1. Reduce stress and get enough sleep

Among the very first things you are advised to do on your weight loss journey is to get enough sleep. Lack of sleep leads to bad eating habits, which bring about a slower metabolism and weight gain. Stress, on the other hand, produces a hormone known as cortisol. Some side effects of this hormone are increased appetite and slower metabolism. This leads to your body storing fat instead of burning it.

So, in order to reduce chubby cheeks, make sure to keep your stress levels low and try to get at least 8 hours of sleep a night.

2. Make sure to have a healthy diet

Weight loss starts in the kitchen and not in the gym. If you do not eat the right things, it does not matter how much you run or lift gym weights. The fat will not go away if you have a poor diet. You need to be conscious of the things that you put into your mouth.

Fitness ambassador and coach, Stuart Pilkington, once said that

"Your body repairs from the inside out and only a diet rich in nutrients and minerals can reduce blemishes, swelling and excess water, all of which give the appearance of a bigger face. Focus on green vegetables and healthy fats such as avocado, almonds and walnuts.”

Refined carbs like cookies, pasta, cakes, burgers and the like are huge culprits in weight gain so you should cut down on them. Whenever you prepare your meals, make sure that your plate is saturated with green vegetables and watch the fat on your face melt away.

3. Overall body weight loss

Some types of cardio are walking, running, hiking, jump rope, swimming, among many others. Just 30 minutes of any of these workouts in a day will help slim your face and body.

4. Remember to hydrate and reduce alcohol

Water is a crucial factor in fat loss. It does not only help in overall body weight loss but also it will help slim your face as well. Regularly drinking water keeps you fuller for longer, thus preventing snacking that leads to fat gain. It also adds the bonus of clearing your skin blemishes.

As you increase your water intake, also remember to reduce your alcohol intake. Alcohol has a lot of empty calories that cause bloating of the face and stomach and eventually will increase your weight leading to a fuller face. The occasional glass is fine, but be careful not to go overboard.

5. Try facial massage

Facial massages help increase blood circulation in the face and get rid of excess facial and cheek fat quickly. You can choose to go to a professional or you can do one to yourself. Tanaka facial massage will help slim down your face and help you look younger too.
