The shape of the neckline can make or mar how it makes your face appear. A high-neck design will make the face appear rounder while a wider cut that highlights the neck and cheekbone can create the impression of a slimmer face.
Your face is affected by the way you sit, stand and walk. Slouching or slumping in a couch can make your facial muscles sag and create the appearance of a bloated face not to mention a dull look. Sitting erect and standing or walking upright with your gaze right in front of you can prevent the tissues in your face especially around the chin and neck from becoming weak.
Any kind of physical movement, whether it is running or working out at the gym will produce visible effects in your body as well as on your face. Losing weight from the body will also contribute to toning the muscles of the face. As a healthy practice, regular exercise can bring an unmistakable glow to your face and exude confidence no matter what the shape of your facial features.
Many types of medication can cause water retention in the face, making your features look fleshy and bloated. Whether you are taking prescription drugs or any over-the-counter medication, it is important to check if any of these are causing any side-effects that show up on your face. Once you identify the cause, you can consult with your doctor or a medical practitioner to consider alternative treatments.
The height of your pillow can contribute to how much fluids accumulate in your face, especially around the eyes and cheeks. If you head is not too high or on level with your body, it could be causing your face to appear bloated. Adjust the height of your pillows by using a thicker pillow or adding another pillow to the existing one.
Your face is exposed to the elements more than most other parts of the body. The weather, pollution and even the soap you use to wash your face can make the skin of your face sag or lose its firmness. Pamper your face once a week at least by using clay mask or some other natural facial treatment to tone the skin and improve your complexion.
Ever heard of beauty sleep? It’s one of the key lifestyle habits you need to incorporate to maintain the shape, size and beauty of your face. Sleeping well for about 8 hours is important to make your face appear slimmer. When you are well rested, your body functions better which means it becomes more efficient in flushing out toxins from your system including your face.
