Getting rid of stubborn baby fat from the face can be quite a challenge but did you know that certain facial exercises can help you lose fat from the face and a leaner look? Yes, there are about 57 facial muscles and therefore just like other body parts, even the face can be exercised to make it appear toned and slimmer. 

So, to get that chiseled and lean look on your face, try these simple facial exercises to get rid of chubby cheeks or that double chin that has been bothering you:

1. Puff your cheeks

This exercise increases the blood circulation in your face muscles, especially around your cheeks. Improved blood circulation strengthens upper cheek muscles and improves facial appearance.
