How To Slim Your Face Naturally

 

 

Sometimes the fullness of your face is not about weight loss. There are other factors that can contribute to a puffy face. When weight loss is the issue there are also things you can do if your face is not the first place you lose weight. Here are a few things I have tested and found to be helpful:

Massage: Massage is great for both toning the muscles in your face as well as flushing out excess fluid. There are parts of our face that store more than others. A lot of this has to do with lymph drainage. If your face is not as svelte as it used to be whether or not you have gained weight it might be a good idea to look into lymph drainage massage. You can do this at home or have a professional do it. Considering how much this type of massage can accomplish it is takes a surprisingly light touch, so go easy. Like most things it will take a few times to see the results, but you may see a difference right after the first time.

Ruling Out Allergies: This step includes all kinds of allergies, things you would normally look past such as allergies to metals, seasonal allergies, face/skin products. For a while all along my jawline was inflamed, it wasn’t red, but it was bloated somehow. I didn’t know what was going on, I went for a facial and the esthetician mentioned to me  that it was most likely due to an allergy to the metal in my earrings. As soon as I changed my earrings my jawline and lower part of my face returned to normal. I notice now also that seasonal allergies can cause swelling of your face, around your eyes, nose and mouth. Irritants in skin products, makeup and sunscreen can change the appearance of your face looks if you have a bad reaction with it. The thing that is tricky with all of this is that it may not always be accompanied with redness.

Icing Your Face: I started applying an ice cube all around my face once a day and it really makes a difference in bringing down any inflammation. It also helps with acne, redness, and has a firming effect. You can’t really go wrong with this. Just don’t apply for too long in one spot and of course be careful around your eyes.

Watching Salt Consumption: This is I feel pretty well known at this point, but it is repeated so heavily for a reason. If you are eating food containing a lot of sodium it will show up in unwanted ways. The good thing about this is that you can make adjustments quickly and within a few days it will go as quickly as it came.

How I Cleared My Skin

This is something I could talk a while about so I found it to be a good first topic on my Youtube channel. It’s a new channel and it’s my first video, so I invite everyone to watch and see if you pick up any tips or ideas on clearing your skin or just keeping it in good health.

I’ll break it down into just a few short sections for this post and the rest in detail is in the video.

DIET: Foods that aggravate your system aggravate your skin. It doesn’t always mean foods that are high in fat, sugar or salt. Mainly it’s foods that are full of things that aren’t real and aren’t recognized by your body. There’s nothing wrong with eating butter or real sugar! Investigate to see if you have any intolerances/allergies and DO NOT GIVE UP, if you think something is bothering you, you’re probably right.

CHEMICALS: Overwhelming your skin is going to leave it with nothing to do but react intensely and possibly do a few things at once (drying out & breaking out, peeling & getting oily) Take it easy. Don’t treat your skin as harshly as it reacts.

LIFESTYLE: Stress is a big problem. It’s unlikely you’ll be able to rid yourself of it overnight, but do what you can to minimize it as best as possible.

MAKEUP: Even if you think that you’re makeup isn’t clogging your pores try to wear less than you normally would or not wear any on days you don’t need to. I found that the less foundation I wore the less I needed.

PATIENCE: This can be a long process. Whether you’re looking for something to finally clear any last bumps or turning the quality of your skin completely around. It may take time, but if you’re willing to keep trying the results will be more than worth it.

As you can see by the thumbnail of the video I had a couple different things going on in different areas of my face. It was painful and unpleasant to say the least, but everything mentioned in the video was what I did and is advice I’d give to anyone looking to get their skin in check.
