If you’re suffering from heartbreak, there’s one guaranteed way to cheer yourself up: a dedicated pamper session. Not only will a makeover leave you looking fabulous, it will also give you some important me-time to forget all about that awful ex. Here’s our guide to the best post-breakup beauty fixes.
Go for the chop
It might be a classic breakup move, but there’s a reason that many women decide to chop off their locks when coming out of a relationship. In fact, many cultures believe that hair contains the “energy” of a situation – and whilst it’s still there you’ll always be reminded of the times you’ve been through. So, a haircut can be symbolic of a fresh start. And even if you don’t believe in such things, there’s definitely something cathartic about shedding the past and trying out a totally new look.
Freshen up your beauty routine
Getting a fabulous new look doesn’t have to be limited to your tresses, either. Mark the end of the old and welcome in the new by giving your beauty routine a serious overhaul. So ditch the everyday makeup and try something different, like a bold red lip or a smokey eye. This won’t just make you look great – switching things up can also help you feel more positive about moving forwards.
Hit the blusher
Let’s face it, you’re likely planning at least a few nights of eating ice cream in front of a succession of chick flicks – not exactly the quickest route to healthy, glowing skin. But luckily, it’s easy to fake the rosy cheeks that will have people commenting that you’ve never looked better. Choose a cream product in a gold-pink shade and sweep it across the apples of your cheeks for a better-off-without-them glow.
Indulge in a spa day
What better way to recover from a breakup than by pampering mind, body and soul at your favourite spa? In an ideal world, you’d gather all your best girlfriends and treat yourselves for the day, but if they’re unavailable you don’t need to miss out. A solo session of saunas, massages and relaxation will still have you looking at things in a brand new light.
Switch up your wardrobe
Be honest – what has been your style throughout most of your relationship? Did you tend to stick to modest clothes in muted colours? Or did you lean towards bright shades and bold design? Whatever it was, now’s the time to try something different – so dig out those overlooked items at the back of your closet, or treat yourself to a shopping spree. New look, new you might be an overused expression, but it’s a great way to feel positive about the changes in your life.
