Breakups suck. We’ve all been there. Curing heartbreak can seem like an impossible challenge when the breakup is fresh or even a few weeks old. Even though relationships end and things can feel rough, a post-breakup glow up is almost certainly around the corner. Bringing on your post-relationship glow up requires just a few simple steps. Whether you’re the dumper or the dumpee we’ve got the steps to help you reconnect with yourself and make the best comeback of all time. Read on to learn more about our top tips for self care and how to glow up after a breakup.
Self Care After a Breakup
One of the best and healthiest ways to get over a breakup and to usher in your glow up as a newly single person is to tap back into all the things that bring you joy. We love to think of this as taking this time to start dating yourself! Plan a solo weekend away or a small girls' staycation. Pick up an old hobby that you got too busy to enjoy when you were coupled. Tap back into your own inner wellness with a monthly massage spa membership. Dress to impress yourself. Whatever you do, the most important thing is to occupy your time with things that make you happy and help you evolve into the best version of yourself. Curious on where to start? We’ve got the perfect roadmap to give you a new, fresh start flying solo.
Detox Your Social Media
In case you haven’t yet, let this be your official reminder to block your ex. Even if you and your former partner ended on amicable terms, not drawing a clear boundary on your social media accounts can cause the breakup to fester and can even hold you back from fully realizing your glow up. Until you feel fully healed, it’s best to unfollow or even block your ex on social media so you can move on at your own pace. For an even more enhanced emotional glow up, consider doing a deep social media detox by unfollowing all social accounts that give you any kind of icky feeling. Instead, follow brands and people who make you feel good so you can avoid self-sabotage scrolling.
A few of our favorite accounts to follow also just so happen to be female-founded brands that we’ve had the pleasure to work with in collections both current and past.

Actively Practice Self Love with Some New Underwear
Giving yourself a confidence boost is a crucial part of prepping for your breakup glow up. Treat yourself with a gift to U, from U with an underwear subscription- a monthly surprise of luxurious underwear curated to your preferences. Is it time for a total underwear overhaul? Update your underwear drawer with a 3, 5 or 10 pair Underwear Pack, available in a range styles that are designed to make you feel and look your best. Because after all, nothing helps you recover from a past relationship quite like getting in touch with your own sensuality and loving yourself.
Adopt Some Glow Up Quotes to Live By
Affirmations are an easy and impactful way to tap into your inner goddess and celebrate her now that you’re newly single. An affirmation is a mantra, quote, or phrase that, when recited with intention regularly, helps empower and encourage a person to show up as their best self, every day. Try adding an affirmation into your morning routine to help remind yourself what a beautiful, brilliant badass you are.
Not sure what to recite? Reference our Underclub card (one comes along with every delivery) as a reminder of the queen you are whether you’re in a relationship or not. We also recommend playing rapper babe Yung Baby Tate’s “I Am “ at full volume for an instant pep talk whenever you need an extra boost.
The Underclub Mantra: In case you forgot to remind yourself this morning, your butt is perfect. Your smile lights up the room, Your mind is insanely cool. You are way more than enough. And you are doing an amazing job at life.
