WHAT YOU'RE TEMPTED TO DO:
Book appointment with cosmetic surgeon; tan yourself silly.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
"Don't run to the surgeon for a dramatic overhaul," advises New York dermatologist Dr. Frederic Brandt. "You might want to enhance your pout slightly, but your lips should never enter the room before you do" (i.e., not the time to ask for Lisa Rinna pillow lips). "And you may be depressed, but don't get lazy about sunscreen," adds Brandt. "It's still the most important skin-care step to follow year-round." Taking good care of your skin in general is paramount when you're stressed. "I often see unusual acne and redness develop," notes Brandt. If this is the case, he recommends booking an appointment for a series of Isolaz laser treatments to clean out your pores and kill bacteria. Keep your skin radiant and ready for future romance by exfoliating weekly using a topical at-home peel or microdermabrasion. A good cry can be therapeutic, but you'll want to lessen facial puffiness with a cool mask or compress. Finally, even though you may feel like tossing out the birth-control pills, convinced you'll never have sex again, trust us, you will — and playing with your hormone levels means risking acne flare-ups.
