While people are conscious about obesity and do everything from dieting to the gym for losing body fat, facial fat is something that’s ignored generally.
If you are one of the people who have a slim body but chubby cheeks and a high fat content in your face, you don’t have to opt for any medical procedure to rectify the situation. Doing some facial exercises on a regular basis can help you achieve that slim face you’ve always thought of having.
Here are some proven yoga exercises that will give you a perfect jawline with no chubby cheeks or double chin.
1. The Smiling Fish
This is the easiest exercise on the list. The steps are as follows:
- Push your lips together as hard as you can, and suck your cheeks in with all your might
- Try to smile while holding the pose
- Hold on to the pose for 5 to 7 seconds
Do 10 repetitions of the exercise regularly to get the best results.
2. Chin Lifts
This yoga exercise is designed exclusively for people who have a double chin problem. Here’re the steps of this exercise:
- Move your head upwards and gaze at the sky
- With your head up, pull your lips as tightly together as you can
- Keep the pose for 10 seconds
Doing up to or above 10 reps daily can help solve the double chin problem. The thing to be noted is that you have to use only your chin muscles and none of the other facial muscles.
3. The Cheek Exercise
This workout is designed to help you get rid of excessive cheek fat. It has just three simple steps.
- Close your mouth, press your lips together and blow air for ten seconds
- Move the pressure of the air to the left cheek with your mouth completely shut and hold it for 10 seconds
- Repeat the step with the right cheek
Do 10 to 15 repetitions of the exercise daily.
4. Enhanced Cheek Exercise
Seemingly similar to the other cheek exercise, this one gives even better results. It’s simple and can be done easily. The steps of the exercise are:
- Inhale as deeply as you can, via your mouth
- Now fill air into your mouth
- Close your mouth so that the air can’t escape at all
- Move the air in your mouth from one cheek to the other exactly as you do with the mouthwash
Do 15 repetitions of the exercise daily.
Doing makeup or drawing contours is not the right thing to do about your face. The other options are reconstructive surgeries that cost thousands of dollars and can still have negative effects.
These simple exercises can help you lose facial fat without having to spend any money.
