Losing weight is hard enough without trying to lose weight in a specific area of your body. Even gym trainers will tell you that spot training is harder than overall weight loss, or even impossible to do.
Your face is the first part of your body people see, which is why it’s so common for people to want to lose weight, tighten their skin and get rid of wrinkles in their faces.
If the little extra weight in your face bothers you, here are a few tips to help slim you down.
Yes, facial exercises do exist. They might seem silly when done but some reports claim that facial exercises not only make your face slimmer, they also build facial muscles.
Simple exercises like puffing your cheeks with air and moving your cheeks from side to side, or clenching your teeth while you smile are just a few exercises you can do.
The best part is, you’ll hardly break a sweat.
Drinking water seems to be a solution for many body needs. Looking to get clear skin? Drink more water. Want to lose weight? Drink more water.
Drinking water increases your metabolism which helps you lose more calories and ultimately more weight.
Taking water periodically during the day also reduces your hunger levels, and you consume less. It is a great alternative to soft drinks and juices that are filled with sugar and sodium which are known to increase weight, lead to water retention, and are generally not good for our bodies.
Cardio workouts are amazing full-body workouts that increase your heart rate and are one of the best methods of losing weight.
Approximately 5 hours of cardio each week is recommended and is just enough for you to start seeing results.
Cardio can be activities as simple as walking, jogging, skipping, or even taking a dance class. You don’t need to make it overly complicated, start with light activities that you enjoy and gradually progress.
Reduce Your Alcohol Intake
Overconsumption of alcohol increases bloating and is one of the greatest contributors to gaining facial fat.
Enjoying alcohol every now and then is fine, but make sure you’re not overindulging. Alcohol is high in calories, and some types are high in carbs.
Increase Your Fiber Intake
Eating more fiber is one of the best ways to slim down your face.
Soluble fiber, for example, has been shown to help people lose weight even in people who are not on a strict diet.
Fiber is very filling, and this helps reduce cravings and overeating. It can be found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and seeds which are also healthy foods filled with vitamins and minerals.
Reduce Consumption of Carbs and Sodium
When cutting down on carbs, be sure to mainly target refined carbs. These include pasta, cookies, cakes, or any other carbs that have been heavily processed.
These carbohydrates greatly contribute to weight gain and fat storage which leads to increased facial fat. They also stay in the digestive system for a shorter period contributing to increased feelings of hunger.
Sodium, on the other hand, contributes to bloating and puffiness in different areas of the body including the face.
Sodium contributes to water retention, and that contributes to the heavy feeling you get after eating highly processed foods.
Reduce consumption of processed meats, processed snacks and foods that are high in salt.
