Exercise – Does it make you lose weight on your face-part 2

First read Exercise – Does it make you lose weight on your face-part 1 and then continue to read this…
Follow these simple practical ways while exercising or dieting:
1. Exercise moderately and regularly:
Begin your weight-losing program with a 10 minute brisk walk. Increase it gradually. This way, you won’t feel tired. More important, your face will look fresh!
2. Firm up neck, chin and face: These simple exercises keep the skin firm and prevent 3 key spots - neck, chin, face – from sagging when weight is lost. These can be done before or after your exercises or walk.
Neck: Turns: Stand straight. Turn neck until your face is over your left shoulder. Next, turn neck until your face is over your right shoulder. Repeat 10 times.
Up and down: Move head back until you are looking up at the ceiling. Next, move your head down until you’re looking at the floor. Repeat 10 times. In that position, open your mouth as widely as you can and shut it. Do it 10 times.
Chin: Open-close mouth: Move head back until you’re looking up at the ceiling. In that position, open your mouth as widely as you can and shut it. Do it 10 times.
Face: Vowel shaping: Say “A” silently and exaggeratedly 5 times. Follow with E, I, O, U. Finally run all 10 fingers over your head, neck and shoulders in a gentle massage to relax any tension trapped in the exercised muscles.
4. Take water breaks: Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water daily. Water keeps the muscles and capillaries under your skin “plumped up” and you won’t get that dehydrated look.
5. Eat moderately: Plan your diet to include nutritious good, avoiding junk and high-calorie food. Don’t skip meals. Neither feast nor fast – eat right.
6. Sleep soundly: Sleep well for at least 8 hours to prevent bags under your eyes giving you an ‘old-tired’ look. Also don’t oversleep – it makes the face puffy.
