Many of you may envy Angelina Jolie for her perfectly sculpted cheekbones or Johnny Depp for his sharply defined jaw line.
This is not to say that fuller faces are undesirable. Many people love the look of a fuller face that is healthy and has a natural glow to it.
However, there is a difference between a healthy, plump face and one that is storing excess fat. When it is the latter, you need to buckle down and address the situation.
If you are generally overweight and concerned about the weight on your face, you need to start working out. Your facial fat may disappear with the rest of your body fat.
However, it might not be as simple for everyone. Many of you may find that no matter how hard you try, you are unable to lose the fat on your face, especially the fat that settles in your cheeks and gives you a bloated appearance.
Some people are just predisposed to accumulating facial fat. Many times, it is just in your genes, and many times, your biological makeup just chooses certain areas of your body and decides these target areas would cling to fat most dearly.
Well, it’s hard luck, but not all hope is lost. You can still take steps to tone your face and give it the shape you desire.
Here are some exercises you can perform to get rid of chubby cheeks and lose facial fat fast.
This exercise is a popular component of face-yoga routines. It especially targets the fat that accumulates around the cheeks.
It is particularly effective for those who are aging and tend to attract facial fat, too. In such people, the facial tissues that would otherwise sag and make the face look thin collect on top of the facial fat, and make the face look excessively chubby.
This exercise also promotes blood circulation to the cheeks, flushing them with a red hue and making them appear youthful.
After a few days of performing this exercise, your mid-face will tighten up and appear more chiseled.
This exercise targets the muscles around your lips and your cheekbones, moving them around, making them work and gradually thinning them down. It elongates the facial muscles and tightens them.
It may take a little while to feel comfortable with this exercise but, when performed regularly, it is one of the most effective ways of eliminating facial fat.
This is an easy and wonderful exercise for tightening the cheekbones by pulling them and elongating the facial muscles to stimulate and tone them.
This is a reverse method to the previously described exercise, and requires you to work your facial muscles in the opposite direction.
By blowing your cheeks outward, you further stimulate the facial muscles, allowing them to expand and churn the fat that has been sitting idle around the apples of your cheeks.
This exercise requires you to gently push your cheeks back and smile to spread out the muscles and exercise the fat to banishment.
The stretch should be gentle, in order to prevent aggravating and intensifying any wrinkles that may be forming. The smile will further lift those cheeks up and tone the jaw and cheekbones.
This exercise also flexes your facial muscles and spreads them out. This stimulates the fat and exercises it away.
One of the worst affected points when fat accumulates on the face is the area where your chin and neck merge. A double, often triple, chin is one of the most undesirable fats and a clear sign of unhealthy fat buildup.
This exercise stimulates and works the muscles in the chin and shapes your jaw.
This exercise stretches the jaw and pulls the chin muscles in, working them hard and exercising the flab, gradually decreasing it.
This is a great exercise that engages your entire head and puts it to work, targeting your chin and jaw area.
This exercise, when performed regularly, effectively reduces the fat in the chin area and stretches and tones the chin muscles for a firmer under-jaw.
It also stimulates blood circulation and gives you more energy to keep at your workout.
Since these aren’t excessively strenuous exercises, you can perform any of these as many times as you like each day. If you are so inclined, you can also chalk out a routine combining some or all of these exercises to perform at a specific time of the day.
