Face Volume Loss: How to Deal with It
The face is the most important feature of a human being. It’s what makes us unique and recognizable among other people, but many times we are unaware of the fact that our faces can change over time due to aging or other factors like weight loss or gain. One common cause for facial volume loss is age-related changes in the bone structure. This causes sagging skin on the lower part of the face. This phenomenon is called “jowling.”
In this blog post, you’ll learn how to deal with and prevent jowling by using a few simple tricks.
Drink Plenty of Water
Water is one of the most important elements for your body. It can help you lose weight and keep a healthy skin tone, but it also has other benefits, such as reducing wrinkles and preventing jowling by keeping bones hydrated.
If you drink enough water (around eight glasses per day) every morning before breakfast, then you might notice that when looking in the mirror, there is less volume loss happening on certain areas of your face. This applies to all parts of the face: mouth area, cheekbones, etc. So this trick will work no matter what type or severity of facial volumizing issues are present.
And if you’re not used to drinking lots of water at once in the mornings because it’s too much hassle. Remember that coffee and tea are also great sources of water, so if you add a glass or two of either to your daily routine, the benefits will be doubled.
Get Enough Sleep
Sleep will always trump everything else when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
If you’re tired during the day and sleep-deprived, your body will not be able to function properly because of a lack of energy. And if you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep at night, then this is another issue that can lead to facial volume loss over time as well as a host of other damaging effects on your health such as heart issues, chronic pain in joints, etc.
So get enough sleep every single evening by turning off all lights an hour before bedtime. Drinking some herbal tea with honey 30 minutes beforehand, and setting up a routine for yourself like reading something inspirational. These are just a few examples. But the most important thing is for you to be in bed by the time your body tells you that it’s ready for sleep.
Eat Healthy Foods
Healthy foods are always good for you, so it’s important not to neglect them when planning your diet.
Every meal should have a balance of proteins (meats and eggs), vegetables (yes – including salads!), fruits, healthy fats like avocado or olive oil, nuts and seeds, whole grains such as oats, pasta, or rice that provide more complex carbs with a low glycemic index. And if time is an issue, then just try preparing food in advance by chopping veggies the night before or making enough salad for one day and storing it in the fridge. This way, all you’ll need to do on any given morning is put together what you want from this pre-made ingredients list: chopped veggies + either beans/lentils/tofu/tempeh + avocado, olive oil or a tomato/olive salad + some whole grain (or pasta) and you’ll have all the vitamins and minerals that your body needs for the day.
Eat Enough Calories
Just like with water intake – food is essential to energy levels as well.
It’s important not to skip meals because this can lead to malnutrition which in turn means less of an ability for our bodies to preserve muscle mass on certain parts of the face, namely jowls, lower cheekbones, etc., which are also prone to volume loss. So make sure you eat every three hours if possible: breakfast, lunch, snack before dinner time, and then one final meal at night, even if it’s just fruit or something small.
