How Do You Make Your Face Thinner?

To make the face thinner, do facial exercises, limit your salt and sugar intake, and drink water. Use beauty tricks, such as long earrings and strategic makeup application, to make the face appear thinner.

  1. Exercise the cheeks

    Place three fingers on your cheekbone on either side of your face. Press up gently, and open your mouth wide. Close your mouth. Using your fingertips, press down. Smile and release. Repeat 10 times.

  2. Do lip exercises

    Place an index finger at each corner of the mouth. Pull the corners down while smiling. This works the lip muscles. Release the smile. Cover your top lip with your bottom lip, and smile. Release. Repeat both exercises 10 times.

  3. Work the chin

    Sit with your back straight against the chair back. Tilt your head back with your chin lifted. Extend the jaw, and extend the lower lip over the top lip. Relax the jaw. Repeat 10 times.

  4. Limit salt and sugar in your diet

    Water retention shows in the face. Limit your intake of salt and sugar to avoid retaining water.

  5. Drink adequate water

    Water flushes the system and also prevents the retention of liquid in your face. Drink a minimum of 64 ounces of water daily.

  6. Make the face look thinner

    Try fashion tips that make the face look thinner. Wear long earrings to draw the eye down. Select a hairstyle with a high crown. Try contouring the face with makeup. Use a powder one shade darker than your natural skin tone on the sides of the nose, the jawbone and at the temple.
