In today’s world, our appearance is vital to the quality of our life. You may think that you shouldn’t judge the book by its covers, and you’re absolutely right. However, that is not what actually happens. If a person is dressed sloppily, you’re going to assume that they’re sloppy by nature. If a man is dressed in a fancy suit, you’ll think that he has a good job. If you are interviewing a person for a job, and their hair is greasy and messy, or their clothes are stained, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll want them to work for you. That is simply the way of the world, and there is very little we can do about it.
So, the one thing we can actually do is make sure that we look our best. If you look like you’ve dressed with care, if your hair is shiny and your skin flawless, people will naturally assume the best of you. Of course, the first thing everyone notices about you is your face, which makes your face your most valuable asset. It can help you make an impression, so here are some tips to help you have a model like face.
1. Model like face: drink more water
A puffy-looking face is sometimes caused by bloating, which happens when our body retains water. This only happens if our body lacks the water it needs, so the intake of water is one of the first things to fix if you feel bloated. Usually, you’ll hear that eight big glasses of water will do the trick, but it’s not that simple. Even though it’s an okay rule in general, there are many factors to be taken into account when it comes to the recommended water intake, your weight and lifestyle being the most important ones. If you do exercise regularly (which you should), you need to drink more. If your lifestyle is mostly sedentary, you’ll need less water. Whatever the case is, not let yourself be thirsty for a long time, and you should be fine.
2. Lose weight
Easier said than done, right? However, if you’re chubby, your face will look chubby too. Therefore, for a slim and model like face, you absolutely need to lose weight. By no means does it follow that you should strive to be skin-and-bone thin, but a couple of pounds should help your face look slimmer.
3. Model like face: do facial exercises
A good way to make your face more firm is to do facial exercise. Even though they are not the kind of exercise that we’re used to doing and they can make us feel silly, they can help us look younger and they can actually help tone our face. This way, your skin won’t sag as a consequence of weight loss, so you’ll have all the benefits of being slim without the downsides! If you try it out and do them consistently, you’ll see that they’re worth the effort.
4. Model like face: contour away
If you need more instant results, you can use makeup to create the illusion of a slimmer face. Contouring may sound difficult, but it is actually quite easy. The rule you should stick with is that you put bronzer where shadows would be if you had accentuated cheekbones, and you put highlighter on the areas you want to make more pronounced. There are many tutorials and video tutorials on the internet, so if you need quick results, you should try it out. However, if you are worried about the aging effect everyday heavy makeup might have on your face, you may want to consider a small cosmetic intervention such as cheek augmentation.
5. Let the time deal with it
If you’re under forty, chances are that your baby fat still hasn’t melted away. The fat in our cheeks disappears over time, so with age, our faces get slimmer and slimmer. Now, this, unfortunately, means that when the amount of fat is reduced, the face sometimes looks gaunt and hollow because of the lack of shape and extra skin can ruin the overall appearance of it. To counter this, most people opt for minor interventions like blepharoplasty that can fix the problem with the surplus skin. That way, you get the definition you want and the youthful appearance we all desire.
6. Avoid foods that cause bloating
All fast food causes bloating because it’s mostly fried and greasy. Carbonated drinks and too salty foods are also a bad choice if you have problems with swelling and bloating, so you should cut down on them as well. There are many types of food that can cause such issues, and depending on your organism, some will cause bigger and some smaller problems. Be careful what you eat, and it will spare you more than a simple bloating because most of the bloating-inducing foods cause digestive problems as well.
Looking like a model is not an easy task, but with determination and persistence, it doesn’t have to be terribly difficult either. Put some effort into your appearance, and it’ll pay off in the long run.
