Reduce overall body fat

You cannot just rely on exercising alone to get a slimmer face, your diet will have a lot to do with it as well. How to reduce face fat with your diet? One of the first things you need to consider is the number of calories you consume. If you reduce the number of calories you consume, the body will begin to burn the extra fat you have stored.
