In addition to being beautiful, a full face is a great asset for aging well. A thin face makes people look older, while apple cheeks are associated with youth.

However, if a full face is the result of genetics or excess weight, it can be annoying – there are no clothes for chubby cheeks.

Some tricks like great camera angles and contouring (#MakeupMagic) can be a quick fix. But if you want a more permanent sculpted cup, a lifestyle change can help.

Try these eight science-backed ways to get rid of fat on your face (and the rest of your body). #Promotion

  1. Water is the way
    Get these eight bottles every day! A 2008 study found a strong correlation between drinking more water and losing weight. Make sure to drink a glass of water before snacking because we often mistake hunger for thirst.

In another 2008 study, 62 percent of participants said they were either “uncomfortable” with being thirsty or hungry. Some of these responses were eating when hydration was needed, leading to unnecessary calorie consumption.

Some small studies have shown that people who drink water before meals consume fewer calories, but larger sample sizes are needed.

A small 2007 study found that drinking half a liter of water (especially cold water) boosted participants’ metabolism by 24 percent for one hour.

Because when we drink cold water, our body has to make a little effort to heat it to body temperature. More studies with larger samples are needed in this area.

Drinking water can help reduce facial swelling and puffiness, as proper hydration reduces fluid retention.

  1. Get your heart rate up
    Cardiovascular exercise is a great way to lose weight on your face and elsewhere. Cardio raises your heart rate, makes you breathe harder than normal, and usually causes you to sweat a little.

Cardio intensity can be low, medium or high. The more intense and longer you exercise, the more calories you burn.

If you’re short on time, try high-intensity interval training. Studies show that it can burn more calories than regular cardio of the same length.

For example, try running or cycling as fast as you can for 1 minute, then slow down to an easy pace for 3 or 4 minutes. For a mega calorie burn, alternate between at least 15 or 20 minutes of intensity.

Professional advice:
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, you need 2.5 to 5 hours of moderate-intensity exercise or 1.25 to 2.5 hours of vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise per week to make significant changes in your weight.

If gym memberships and elliptical machines aren’t for you, don’t despair. There are many ways to get cardio, such as dancing, swimming, roller skating, rock climbing, cycling, canoeing, karate classes, and more.

Doing cardio that you really enjoy will make it more likely that you’ll do it regularly and for a longer period of time.

  1. Ditch the booze
    Alcohol is an inflammatory agent, and when mixed with sugary ingredients and carbonated substances, it can cause bloating, gas, fluid retention, and inflammation. All this leads to swelling of the face. Plus, the calories in alcohol add up quickly.

Alcohol also causes dehydration, which means your body will try to retain fluids. This can cause swelling – especially in your face.

Cutting down on your alcohol consumption can go a long way in helping you trim your face and other weight loss goals. It’s also an easy way to save a few bucks, amiri?

  1. Rest is best
    Getting up early in the morning increases the likelihood of eating at night. A 2017 study found a link between an after-dinner snack and weight gain.

Late-night snacking not only increases your intake, but also messes with your body’s circadian rhythm. This is associated with weight gain even without consuming extra calories.

If you don’t get enough sleep, your body produces more of the stress hormone cortisol, which slows down your metabolism and increases your appetite.

Unfortunately, sleep deprivation is common for most of us. Drinking caffeine in the afternoon and evening, not getting enough bright light during the day b

sodium causes fluid retention, which can cause puffiness and swelling in your face and other areas. Reducing your sodium intake can slim your face.

The easiest way to reduce your sodium intake is to eat less processed foods. According to a 2017 study, Americans get about 70 percent of their sodium intake from foods they eat outside the home, including packaged foods and restaurant meals.

So ditch the chips and frozen dinners and try making your own fresh, delicious meals.

  1. Sucking on the chin and cheeks
    There is limited data on the effectiveness of facial exercises for facial contouring. But since there are no side effects, why not give it a try?

Anecdotal research suggests that facial exercises can tone and tone facial muscles, reduce facial fat, and generally lead to a slimmer appearance.

One small study showed that twice daily facial muscle exercises for 8 weeks increased muscle tone and improved facial rejuvenation.

Common facial exercises include smiling for a few seconds while clenching your teeth, pursing your lips and moving them back and forth on either side of your face, and blowing air from cheek to cheek.

  1. Sayonara, sugar
    No weight loss plan is complete without cutting back on calories, especially refined carbohydrates (such as sugar). Refined carbohydrates are found in foods such as pasta, rice, bread, cookies, crackers, chips, sugary drinks, most baked goods, and packaged snacks.

These foods are low in nutrients and can cause your blood sugar to spike, which encourages your body to store fat.

Instead, choose foods that are high in fiber, such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and legumes. Lean meats and dairy products are healthier alternatives to refined carbohydrates.

Reducing your sugar intake can help you control your appetite, improve your appetite, and reduce the urge to overeat.
