Are you annoyed by your double chin or too round face even though you boast a slim figure? There are ways! Both exercise and certain habits allow you to enjoy a slim face and a healthy appearance.
It probably doesn’t need to be explained to anyone that what we eat affects the way we look. If you want to lose weight on your face, it is worth giving up products rich in sugar and fat in favor of whole grain items and leafy vegetables. If you can’t imagine a meatless diet, opt for lean meat and fish. Add ginger, chilli and rosemary to your favourite dishes to speed up your metabolism.
Cut down on salt and sugar
Sometimes the cause of a too round face can be high water levels in the body. In this case, you will need to dehydrate your body. Excessive consumption of salt and sugar can be the reason for storing a lot of water in the body. So, it is worth to give up these products to slim your face. You can successfully replace salt with aromatic spices based on herbs, and choose fruit instead of sweet snacks.
Drink plenty of water
Sometimes the cause of a puffy face is insufficient hydration of the body. We should provide our body with two liters of water a day. This will improve the condition of our skin and flush out all the toxins that can cause facial puffiness.
Sometimes our face becomes puffy when we are sleep deprived. On average, we should allocate about 8 hours of sleep per night. Then our face looks healthy and rested. It is worth applying lifting and firming masks at bedtime, which will improve facial contour and take care of skin condition.
Do facial treatments
You should take care of your complexion not only at night. Try to use masks and scrubs regularly during the day too. One of the very useful ones is a nourishing banana mask, which you can prepare yourself at home. It is enough to make a paste of one ripe banana, protein and a teaspoon of honey. Applying it every week can bring really great results. If you prefer to leave yourself in the hands of a specialist, you can take advantage of a wide range of facial treatments in beauty salons.
Facial massage – pleasant and useful
Massage plays an invaluable role in improving the appearance of the face. Regular facial massage stimulates blood circulation, which makes the skin more elastic and radiant. For facial massage you can use special rollers, stones or do it with your hands. You can also go to a specialist for it.
