Sometimes, breakups happen in the most inopportune moments—quarantine period is one of them.
There are several factors to consider when a couple is going through a breakup. Maybe, they were already rocky pre-pandemic or they had a huge fight that couldn’t be resolved. If they live together, breakups suck and sometimes people need a pick-me-up. To guide you through this, we will talk about pamper sessions.
A new ’do
It’s common for people, mostly women, to change their look after a breakup. It’s said that we hold our hair to such esteem that cutting it off feels like letting go of an emotional burden when we’re going through a stressful experience. So go and get that trim—or get a short bob like Basha in One More Chance.
Play with color
If you don’t want to get a drastic haircut, you can dye your hair instead. You can start with a subtle shade like chocolate brown or add balayage highlights. Or, you can jump right in with a bold color.
An excuse to excessively bat your lashes
Want to try something new? Get eyelash extensions. For two to three weeks, you’ll have thick, luscious lashes. But if you want something more long-term, try an eyelash perm, which lasts for a month at most. The difference between the two procedures is that perms lift your natural lashes in a chemical-based process.
Waxing out any worries
There’s nothing wrong with natural body hair, but we also won’t shame anyone for wanting to get a wax every now and then. Treat yourself to a cold wax session, which is less painful and messy.
A sweet alternative
In case you haven’t tried it yet, sugaring is a natural hair removal method using sugar, water and lemon: a mixture that grips onto one's hair and not the skin. If you’re looking for a non-painful hair removal procedure, this is the one for you.
Deep tissue relaxation
Get an endorphin boost and less body pain with a massage. You deserve it after sitting in front of a laptop for hours and the days of stress you’ve felt because of the breakup.
