Remove Facial Fat With Yoga

The fat that you have on your cheeks right now is probably ‘baby fat’. It will disappear in a couple of year and your cheeks will begin to look more angular as you age. Although it may seem like a bad thing right now, this fat will actually prevent the formation of excess wrinkles as you age.

How To Remove Chubby Chicks

If you are overweight or obese, you should try to eat healthily and get regular exercise. This will not only help you to lose fat from all over your body but also from your face. One of the best forms of exercise that you can undertake is yoga. This is a holistic, whole body approach that will not only help you to lose weight but will also make your body fit and toned. Yoga is also probably the only form of exercise that uses postures that specifically target the face and neck muscles. In addition, yoga offers many other benefits including increased flexibility, more energy, deeper breathing, sharper concentration, and a calmer mind.

Inverted yoga postures are very beneficial as they increase the circulation of blood to the upper body. By using an inverted posture, you allow the blood to rush naturally to these areas through the force f gravity. The Hala Asana (or Plow pose) increases blood flow to the face and head and can help to boost up a sluggish metabolism. The Sirsha Asana (Headstand) is another posture that is very beneficial for the face. The Sarvanga Asana (Shoulder stand) is another effective yoga technique.

In addition to traditional Yoga poses, you can try a variant of Yoga principles that is specifically designed to tone the face. This is called Face Yoga. It is a fairly recent technique that has been developed by an experienced fitness instructor. Face yoga employs various techniques that tighten and tone the muscles, help reduce chubby cheeks, and reduce the formation of wrinkles.

There are also many makeup techniques that can make your face look more angular than it is. Apply a darker blusher below your cheekbones and a lighter shade on your cheekbones and blend these two shades lightly. This technique will make your face look far more angular. Another way to make your face look angular is to keep an appropriate hairstyle. Choose a blunt, shoulder length cut (preferably layered) that covers the sides of your face. This will mask your chubby cheeks and make your face look angular.
