Ways To Lose Cheek Fat
Reducing your overall body fat
Losing weight overall definitely contributes to a slimmer looking face. Actually if you’ve ever noticed the weight loss of someone else, it’s likely that you would have commented on how slim their face looked!
The optimal way to lose face fat is to make some subtle changes to your weekly exercise and food intake. Consuming fewer calories per day than you burn will help you lose weight consistently (makes sense doesn’t it!).
Many people tend to store fat in the neck, face, and jaw region. If you want to enjoy a slimmer face, then let’s get you started on an overall weight loss program (we’d love to help!)
You may be having chubby cheeks because your body is retaining too much fluid. There are many possible reasons for water retention, and dehydration is one of them. Your body will store excess water when it feels that you are not drinking enough. The extra fluid can go to several body parts, including the face. Aim to drink at least two litres of water a day to keep yourself well-hydrated.
Doing the jaw release exercise
You can get attractive cheekbones with this exercise. It helps stretch the muscles around the cheeks, jaws, and lips. Perform the exercise by standing or sitting straight and moving your jaw like you are chewing something. Make sure to keep your lips closed as you try to chew, and breathe in and out deeply as you hum. Next, open your mouth wide with the tongue pressed on your bottom teeth, and hold it for five seconds before breathing in and out again. The whole movement makes one repetition.
Try the blowing air exercise
This exercise helps solve your chubby cheeks issue by working nearly every neck and facial muscles. It is, in fact, one of the best facial exercises to reduce the chubby cheeks and double chin. It will give your face a natural lift and a leaner appearance. Simply grab a chair and sit with your back straight, and then tilt your head back so that you are facing the ceiling. The next step is to pull in your lips and attempt to blow out air. Do this for several seconds, and then relax.
Exercise and eat healthy
The only way to lose cheek fat is to eat healthy and exercise regularly. Your face will become slimmer as you lose weight. Many people already see results after losing a few pounds. If you commit to a healthy and active lifestyle, those chubby cheeks will eventually become a thing from the past.
Stretch those facial muscles
Use your hands to stretch your facial muscles and tone them. You can do it by lowering your chin until it goes near your chest, and then pulling the skin away from the face. Try to say “ah” as soon as you have stretched your face, and keep the static position for a while before repeating the process. It is recommended that you do the stretching three times a day.
Reduce your salt and sugar intake
Eating foods rich in sodium and sugar will cause water retention. When your body retains excess water, parts of you will become bloated – including your cheeks. You only need a small amount of sodium and sugar a day, so try cutting salty and sugary foods from your diet.
Smiling gives you the chance to exercise those facial muscles and trim down the cheek fat. It is the best workout that you can do for your cheeks. You are also brightening up your and everyone’s day.
