How Can I Reduce Face Fat?

How Can I Reduce Face Fat?

Excess fat on the face is caused by weight gain on the rest of your body. There is no one exercise that reduces face fat, but there are a combination of things that you can do to increase your rate of burning fat and eventually slim down your face. Keep in mind that making changes to your lifestyle can help you lose not just the fat on your face but also other problem areas. Here are some pointers to consider:

Increase your cardio

Overall weight loss will have a slimming effect on your face. To get started, you need to consider adding more physical activity to your daily routine. Brisk walking, running or jogging, aerobics training, resistance training, and swimming are some examples of cardio exercises you can do to increase your heart rate and effectively burn fat and calories. Combining aerobics and resistance training may be more helpful with reducing your weight and face fat in general. When you start losing weight, other people may initially notice through your face, as it is typically among the first areas to slim down.

Minimise bloating

Consuming high-sodium foods can cause dehydration and prompt your body to retain water. This can result in water retention in your face, making you look puffy and bloated. Keep in mind that consuming these foods could also lead to weight gain. They also contain empty calories, which provides no nutritional value to you. Processed foods are the biggest salt villains. If you are an avid snacker, try switching to healthier options such as mixed nuts, whole wheat pretzels and fruit.

Reduce alcohol consumption

Reducing your alcohol consumption will in turn improve your overall health. According to the NHS, the average wine drinker in England takes in around 2000kcal from alcohol every month. Drinking 5 pints of lager a week adds up to 44,200kcal over a year, which is equivalent to eating 221 doughnuts. Cutting back on the alcohol will help reduce face fat and improve your general health.

Practice healthy habits

Keep yourself hydrated, improve your diet and get more sleep. These may be simple actions to becoming healthier but they are also helpful in reducing face fat and keeping your weight in check.
