4 Facial Exercises to Reduce Face Skin Fat [That Don’t Involve Cardio, Diets or the Gym]

“How do you lose weight in your face?” – it’s a common question that doesn’t seem to have an easy answer. At least, not one that doesn’t involve horrible diets, cardio or gym sessions. If you value your time and enjoy your lifestyle, here are 4 facial exercises to reduce skin and face fat.

Everyone carries and stores fat in different ways.

If the first signs of putting on a few pounds, or going through a stressful period in your life, is extra fat around your neck, jawline and cheeks then you’re naturally feeling frustrated.

It’s not possible to hide your face from the world forever (even if the pandemic is keeping you inside more often than not), so what’s the solution?

While there are a range of lifestyle factors that have been shown to assist with losing weight in your face – like cutting back on sodium, dialing up the cardio, and putting more vegetables and whole grains in your diet – these are all treating the symptoms, not the cause.

Unless you can work on slashing face fat and refining your facial features to appear slimmer, you’ll keep running into the same frustrations over and over.

Enter Face Yoga.

If you’ve spent any time on our blog or exploring the Face Yoga application, then you’ll already know how effective this modern spin on an ancient art is. But today we’re going to get granular.

Read on for the 4 best ways to lose fat in your face.

Reduce Skin Fat Exercise #1 – Cheek Puff

Dealing with chubby cheeks?

We get it, it’s frustrating waking up to a rounded face that just won’t slim down. So, how do you lose weight in your face?

With the ‘Cheek Puff’ facial exercise.

Step One: Puff out your cheeks like you were holding a mouthful of water

Step Two: Hold the air in your cheeks for 10 seconds

Step Three: Swish the air from left to right for 10 seconds like you were transferring water from side to side

Step Four: Form your mouth into a rigid ‘O’ shape when you release the air

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 5 to 10 times

This Face Yoga exercise is so effective because it increases blood circulation in the muscles around your cheeks. The combination of improved circulation (and the nutrients it brings + toxins it removes) as well as activating cheek muscles that haven’t got a workout will help shed your excess cheek fat and leave you with gorgeous, glowing cheeks that don’t look puffy and swollen.

Reduce Skin Fat Exercise #2 – Chin Lifts

You’ve heard of deadlifts, now it’s time for chin lifts!

Despite how this simple facial exercise sounds, you won’t be lifting weight with your chin. Instead, you’ll be raising your chin to stretch your neck and eliminate fat from underneath your chin (we’re talking about the unflattering ‘turkey neck’ here).

Step One: Tilt your head upwards and stretch your neck as much as you can (comfortably, of course)

Step Two: Try to pull your lower lip up and over your top lip (don’t worry if you feel strong resistance, that means the exercise is working)

Step Three: Hold this tension for 10 seconds, making sure to stay focused on activating the muscles of your neck and feeling their tension

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 5 to 10 times

This pose helps target your entire lower face, with the movement shedding excess fat around your chin, smoothing out your neck and leaving you looking slimmer.

Reduce Skin Fat Exercise #3 – Cheekbone Lift

Some face fat is necessary (as unbelievable as that may sound) to help keep your facial features shaped and smooth. 

Without the right face fat you can quickly end up with sunken features that make you look old, tired and drained (even when you’re none of those things).

Then again, some fat – especially when it ends up on your cheeks – is always unwelcome. Use the ‘Cheekbone Lift’ to help lose fat off your face and provide a natural cheekbone lift to make you look younger.

Step One: Place two fingers on your cheeks (with your hands pointing up)

Step Two: Gently lift the skin upwards

Step Three: While lifting your skin, form a taut ‘O’ shape with your mouth

Step Four: Hold this tension for 10 seconds

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 2 to 5 times

The more you practice this Face Yoga pose, the more shape and definition you’ll enjoy along your cheekbone.


Reduce Skin Fat Exercise #4 – Neck Roll

“Neck fat “

Those words alone are enough to make you cringe, and if you’re struggling with excess weight on your neck it can feel impossible to slim down no matter how many diet shakes you drink or treadmill trips you take.

So here’s a more effective way to lose weight in your neck.

Step One: Find a comfortable seated position and sit with your back straight

Step Two: Hang your head forwards and roll it in a clockwise direction

Step Three: Continue rolling your neck until you’ve completed a full circle

Step Four: Repeat in an anti-clockwise direction

Repetitions: Repeat this facial exercise 5 to 10 times

This is one of the most effective exercises to reduce neck fat and eliminate double chins, and all it takes is a comfy seat on your couch and a spare 15 minutes – how easy is that!
