What to eat to lose weight in the face?
To make your face slimmer and stimulate this process, you need to consider a healthy diet. What does it mean ? You can choose any diet, depending on your needs and your general health, but the most important thing is to cut out the added sugars, consume fewer carbohydrates and more fiber. You may think it makes sense to eliminate fat from your diet in order to lose fat in your body, but that’s not entirely correct. This is a myth that can actually hinder your weight loss. It is therefore best to know the subject or consult a dietician. There are healthy fats, such as avocado, salmon, and olive oil, which can be incorporated into your daily menu without any hassle.

Exercises to refine the face
Facial exercises can be used to improve facial appearance, fight aging, and improve muscle strength. In this context, you can try doing facial yoga six times a week. This will increase blood circulation and thus promote the lymphatic system. The result is a supple and firm skin. But if you want to sculpt your face too, add these exercises to your daily routine:
- Inflate your cheeks and push the air from side to side.
- To tone the muscles around your mouth, say X and O in succession as many times as you can.
- Chew a piece of gum for about 10-15 minutes a day to make the double chin disappear.
- To get rid of chubby cheeks, suck your cheeks by pursing your lips for ten seconds and then puffing them up. Repeat this 20 times a day.
- Smile big as you grind your teeth. Hold this position for ten seconds and release. Repeat about 15 times.
- Stretch your neck as you press your tongue against the roof of the mouth. This stretches the muscles under the chin.
- Get a Gua-Sha massage three times a week.
