Other simple hacks to avoid having chubby cheeks:
Another reason you can look puffy in the face is your body is holding in too much water. To avoid that you have to watch how much salt and sugar you eat. Fast food, crackers, chips, canned vegetables, and soups shouldn’t be in your diet often.
Instead have some bananas, avocados, oranges, yogurt, spinach, and whole grains. Try to increase your water intake, because when your body doesn’t get enough liquids it feels like it should make some supplies for the future.
Most of these supplies get stored in your cheeks. So get at least 2 liters of water per day to avoid that.
Your face will never look slim and toned if your body doesn’t so try some cardio workout to lose extra fat faster, physical activities like running, walking, cycling & swimming increase your heart rate and speed up your makeover. 20-40 minutes per day should be enough.
If you do cardio at the gym you can also do weights afterward for a stronger effect even if you don’t have a double chin, slouching makes you look as if you do.
