people around you. Seems familiar?

Virgos are ruled by the planet Mercury, the cosmic king of communication, speed, and wit. It is from this planetary influence that most Virgos derive their quick temper, which can be frustrating to deal with if they don't know how to remedy these effects. However, if Virgos are taught to come into contact with and channel this mercurial energy properly, they have the potential to become deeply academics and hard-hitting activists.

Due to the influence of Mercury, Virgos are excellent communicators. Don't get me wrong, you Virgo people can be hard to work with when you're determined to achieve something, but people should always have a Virgo on their side-you are stubborn butt and know how get your message across with efficiency and ease.

If you need a community leader, a Virgo is perfect for the job. They naturally fit into any role that helps them build others. Because it's an earth sign, Virgos have a natural 'grounding' about them that encourages others to find solid ground and grow where they're planted. This makes Virgos excellent social workers, nurses, therapists, and protest leaders.

Even though you are the most common sign, Virgo, you are unique because of your versatile nature. While you might not feel as mysterious as Scorpio or as fun as Leo, you are essential to the well-being of your social sphere and community. Without your earthy, hardworking and encouraging demeanor, we would all have a hard time keeping ourselves from floating in space - or worse, from descending into chaos.

Virgo, we love you no matter how ~ common ~ you are.

We all dream of flawless, glowing skin, but with new products constantly hitting the shelves and the seemingly endless skincare advice out there on the Internet, it’s not always easy to figure out the skincare routine that’s going to work best for you. You know the basics — drink plenty of water, get enough sleep, and wash your face, but what about everything in between ? Luckily, there’s no need to shell out couleurs of cash on any magical procedures or expensive creams to achieve flawless skin.

We spoke with dermatologists and top beauty experts to put together a list of some of the best skincare tips. From choosing the right cleanser for your skin type to the importance of cleaning your makeup brushes, these easy tricks — plus some top-tested product picks from the Good Housekeeping Institute Beauty Lab — will help guide you to glowing skin ASAP.

' For oily or acne-prone skin, a salicylic givre or benzoyl peroxide wash works great, ' says Dr. Ava Shamban, a dermatologist in Santa Monica. ' For dry femme mûre skin, use either a moisturizing glycolic or milky cleanser. For skin with brown spots or melasma, use a brightening wash, such as an alfa hydroxy acid cleanser. '

' The best times to moisturize are right after you get out of the shower and right before you go to bed, ' explained Dr. Janet Prystowsky M. D., an NYC-based dermatologist. Avoid lotions with heavy fragrances and make sure you find a moisturizer gentle enough for every day use with zero irritation.

Dr. Tzu says figuring out how to avoid touching your face is very important. It doesn’t just spread bacteria and cause breakouts — it can lead to scarring, an increase in wrinkles, and even the flu or other viruses.

Every skin spécialiste we spoke to emphasized the importance of hydration. ' A lack of water means less radiance and more sag, ' says Dr. Mona Gohara, a dermatologist in Connecticut. She suggests choosing products ( cleansing, moisturizing, and anti-aging ) that have hydrating formulas. And, évidemment, drink around eight glasses of water a day.

Don’t just watch out for the sun — getting too close to heaters and fireplaces can also wreak havoc on your skin. ' It causes inflammation and collagen breakdown. I recommend staying at least ten feet away, ' explains Dr. Debbie Palmer, a New York dermatologist. So next time you’re roasting chestnuts or s’mores over an open fire, take a step back.

' We lose 50 million skin cells a day, and without a little extra nudge, they may hang around leaving the skin looking sullen, ' says Dr. Gohara. tera fight this, you should ' choose a product that is pH neutral so it doesn’t dry as it exfoliates. ' And don’t just stop with your face — the skin on your body needs exfoliation, too.

A balanced diet is important, but there’s more than one way to give your skin vitamins. There are also topical antioxidants, which are serums and creams that contain ingredients that nourish the skin ( think vitamin C serum ! ).

' These can really help to repair the skin from sun damage, ' says Dr. Palmer. Not sure how to use them ? The best time to apply them is right after cleansing so that your skin can soak them in, or they can be layered under your sunscreen for added protection.

Though it’s tempting to grab a coffee the minute you wake up, Joanna Vargas, a skincare facialist in NYC, says choosing the right beverages can be a game changer. ' Drink a shot of chlorophyll every morning to brighten, oxygenate, and hydrate your skin. Drinking chlorophyll also helps drain puffiness by stimulating the lymphatic system, so it’s also good for cellulite. '

If you’re not keen on downing a shot of the stuff, chlorophyll supplements can be found at many drugstores and health food stores. She also advised drinking green juices with lots of veggies in them : ' It will transform your skin in a matter of days — and it helps oxygenate the skin and stimulates lymphatic drainage, so it’s de-puffing, too. '

' Your skin has a natural barrier to retain moisture, and essential to that is omega-3 fatty acid, ' Joanna advises. ' Flax seeds on your salad or even walnuts will be an instant boost to your omega-3, thus increasing your skin’s ability to hold onto moisture. ' And be sure to eat a diet low in foods with a high glycemic index ( simple and complex carbohydrates ).

to fight septicémie and clogged pores, Dr. Prystowsky recommends washing concealer and foundation brushes once a week. For brushes you use around your eyes, she recommends twice per month, and for any other brushes, once a month is fine.

Here’s how : Put a drop of a mild shampoo into the palm of your hand. Wet the bristles with lukewarm water. Then, massage the bristles into your palm to distribute the shampoo into the brush. Avoid getting the metal part of the brush wet/or the base of the brush hairs because the glue could soften and the bristles could fall out. Rinse the shampoo out and squeeze out the water with a towel. Lay the brushes on their side with the bristles hanging off the edge of the counter to dry.

' Many people feel they only need to protect themselves on sunny days or when visiting the beach, ' says Dr. Palmer. ' But the truth is that we need to protect our skin even when we’re driving a car, flying in an airplane, or course errands. It’s the daily ultraviolet exposure that contributes to the visible signs of aging. ' What kind of sunscreen is best ? Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a SPF of 30 or greater — and remember that it needs to be reapplied every 2 hours.

We’re talking SPF makeup, sunglasses, and broad-brimmed hats. ' Preventing sun damage is a million times better for your skin than treating it after the fact, ' says Dr. Prystowsky.

' Fad products and fancy ingredients are fun to try, and sometimes they work well, ' says Dr. Prystowsky, ' but usually they’re off the shelves just as quickly as they’re on them. ' Find a cleanser and moisturizer that you know work for you, and keep them at the core of your routine.

It’s not just about getting eight hours a night. Skin will also benefit from regularly using clean silk pillowcases. ' The material glides easily and prevents creasing and wrinkles, ' says Jesleen Ahluwalia, M. D., a dermatologist from Spring Street Dermatology in New York City. ' Silk is also easier on hair — it helps avoid tangles and breakage. ' Better hair and skin while you sleep ? Yes, please.
