5 Natural Ways to Lose Face Fat and Become Much Prettier

5 Natural Ways to Lose Face Fat and Become Much Prettier

Having excess weight is one of the ways that one’s confidence can easily drop. Young girls who are dealing with weight issues have a lot of other problems they face, such as being bullied at school and thus losing self-confidence at a very young age.

Even adults experience self-esteem problems due to being overweight. Excess weight has effects on not just your body but your face too. It can cause your face to be oily, give you a double chin and bags under your eyes; it can also affect your hair.

There are natural ways that you can lose weight, and in return, your face becomes more structured and more defined. A good diet plan can help you lose weight, not only on your body but on your face too.

Excess weight affects your looks

1. Oily skin and Acne Breakouts

When you are overweight, you tend to experience acne outbreaks. Overweight teenagers are more likely to get acne, and this is linked to the overproduction of sebum – an oily semi-fluid element that is responsible for making our skin and hair softer and lubricated. Excess sebum production in obese people is caused by the overproduction of hormones such as testosterone and estrogen. Eating a lot of fat and sugar also contribute to the excess sebum which leads to an acne outbreak. The link between acne and diet exists, although diet is not the ultimate cause.

2. An Embarrassing Double Chin:

A double chin can be embarrassing no matter how old you are. It is caused by some factors, and excess fat is one of them. A double chin happens when an internal layer of fat sags around the neck area forming a wrinkle.

Foods that are high in saturated fat are the usual suspects for weight gain. Saturated fat causes fat to form around your body because of the raised cholesterol levels which lead to clogged arteries.

3. Hair Loss and Unhealthy hair:

Fatty foods have a direct relationship with how your looks. When you eat food with a lot of sugar, excess sebum gets produced. This not only leads to oily skin but an oily hair too. Your body needs certain vitamins and minerals for healthy hair and skin. Hair needs vitamins A, B, and E; which promote healthy hair and skin. Eating unhealthy foods means you will not get enough of these vitamins. Hormonal imbalance caused by obesity also makes hair start thinning, which leads to hair loss.

4. A Puffy Face

Putting on some weight will be visible in your face as the face tends to stretch. Weight gain means fluid retention and this fluid can decide to sit on your face. As you gain more weight, the body starts to build extra tissue which forms a layer – as can be seen under the eyes and in the neck area.

Your face gives away your health status, according to a study. It gives an indication of what your BMI is, as much as it gives indications on your overall immune system, etc. A healthy BMI sits between 18.5 and 24.9. But for you to look noticeably attractive, the study says your BMI should be 2.5 points lower.

5 Natural Ways to Lose Face Fat

1. Do facial exercises:

When exercising to lose weight you focus on the “problem areas” so if you want your face to also look better after losing weight, you need to focus on the face! Some exercise options exist for losing face fat, and they include cheek lifts, blowing air, fish face, etc. You can do your facial exercises twice a day for about 10 minutes.

2. Have an early breakfast:

When you eat, you tell your body to start converting fat into energy. The metabolic processes speed up once you have eaten, so the sooner your body gets started, the more it will achieve in a day. Having breakfast also means you will most likely have planned meals, so you will not find yourself overeating.

3. Keep hydrated:

If you want to lose face fat you need to drink lots of water. This is to help your body get rid of toxins quicker. Fatty and sugary foods make your face look puffy because of the water retention they cause in your tissues. Even though drinking lots of water will mean a lot of loo visits, it’s totally worth it.

4. Get enough sleep:

Sleeping has many advantages, including preventing weight gain. When you do not get enough sleep (less than seven hours), you are most likely to gain weight because of a drop in leptin and hike in ghrelin. These hormones are responsible for burning calories.

5. Have a diet plan:

Foods low in carbohydrates, high in protein and low in sodium are the way to go. Carbs and sodium absorb water very quickly, so a diet high in these will mean you will become more bloated. Not eating any carbohydrates will visibly shed plenty of pounds caused by water retention. For your muscle, you need to have a protein intake of one-and-a-half to two grams, per pound, per day.

Conclusion

Weight loss does have a correlation with how your face looks but only the right type of exercise and diet plan will lead to good results. Looking at the negative side effects of fat on your face, one can see how less fat will mean less of these side effects and ultimately a more defined, structured face. One can use diet pills that contain natural ingredients and follow some good anti-aging tips. Both will help you to look young and lose that excess weight, combined with exercise and a healthy diet plan.

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
