Chubby cheeks and a dimple chin might be adorable during childhood but not thereafter as we all crave for high cheekbones, flawless skin and the perfect symmetry. Each of us secretly wish to exchange some of our features to stay beautiful and work hard for a chic body. Some focus on flat abs, some on curvy hips, muscular arms and few others wish to lose face fat. There are specific exercises for reducing desired body parts such as crunches for abs, lifting weights for your arms and so on. But is it even possible to lose face fat?
Fat in your Face
Face fat is generally the result of excess weight gain, but it can also be due to genes. While some carry excess fat around their abdomen or thighs you might be one of those rare ones who carry it on your face! Generally, it is due to overconsumption of fats, carbs or salt that one starts developing a puffy face. You face is no exception and it acts like every other feature in your body. Once you start leading an unhealthy lifestyle and eat improper foods, your face too starts gaining fat just like other parts of your body.
Lose it or Spruce It!
After a weight loss program, we hear positive comments on our body but most comments that we receive regarding our facial looks are negative. People feel sorry for our deflated cheeks and even wish that we had not lost any fat on our face. So indeed, losing fat on your face is possible and it is good. Just like how good and bad balance this earth, we do have some bad news to balance this good news. It is possible to lose face fat, but you cannot specifically target weight loss in this area.
With this, I guess most of you reading through would have guessed the best way to lose face fat. Yes, its by losing overall excess body weight and leading a healthy lifestyle. In this journey, please don’t focus completely on cutting down calories as this might land you only with muscle loss and not fat loss. It’s always better to rely on a well-balanced meal that meets your nutrient requirements as well as focuses on controlling portion sizes. Complement this with increased water intake, decreased junk intake and plenty of sleep.
Exercising is the best way to lose face fat but don’t overdo it. You might land up with a sagged face. Balance strength training and cardio workouts along with your regular ones to bring your total body weight to a healthy one.
Apart from this, there are many popularly known simple exercises that people believe in and definitely worth a try!
