Everyone wants to look sexy, toned and healthy. This is a great way to feel better about yourself, to make a great impression on the people you meet and to improve your success in romance and in your career. Problem is, not everyone is sure how to go about it. And that’s especially true when you have a specific thing about your appearance that you would like to change. Case in point: you want to lose weight in your face. What can you do?
The Issue With Losing Weight in the Face
The first thing we need to do, is to identify the challenge. Why is it hard to lose weight in face regions? How is this different from losing weight in say, your stomach?
Actually, it’s no different. And this is the problem. You see there is no such thing as ‘targeted’ weight loss. That means that trying to lose weight in face areas is no different from trying to lose weight around the stomach.
And when you start exercising and dieting, there is no guarantee that the weight is going to be coming off your face first. The order in which you lose weight is genetically predetermined. This is why some women can look incredibly slim but still have large breasts, while other women find that they lose their breasts first as soon as they start dieting.
Likewise, you might be a lucky sort who doesn’t gain much weight in your face even when you could stand to lose a few pounds, or you might be carrying all your excess weight in your cheeks.
How to Make Your Face Slimmer
So, with that in mind, what is the best way to go around getting a chiselled jawline and losing those chubby jowls?
The first answer is just to keep exercising until the weight comes away from the face. While it might not happen instantly, eventually it will be your face’s ‘turn’ and you’ll find an ideal body weight at which you can enjoy having slim features. That means that all the usual exercise and diet methods will work just fine to help you lose weight in the face – from HIIT to steady state cardio.
At the same time though, something you can do is to tone and build the facial muscles. Don’t be fooled by some of the ridiculous facial exercises that people recommend online but know that strengthening up the jaw muscles can result in a pronounced difference. The best way to improve this then is by chewing – so consider taking up a habit of chewing gum.
Exercising will also have effects throughout the body. So even if you focus mainly on curling biceps, the anabolic response will result in a little more tone for those facial muscles too.
Finally, if you can’t stand carrying that excess weight around the face any longer and you just want to look slimmer immediately, consider having a go at contouring. This makeup technique is an option for men and women and it can immediately make you look more defined.
