3 ways to refine your face

Do you want to refine your face? Know that you cannot refine just one part of the body. It is indeed not possible to determine on which part of the body you will lose mass when you diet or exercise. You will simply have to adopt a diet and a sport that allows you to slim down in general, including your face. If you are looking for a quick fix, there are a number of specific methods you can try. Be aware that these methods have not been scientifically proven, but that some people claim that they lead to a thinner face. To give the illusion of thinner lines and a better defined jawline, you can also use makeup tricks.


Method 1 of 3: Change your lifestyle

Slim Your Face Step 1

Step 1. Drink more water

If you don't drink enough water, you may be suffering from water retention. According to some sources, water retention leads to a swollen and puffy face. Make an effort to drink more water throughout the day and see if your face looks thinner.

  • Start the day with a tall glass of cold water. Have a glass of water, or a bottle of water, on hand at all times. Take a bottle to work or school and drink throughout the day.
  • If you are not a fan of the taste of water, add lemon, lime or other fruit to flavor it. You could also buy scented water at the supermarket.
  • Stop at each water cooler you pass and take a sip.

Step 2. Reduce your intake of salt and sugar

Salt and sugar can contribute to a puffy face. They actually promote water retention, which is felt on the face. Eat a diet low in sugar and salt.

  • Avoid sweets full of sugar. If you are craving something sweet, go for a piece of fruit, which will be rich in vitamins and nutrients and contain only natural sugars. Avoid sodas, energy drinks, and other sugary drinks.
  • Check the sodium content of processed foods, canned or packaged. Ready-made foods are often loaded with salt. Cook your own meals, instead of frozen meals.
  • Make your choice wisely when dining out, especially fast food. Fast food meals are generally very high in sugar and salt.

Step 3. Don't smoke

Cigarettes could make your face puffy and are very bad for your overall health anyway. Smoking damages the elasticity of the skin, which is visible on the face. Don't start smoking and if you are a smoker, stop smoking.

  • Consult a doctor to quit smoking. If necessary, he will prescribe medication and recommend a withdrawal program. They may also recommend a nicotine replacement to help you with the transition.
  • Be prepared to accept the frustration. It is well known that quitting smoking is difficult and you will feel the effects of quitting.
  • Seek the support of your friends and family. Ask smokers around you not to smoke in front of you. Join a support group, in person or online.

Step 4. Eat a balanced diet

General weight loss will be the best way to slim your face. For this, be sure to eat healthy. Eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, complex carbohydrates and lean meats.

  • Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Add fruit to your meals and snacks whenever you can. Add banana slices to your breakfast cereal or replace your morning snack with a piece of fruit.
  • When it comes to protein, fish is a very good choice. Fish is rich in nutrients and is less fatty than meat. Tuna, salmon, herring and trout are good options, for example.
  • Choose whole grains. Choose bagels, pasta and breads, complete. Prefer brown rice to white rice as often as possible.

Step 5. Cut down on your alcohol intake

Alcohol can also make the face swell and prevent weight loss. If you drink, drink in moderation. Women should not drink more than one glass of alcohol per day, and men no more than two. Avoid activities in which you might be tempted to drink large amounts of alcohol.

Let your friends know that you are cutting back on alcohol. Ask them not to invite you to events where people will drink a lot

Slim Your Face Step 6

Step 1. Refine your nose

It is possible to create the illusion of a thinner face with makeup. You could start by refining your nose for this. Use a powder darker than your skin tone, as well as a concealer with a few shades lighter than your skin. You will also need two small brushes.

  • Draw a thin line on each side of your nose with the dark material, using a small paintbrush.
  • Draw a line along the bridge of the nose with the concealer. Then draw several small lines between your eyebrows.
  • Take another brush and blend in the makeup. Your nose should now look thinner.

Step 2. Redraw your jawline

Make-up will also allow you to reshape your jawline, which will give the illusion of a thinner face as a whole. You will need a powder that is slightly darker than your skin, as well as a brush to apply the product to your face.

  • To start, apply the powder along your jawline, using a brush. This will cause shadows to appear on your face. Your jaw will appear thinner and better defined.
  • Blend the product until it looks natural. Make sure to blend the powder into the rest of your makeup, so no lines are visible.

Step 3. Apply highlighter to your cheeks

Applying highlighter to your cheeks will also help give the illusion of a thinner face. For this you will need a powder darker than your skin and an illuminator slightly lighter than your skin. You will also need an applicator brush and another for blending.

  • With the dark powder, draw a line along the cheek bone. With the brush, blend the product onto your skin.
  • Then, apply blush along this first line. Blend the blush in the same direction as the first product.
  • On top of the blush, apply your illuminator and blend it well.

Step 1. Get enough exercise

To lose weight you will need to be physically active. Establish an exercise program that allows you to lose weight in general. As a result, your body will be slimmer and so will your face.

  • Endurance disciplines, such as brisk walking, jogging, swimming or cycling, should be included in your daily life. Pick an activity you like, so you don't get discouraged.
  • Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate cardiovascular activity per week or 75 minutes of more vigorous exercise.

Step 2. Stretch after your workout

After a good workout, stretch. This will prevent you from having curvature later. Stretch major muscle groups after allowing your body to cool down, at the end of a run, swim, or bike session.

  • Stretch all of the major muscle groups, such as your legs, arms, shoulders, and back. Hold each stretch for about 30 seconds, while breathing deeply.
  • As you stretch, you will feel tension in your muscles. It is totaly normal. However, if you have pain, it is because you are pulling too much on the muscle.

You will also need to incorporate strength training into your exercise routine. By building your muscles, you will increase their lean mass and thus burn calories more efficiently.

  • You can do weight training indoors, on machines or with dumbbells. You can also do weight training at home, without any weight other than that of your body.
  • Exercise a major muscle group two to three times a week.
  • Be careful not to exercise the same muscle group two days in a row.
