Lots of girls moan about the chubby state of their face and brush it off as having “having bad genes”, but that’s not the always the case. A big face can be the result of many factors, such as the amount of sodium in your diet, excess fluid retention and inactive lymphatic glands. This is why going on a diet isn’t enough to achieve those killer cheekbones you’ve always wanted.

So what’s the true secret to saying goodbye to a bloated face? One answer is to drain the lymph nodes around your face to get rid of the excess water retention, leading to a smaller face.

Massage is necessary to help flush out the excess fluid retention in your face (or anywhere else on your body) and so we’ve compiled four awesome facial massage videos that will teach you how to achieve a perfect, V-shape face. Other than making your face smaller, the benefits of facial massage include tightening loose skin, toning facial muscles and brightening of the complexion. Pretty cool, huh? Give it a try, there’s nothing to lose.

A small disclaimer: These exercises won’t completely transform the bone structure of your face, but it will return your face to the way it should naturally be, minus the excess fluid. Just remember to practise them regularly!
