If you’re like most people, then your goal is to look as young as possible. You may be getting older, but that doesn’t mean you need to look it. There are plenty of things you can do in your diet and lifestyle to help stem the tide of time and preserve your youthful appearance — one of these is by correcting imbalances in your body’s hormones, but we’ll talk more about that later. For now, check out these 8 simple ways to lose face fat and look years younger:
1. Treat your body right to lose face fat
The secret to getting your body in tip-top shape is to eat well, exercise regularly, and get plenty of sleep. Sleep is important because your body heals itself when you’re sleeping. Also, your body releases growth hormones when you’re sleeping. These growth hormones are important for losing weight and building muscle. To stay lean and strong, balance out your meals with plenty of vegetables and lean protein. Even a side salad from time to time can help you feel full and satisfy your appetite. To keep your metabolism revved, sleep well during your waking hours. When you sleep, your body produces even more cytokines, tiny proteins that help activate cell signaling pathways, meaning you’re more alert when you wake up. Eating foods rich in vitamins A, D, E and K, as well as omega-3 fats, can all help keep you young as you age. While the term is not as common these days in diet culture, torching calories can still be effective for fat loss. This strategy pairs well with a healthy diet, which helps you weight without sabotage by relying only on quantity.
2. Avoid these foods to reduce face fat
Here are some foods that can help reduce face fat:
1. Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli also contain indoles, which are potent plant compounds that may inhibit the growth of new fat cells.
2. Avocados contain alpha-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A has been found to reduce fat levels in the body.
3. Pumpkin seeds have a high amount of zinc, an important trace mineral. Studies show zinc may boost metabolism and reduce abdominal fat.
4. Have a heart-healthy diet. Foods like quinoa, kale, salmon, sardines and eggs have heart-healthy omega-3 fats; they’re also a great source of vitamin B12. B12 is a vitamin responsible for converting food into energy in the body.
5. Good sources of vitamin D include eggs, salmon, tuna and the butter from butter. Vegetarian diets are recommended as an important way to up your intake of vitamin D.
6. Ginko (basil) is a great source of the antioxidant sulforaphane, which aids sulfur absorption in the body and may reduce inflammation.
7. Conserve carbs. Complex carbs play a vital role in enhancing weight loss by promoting fullness and slowing the absorption of sugar and processed foods. 8. Fill up on fiber-rich plants like kale and collard greens. Fiber is an important nutrient that promotes regularity and gut health.
3. Boost your energy with this natural energy drink recipe
I’m always on the hunt for natural energy drink recipes. I’ve tried a lot of them, but I think my favorite is this lemonade hibiscus energy drink. It’s so refreshing and hydrating, and it has just the right amount of caffeine to give me that little extra boost I need to get through the day.Collagen is one of the major protein building blocks in your body and is produced by your muscles and connective tissue. It helps maintain the flexibility and elasticity of skin, bones and cartilage, as well as being a key component of hair, nails, heart disease and hair loss. Wholesalers who sell collagen supplements often say that it can increase your confidence and that it makes you feel fresh. It’s possible that if you’ve been dealing with body image issues, eating meat, dairy, eggs and/or beans and collagen can help you feel better about your body.
As part of building muscle, a common suggestion is to consume a protein shake. Such a shake contains beef, soy, whey, eggs, plus a mixture of fast- and slow-digesting carbohydrates and fat for that ultimate post-workout boost. There’s nothing wrong with this — you get a great amount of protein, a variety of nutrients including carbs, fat and protein. However, there are usually problems with protein shakes. First, protein shakes are chock full of ADDED sugars, such as corn syrups to sweeten the deal. Second, a recent study in Environmental Research concluded that protein shakes aren’t all that helpful for muscle building because they not only don’t invest in the quality of ingredients necessary for a mystery protein to stimulate muscle growth, but they also don’t provide enough energy for the workout full of added sugars and excess calories. This in combination with removing the possibility of getting lean simply by consuming the shakes might be the best reason to stick with whole, natural sources of protein (that don’t add tons of sugar).
If you’re looking for something besides a protein shake to give you a post-workout boost, try these tasty recipes to get the job done.
4. Exercise to lose face fat
There are 3 types of fat to lose: visceral fat, subcutaneous fat, and face fat. Visceral fat is the fat that’s wrapped around your organs. Subcutaneous fat is the fat under your skin.
Face fat is the fat around your cheeks, chin, and jawline. To lose face fat, you need to improve your diet.Reverse dieting isn’t necessary, and it rarely works, but it can help reverse the progress gained from years of excess weight gain. If you’re overweight but have been relatively sedentary, an efficient, high-intensity interval training program can help burn some serious calories. Before starting an exercise program, seek medical advice to assess your risk for injury and ensure you’re ready to safely take on exercise. To lose fat around your stomach, take beta blockers before starting an intense regimen. Taking a beta blocker before exercise isn’t necessary and may actually work against you, because your heart will need to work harder to keep your heart rate and blood pressure at a level appropriate for your hormone levels. To lose fat around your thighs, foam roll before doing intense squats or deadlifts. Foam rolling boosts blood flow and blood flow to your muscles, which makes your muscles appear more plump. When foam rolling, remember to work your knees and hips to make rolling easier. Working the muscles around your waist and lifting weights is an excellent fat-loss strategy, but they don’t work for everyone. For best results, see a doctor if you’re injured or have certain health conditions to ensure your fat-loss efforts are appropriate. Severe thyroid problems, diabetes, pregnancy, breast cancer, and neurological disorders can all negatively affect your thyroid, so it’s important to receive appropriate thyroid screening prior to starting any exercise program. What about meditation and movements? Meditation, self-awareness, and breathing exercises have all been shown to be beneficial for helping with weight loss and body composition changes. Try doing a simple breathwork or focusing on your breath as it goes in and out of your nostrils for 30 seconds. Put on a simple headband with a wide-brimmed hat.
5. Do these exercises for a tighter face
To get a tighter face, try these exercises.
1. Side bends: Tilt your head sideways and then bend it in the other direction in a slow, controlled manner. Repeat in both directions.
2. Jowls: Tilt your head to the side and then down in a slow, controlled manner. Repeat in both directions.
3.Cheek flabs: Raise your chin to the side and tuck the bottom of your chin in while keeping your bottom lip depressed. Again, gently lift your chin and tuck your bottom lip in.
4. Cheek extractions: Use your hands to gently massage the area around your cheek.
5. Under chin raise: Raise your head up and look straight ahead while pressing your chin into your chest. This builds facial dimples and balances your chin. When you take a break, gently bend down and take a breath. Continue with this exercise 30 seconds.
6. Lip tucks: Let your lips curl a bit and spread slightly while sucking in a hard breath. This tucks the lip tap into the upper lip. Suddenly, hold this position for 2–3 seconds and hold for “out of breath” 3 exhales. Discorporate into your day as often as you need to maintain this.
7. Head massage: Place your hands under your hair and use gentle massage. It should feel as if your scalp is being carefully massaged.
8. Examine your face: Wear an arrow in your upper lip to check for more details. 9. Eye makeup remover: Use a small amount of eye makeup remover on dampened eyes. Usually, you won’t need to use this on your eyes because you’re already drying them out with liquid liner. But if your eyes need extra help, try this! 10. Soften: Apply a natural soothing facial oil to tug gently at dry areas.
11. Eye masks: Buy eye masks. They’re here to help you look younger, even if you already look young.
12. Sunscreen: Wear sunscreen. I forgot to mention this, but there’s no way around it — you’re going to need protection from the sun to look younger.
