Your Post-Breakup Beauty Guide

Heidi Klum is giving the tattoo that features her ex hubby's name Seal on her inner right arm the ax. What's the first thing Heidi Klum did after serving Seal with divorce papers? Start removing his name tattoo from her body. 

The New York Daily News reports that the supermodel and "Project Runway" judge has started the process of removing a vow renewal tattoo she received on her right inner arm to celebrate their fourth wedding. They were married for seven years, but proclaiming your love for your partner in permanent body ink is never a good idea (Wino Forever, anyone?)

Clearly removing a tattoo proclaiming your love for an ex is something you'll want to remove immediately, ut there are many other ways to start anew. Here are the top 10 ways to make yourself look (and feel!) better after a breakup.

1. Cut your hair. It's no secret this is the easiest way to immediately make a drastic change and get lots of positive attention. While we don't recommend for you to pull a Britney by shaving your head, getting a cute, chic cut is the perfect breakup antidote for many women. "After I broke up with a guy I dated in college, I chopped off my long curly hair," Kate, 31, revealed to glo.com. "In some ways, it was an act of rebellion; but, in the larger sense, I felt so heavy by the end of the relationship that I wanted to do anything I could to make me feel lighter."

2. Work up a sweat. Yes, you'll have a healthier, tighter body in just a few short weeks, but getting exercise is also a natural mood booster. London-based life coach and ashtanga yoga instructor Michael Myerscough feels it's impossible to hit the gym and still feel miserable. "Working out keeps the rational side of your mind busy, while your subconscious gets on with processing everything in the background," he told iVillage. "Exercise also releases endorphins—your body's own feel good chemicals—giving you the same feeling as chocolate without the calories or the cavities."

3. Get a (makeup) makeover. That pushy sales associates at the makeup counter you typically avoid when shopping may become your new best friend. Take a seat and let them update your makeup with a sexy smokey eye or a new lip color. According to Rachel A. Sussman, author of The Breakup Bible, revamping your look will help you feel sexy and desirable.

4. Become a sleeping beauty. This may be the last thing that you want to do, but Sheri Meyers, author of Chatting or Cheating: How To Detect Infidelity, Rebuild love and Affair-Proof Your Relationship, writes that sleep helps to replenish your beauty. If you're having trouble catching some zzz's, Meyers advises keeping a journal by your bed and writing down any painful or anxious feelings you might be having.

5. Schedule a spa day. This is always a great pick-me-up, but treating yourself to a massage, facial, or another pampering procedure is perhaps the most relaxing way to take your mind off of an ex. Fixmyheartache.com advises clearing your mind of all thoughts while at the spa and focusing only on the treatment that you receiving. While it may seem like a short-term fix, in the long run, it will definitely help alleviate stress.

6. Get a manicure/pedicure. Elle Woods (the bubbly, outgoing girl from the movie "Legally Blonde") was smart to get her nails done after breaking up with her boyfriend, Warner. Selena Gomez also recently beelined it to the salon for a manicure after breaking up with Justin Beiber. There's something very satisfying about getting a hand or foot massage and walking out with glossy new coat of polish.

7. Invest in a good eye cream. Yes, it's OK to cry your eyes out. In fact, it's highly recommended by eharmony.com to let yourself mourn by crying. But there's no need to walk around with red, puffy eyes. Before going to bed at night and in the mornings, dab on a little bit of eye cream so that you maintain a bright-eyed look. Store it in the fridge for a cooling effect. We love the Origins GinZing Eye Cream ($29.50, origins.com).

8. Start glowing. There's no need to walk around looking like a colorless, sleep deprived zombie after ending a relationship. If a beach getaway with the girls isn't in the forecast, create your own faux glow by using self tanner and bronzer. Avoid something that's too dark as so you won't look like a "Jersey Shore" extra. The Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer ($8.19, drugstore.com) is subtle and easy to incorporate into your regular beauty routine.

9. Let your lips do the talking. Now that you're single again, let's those pretty puckers back in kissing shape! Try using an exfoliant first—we love the bliss fabulips sugar lip scrub—to make your lips soft and smooth. Then, invest in a great red lipstick like MAC Ruby Woo ($15, maccosmetics.com). Many ladies swear a bold lip heals all. "After my last breakup, I decided to transform myself from sexy to classy," Sabina, 35, told glo.com. "It started with wearing red lipstick whenever I left home. It reminded me of my grandmother, who was a dame to the day she died."

10. Try a new hair color. If cutting your strands sounds scary, try going for a new hair hue instead. Who can forget the scene in the "Sex And The City" movie when Carrie Bradshaw dyed her hair chocolate brown after her awful breakup with Mr. Big? Or how Katy Perry rocked blue hair after her split from Russell Brand? NYC based hair colorist Marie Robinson told The Huffington Post she notices people altering their hair color when making a big life change. "I think it has to do with a sense of freedom," she said. "[Women now] have time for themselves." Before changing up your color, be sure to consult with a professional hair colorist first to discuss which shade will look best on you.
