Here are some tried and tested diet suggestions and face workouts on how to lose face fat and make all that dieting count.
Diet tips: how to reduce Face Fat
While there are so many diet plans available, and looking at it logically, anything that helps loose fat from the body will help loose fat from the face too. However its not always in proportion. With some diet plans, the face starts to appear weak and dull, and the body does not seem to change, and with some others, you need to tell people that you have lost weight, while your face tells a different tale. Here are some diet tips that are sure to reduce facial fat.
1. Drinking a lot of water
This is probably the rule number one of every diet in the world. Water flushes away the toxins, which are little molecules surrounded and supported by fat. As water washes them out, the fat cells attached to them become free to be eliminated from the body. Maintaining a water intake of 10 glasses a day will keep those toxins away and thus the fat.
2. Reduced salt and sugar
Both salt and sugar are destructive when it comes to face fat. While salt makes your muscles retain water, sugar stores fat. So whatever diet plan you follow, limit the intake of salt to only what is necessary for the electrolyte balance of the boy, and reduce the sugar as much as possible.
3. Include fruits and vegetables rich in fiber
Fruits and vegetables rich in fiber, promote faster metabolism, which in turn burns fat faster and helps chisel those chubby cheeks. Include mid meal snacks in the form of fruits and salads, to cut the face fat while adding glow to the skin.
4. Right Kind of Oils
Including a spoonful pure coconut/sesame/olive cold pressed oil or desi ghee in your diet, has a fat burning effect on your body. It is so effective that even massaging the face with a few drops of these oils daily before bedtime helps to lose face fat.
5. Portion Control
Needless to mention for the dieters, you have to limit your calorie intake from 1000-1500 calories per day depending on your weight. Choose food that is low in calories and rich in nutrients that will help burn that stored fat below those cheeks and chin, and provide nourishment to skin and body.
Face Workout: How to lose face fat
Nothing can be toned without working out the muscles, especially the face. The face muscles loosen with age and leads to sagging skin.

2. Cheek Twist
Breathe in from your mouth and trap that air within your cheeks. Now try to push the air to one cheek and then another. Repeat this passing 20 times and then hold the air in each cheek for 15 seconds. Release and repeat 10 times.

3. Fish Face
It is another super exercise to reduce fat from face, especially below the cheek. Suck your cheeks in, and hold for 20 seconds. Resist the urge to give in to the resistance by your cheeks and repeat 10 times.
4. Pronouncing “A” “O”
Pronounce a long “A” with the widest smile and then an elongated “O” while bringing the lips as forward as possible. Hold the position for 3 seconds each time and repeat 50 times.
