Being called “chubby cheeks” can be cute back when you were a toddler but if you are already in your teens or older it can cause a bit of a self-esteem issue. There are many reasons why you have double chin or a chubby face – it can be because you are overweight or have loose muscle.
The best way to lose fat in your face and other parts of your body is eating healthily. First is avoiding eating refined carbohydrates and sugar. Refined carbohydrates include white bread, muffins or most packaged cereals; potato chips and other junk food are also empty calories that you should avoid or at least eat in moderation.
Large salt intake can cause water retention, which can make you look bloated, so avoid salty and processed food. Drink a lot of water and fruit juice to keep you hydrated and to flush out toxins and extra salt from your body. This will result in better skin tone and texture. Food rich in calcium like dairy products can help in losing weight faster and prevent too much water retention in the body. Just choose those low carb milk, yogurt and cheese to add to your diet.
You should also look at some medications you are taking because those may cause water retention, which causes your double chin or fat face. If your illness is not that serious, like colds and a runny nose you could just drink water and take Vitamin C.
As always, exercise is the best way to lose those fats. Cardiovascular exercises like walking, jogging, and climbing the stairs are effective ways to lose those excess fats. You need to couple these cardio exercises with machine exercise to develop and maintain lean muscle. You could enroll in a gym and use those dumbbells and exercise machines. This will give a faster and higher metabolism and this will result in faster weight lose. This will also firm up your skin and prevents it to sag while losing weight.
A balanced diet and exercise can also contribute to a more beautiful and youthful looking skin so you not only have a smaller face but also a glowing skin.
