Author’s Note: While doing research on my article on yoga asanas to reduce belly fat, I uncovered information about certain asanas that are great for slimming the face. After a month of doing them religiously, I have a taut, thin face now. Do give them a try. Here is the link to the asanas to reduce belly fat article I wrote, in case you would like to give them a try.

We all are Keira Knightleys or Angelina Jolies. Only, we don’t realize it due to layers of fat on our faces.

Most of us are so worried about the fat in our body that we forget to notice the fat in our face. But you know what – even that is damaging our looks.

We all know yoga helps us reduce belly fat, and you can also lose weight through yoga. So what can you do to get rid of those flabby cheeks and double chin? Well, there are a number of effective facial exercises – and that’s what this post is all about.

    As a speech pathologist, we are trained to do these exercises with clients who have myofacial difficulties (loss of tone, paralysis, etc). They really do improve use of the facial muscles with consistent use.

    This is such a good alternative to surgery and the consistent use of makeup too. As weird as they exercises look and sound, they are certainly worth a shot. Makeups is temporary fix that is no good to us in the long run and nobody likes knives. Thanks so much. This will certainly help a lot of us.

    Hi Gim, it is always advisable to perform any exercise in moderation with regular intervals of time in between. Anything done in excess may cause harm. Thus always exercise some caution and do not ever over indulge.

  • hannah

    how long does it take for results to show if I am doing the exercises everyday?

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Dear Hannah, any kind of exercise requires patience and persistence. Slimming down or losing weight is a gradual process and does not take place overnight. Practice all the above exercises 3-4 times a day regularly for a couple of months to see the difference.
