You've heard of holistic skincare. Is it too much of a stretch to go even more left of the mark and predict your year in skin dependent on your star sign? Scientifically proven (and, by scientifically, we mean conceived in our own minds) to improve your skin, break your worst habits and generally make you a better version of yourself. Facially, anyway. Ready?

ARIES

Aries yearly horoscope

First, you're a fire sign so if we're talking literally – you're 'prone to stress rashes' according to ELLE's astrologers the Saturn Sisters. You're a fickle sign and tend not to stick with something long enough to see if it works, which frankly is a disaster for your skincare.

Your year ahead

You've got to give a new regime at least 12 weeks to have an effect, and it might get worse before it gets better, so start from scratch with a sensitive skincare routine and stick to it. Your skin will calm, it will be more predictable and you'll see the benefit of commitment.

Use Cetaphil cleanser twice a day. Skip the Clarisonic, your face doesn't want exfoliation every day. Use a warm muslin cloth instead, then finish with Kiehl's Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream, £49, comforting day cream.

LEO

Leo yearly horoscope

Saturn Sisters say you 'love bold colors, and might be so into dramatic looks that taking a make-up break to "reset" might be a good idea.' You're brave in your choices so you tend to take an experimental approach to your skincare, based on whatever takes your fancy next.

Your year ahead

Stop leaving mascara traces below your lashes Leo. Soak a baby wipe in make-up remover and gently drag along your lower lash line with your nail. A really good cleanser is going to be your saviour, Try Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood, £33. Invest in a really good micellar water (like Bioderma Micellar Water, £10.20) to get rid of make-up at night.

SAGITTARIUS

Sagittarius yearly horoscope

You're stubborn according to our experts. 'A fire sign that doesn't know when to stop, so too much is never enough.' With this in mind you could benefit from simplifying your skincare routine. The K-Beauty 10-step routine appeals to you deep down, admit it. More excuses to shop for beauty bits, but you don't need that much stuff

Your year ahead

Your skin is overwhelmed, too much is definitely too much, tone it down, take out some steps and your skin will thank you. The most important steps for you are cleanser, serum, moisturiser and a mask – because you love the indulgence. Use Peter Thomas Roth Blue Marine Algae Intense Hydrating Mask, £34, twice a week max. You'll feel like a new person afterwards!

TAURUS

Taurus yearly horoscope

'Gets stuck in a rut – this is the sign that hates change (but loves natural beauty).' You've most likely used the same face wash for 10 years – that's OK – but times have changed Taurus, there's something better waiting for you.

Your year ahead

Take advantage of all the innovation that has happened in the last year. The key ingredient for your skin is algae. You can benefit the most from the detoxifying effects in the Origins Drink Up Mask, £24. Good news, you can stick to it at least until July, when your skin will have summer needs, so go lighter. You can manage a pre-planned change just twice a year, right?

VIRGO

Virgo yearly horoscope

The Saturn Sisters say you're 'a super-sensitive sign, addicted to routine, so much so that you can be obsessive about it.' Routine is a great thing when it comes to your skincare, you see things through, but sometimes you need to break old habits to make better new ones

Your year ahead

Your skin has different needs depending on the weather, your hormones or your sleep pattern. Add some variation into your remit to cover all the bases. A hydrating serum cannot fail you when skin gets stressed or winter-dry, try Bakel Deep Hydration Serum, £95. Go for an oil-free creamy cleanser, such as La Roche Posay Effaclar H Cleansing Cream, £9.50, when it's warmer or your hormones are raging.

CAPRICORN

Capricorn yearly horoscope

You have a competitive edge, which means you're 'driven to win at all costs and can be hard on yourself.' This means you're thorough in your approach and you never skip a proper cleanse, astrologers say. 'You love luxury and must work some of it into your weekly regime to feel good.'

Your year ahead

Be kind to yourself, Capricorn, and if kindness comes in expensive, beautiful packages, so be it. Invest in something you've had your eye on for ages, like that La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask, £228, or Chanel Le Lift Crème-Huile Réparatrice, £91. There is a reason they're so luxurious, and the tightening benefits to your skin will warrant the spend.

GEMINI

Gemini yearly horoscope

It's not surprising, being a Gemini, that you're quite indecisive. 'Trying too many things at once means you can't make up your mind.' Which is possibly the worst skincare recipe there is. Trial and error is good, although it may take you longer to discover what works. We can help.

Your year ahead

ONLY experiment with cleanser – it's the thing that will make the biggest difference to your skin. Try a cream cleanser like Aerin Rose Gentle Cleanser, £36, for three weeks, then a foaming one, then an oil. Once you've got that right, your skin will be able to take a bit more experimenting with products. And don't overwhelm a spot. One product at a time will be most effective, seven will not.

LIBRA

Libra yearly horoscope

You love balance, obviously, so you've got a healthy mix of high end and high street, scientific and natural. You're a sign that takes pleasure in 'prettifying'. 'Libras can benefit from trying out totally bold, wild techniques that get attention once in a while'

Your year ahead

You're pretty well-behaved, so you most likely have a decent, balanced skincare regime sorted. Take the Saturn Sisters' advice and break out of your comfort zone, but balance it out with a perfect base to set it off (you should invest in an amazing primer), and take it off religiously or your skin will suffer. Try Clinique Take the Day Off Eye Makeup Remover Stick, £16, it's a cleansing stick for eyes, chuck it in your bag so it's always to hand.

AQUARIUS

Aquarius yearly horoscope

You're the 'Einstein of the zodiac', which means you 'can sometimes get stuck in your own head'. Don't let your skincare become a laborious chore, or something to worry about for a second. Saturn Sisters advise indulging in 'sensual routines that allow you to get back into your body. Like calming rituals, regular massages and spa visits.'

Your year ahead

Sunday is Mask Day. Schedule time to pamper yourself, apply Roger & Gallet Extra-fine Cleansing Mask, £15, while lazing in a bath with Aromatherapy Associates Relax Bath & Shower Oil, £45, and apply Vichy Ideal Body Balm, £18, when you get out. Religiously. Your body will have never felt softer, your face more regularly nourished and plumped and your mind more calm for it.

CANCER

Cancer yearly horoscope

Your super-sensitive side stretches further than your emotions. It means your skin can react to chemicals or abrasive ingredients, too. 'Cancer signs are ruled by the stomach, so good skin starts from the inside.' Lucky for you there is a probiotic skincare trend on the horizon.

Your year ahead

We hate to say it but you may benefit from cutting down on dairy, It's inflammatory and can aggravate any blemishes or skin conditions. First, buy some gluten-free oat milk – arguably the best alternative – then try some Aurelia Probiotic Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser, £52 - to calm your routine down. Your unpredictable skin days will hopefully peter out by summer.

SCORPIO

Scorpio yearly horoscope

You are the Femme Fatale of the zodiac and get bored fairly easily. According to the Saturn Sisters, you 'require regular wholesale transformation. This is the sign of proverbial "shedding of skin"'. Taken literally, regular exfoliation is your friend.

Your year ahead

Double cleanse for a start – don't be lazy or impatient, Scorpio – use a damp muslin cloth to take off the first layer of cleanser (it's the most effective gentle exfoliant), then re-lather and rinse. It's great you find change so exhilarating, just don't deviate from the eye cream; you're expressive, you're prone to a hasty make-up remover wipe and your eyes will show it before the end of the year. MakeClarins Multi-Active Instant Eye Reviver, £35, your go-to.

PISCES

Pisces yearly horoscope

A Pisces without regular hydration is like, well, a fish out of water. 'This water sign requires equal amounts of nourishment and glamour, and a shimmery, ethereal make-up palette is ideal.' Until bedtime when you need to take it all off and slather on a serum before your night cream.

Your year ahead

You're already moisturising – well done, Pisces – but you need to up your game in the winter. Use Shiseido Bio-Performance LiftDynamic Serum, £82, to get into the deeper layers of your skin, then use a comforting day cream with a richer night version in the evenings, such as Estee Lauder DayWear, £42, and NightWear Plus, £46. You'll be amazed by how much fresher you look when you wake up. It'll make you want to wear less make-up, which you won't need anyway because your skin will be glowing.
