How The Moon Can Affect Your Beauty 

Have you ever had one of those days where everything was going wrong or nothing felt in sync… and then jokingly questioned, “Is there a full moon tonight?” Well, it is believed that the moon can actually effect our days. Throughout history, people have used different types of calendars to help them know when to plant crops, choose the best hunting times, catch the best fish, and in some religions; even reserve holidays. There are also some people that have used calendars to track the best times to fulfill beauty treatments such as haircuts, dentist visits, diets, and facials.
It is a very interesting concept to believe our beauty regimen can have better success while following a lunar calendar. A calendar for health and beauty says that while the moon is in waning and in Leo (as it is today), it is a good time to absorb nutrients. For example, today would be a good day to wash, dye, or cut hair, diet, have an operation, or even receive a beauty treatment! It also shows that when the moon is waxing, your skin absorbs more nutrients. During this time, you would do better with skin treatments and massages. The phase of the moon and the sign the moon is positioned in, can very much effect the outcome of our days and tasks.
All calendars work by making it possible for you to organize time units by observing astronomical cycles. Months are based on the moon's orbit around the Earth, years are based on Earth's orbit around the sun and days depend on how fast the Earth revolves around its axis. (Demand Media) Because the moon circles the Earth in the same time it takes to rotate once, the moon always shows one face to the Earth. A new moon occurs every 29.5 days. Astronomers call the time between new moons a synodic month. All lunar calendars that people create, base their months on the synodic month rather than the months you find on a solar calendar. The Solar and Lunar Calendars are both similar in form, but opposite in every other way. A Solar Calendar is based on the year the Earth goes around the Sun. A Lunar Calendar is based on the cycle of the Moon around Earth, but the Moon phases are taken in account, not the real round of the moon around earth against the stars in space. Our everyday calendar follows the form of the solar calendar. Here are some easy differences between the Solar and Lunar calendar: There are 365 days in a solar calendar year (plus 1 in leap years.) There are 354 days in a lunar calendar year and 384 in a leap year. In a lunar calendar every month starts with the full moon, there are 12 months in a year for 2 years and 13 months in a leap year, which is every 3 years (about). In a solar calendar, summer solstice is ALWAYS June 21. In a lunar calendar, summer solstice can be any day of 2 different months
There are also astrologists that practice the belief that our signs correlate to specific body parts. For example, Gemini’s rule the arms, lungs, shoulders, hands, fingers, and nervous system. Gemini also governs the respiratory and nervous system, so those born under this sign can appear to be ‘nervy’ or fidget, ‘living on their nerves’.
