How to lose weight in the face? Despite what you might read on the internet there is no scientific research study that shows that there are facial exercises that will make you lose weight in your face.

Some of these silly slimming straps and devices on the market that claim to make you lose facial fat are really a bunch of garbage and pseudoscience. You will waste your money if you expect to see results from this garbage.

When you lose body fat you lose it all over your body not in just one place. And the more weight and body fat you lose overall the more that your face will slim down. Your face gets slimmer as your body gets slimmer. But thinking that you can buy some facial gadget that will make you tone your face is a waste of time and money.

The best way to lose weight and bodyfat is through conventional diet and exercise methods. You can’t achieve weight loss without having a caloric deficit. The only way to do that is by how many calories you burn through exercise. As well as how many calories you can consume through diet and nutrition.

The types of cardio that can help burn calories and help you lose weight is:

  • Dancing
  • Jump roping
  • Walking
  • Swimming
  • Gardening
  • Cycling
  • Jogging

If you have a goal of losing weight, then you should allocate 25 to 40 minutes a day of cardiovascular exercise. And do this at least 3 days a minimally and up to 5 days a week.

Strength training allows you to burn calories after the workout and increases your resting metabolic rate. The more lean muscle mass you have the faster your metabolism will be. And this can only happen through resistance training.

Here Are Some Healthy Weight Loss Tips:

  • Body weight-training, dumbbell weights training, resistance bands training and machine weightlifting are considered strength training activities. And you can do this at least 3 days a week.
  • To lose body fat In your face and all over your body you need to be on a balanced healthy diet.
  • That healthy diet should include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes to help you lose and maintain a healthy weight.
  • You need to get enough sleep as studies have shown that people who don’t get up to 8 hours of sleep tend to overeat. Drinking water daily and up to 8 glasses of water per day will help to suppress your appetite and keep you full.
  • Keeping your stress levels at a minimum will help with weight management. And it will help keep you healthy.
  • Increased stress can increase your appetite and cravings making it difficult to lose weight. So, try to keep your stress levels down to a minimal if you can.
  • Limit your intake of processed foods because they are high in calories and high in added sugar and sodium.  It will give you water retention and fluid retention.
  • Obtaining fiber in your diet will help to suppress appetite and cravings. You should aim for 25 to 40 grams of fiber from food sources per day. Fiber is found naturally in seeds, fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and legumes.
  • Be mindful of the number of calories you consume through food daily. An overabundance of excess calories will always lead to someone being overweight or obese based off all scientific research studies.

“When you lose body fat you lose it all over your body not in just one place. Your face gets slimmer as your body gets slimmer.” Celebrity Fitness & Nutrition Expert Obi Obadike

The Bottom Line there is no such thing as spot reduction. Which means you can’t say I want to lose fat in my face, my abs, or my arms. And then do an exercise in that specific body part and expect the fat to go away in that area.

It is best to focus on losing overall body fat and weight. And when that happens then you will lose fat and weight all over your body and your face.
