4 Face Exercises To Get Rid of Chubby Cheeks, Expert Says

While fuller cheeks can be a result of weight gain, they can also be a product of inflammation. Factors like poor diet, dehydration, lack of exercise and sleep, and increased stress can all contribute to chipmunk-like features. The good news? You can start with simple face exercises as you work toward a healthier lifestyle for more dramatic results. We've put together four exercises to get rid of chubby cheeks you should add to your routine ASAP.

As a yogi and a mom in her mid-30s, I can speak from experience that face yoga has quickly become a daily, meditative practice to tone my face muscles and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Need more convincing? A study published in JAMA Dermatology cites that face exercises can improve muscle strength and face appearance along with helping to defy the aging process. Here are the best face massage techniques to get rid of chubby cheeks and achieve defined cheekbones that'll keep you looking young, vibrant, and confident.

Start to warm up and bring blood flow to your face by gently tapping your forehead with your index, middle, and ring fingers on each hand. Continue tapping around the eyes, and slowly make your way down your face toward your jaw. You will tap back and forth in a horizontal motion and tap each area for about 10 to 15 seconds. This will encourage lymph drainage and collagen production.

To redefine your cheekbones, you will use your index and middle fingers to gently slide your fingers from your chin to your jaw. Continue with this sweeping motion up the cheek toward the cheekbone. On the last stroke up the cheekbone, pause your fingers on your temples for a nice relaxing acupressure point.

Repeat five times.

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout?
