27M here, 5’10 160lbs. I’ve gotten into the best shape of my life over last year (nothing amazing but 5 min treadmill mile and more weights lately). I feel really good about it overall but I’ve noticed my face actually looking slightly chubbier. Mainly around puffy cheeks when I look at pics compared to college.

Any recs on how to improve that? My diet isn’t very good so I suspect that’s it but what’s most important to cut out? Thanks!

I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I’ll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturiser, then an anti-ageing eye balm followed by a final moisturising protective lotion.

Drink plenty of water

Drink more water and cut back on alcohol. I noticed alcohol can make a huge difference in my face compared to anywhere else on my body

Darn, was hoping it wasn’t this haha. I barely drink on weekdays but drink pretty excessively on fri/sat. Time to cut back I suppose...

Pretty highly rated consistently and up for director this year. For years been thinking of starting a business (franchise). Pandemic has put a dent in that but still viable option. Gross profit is 350k (median) and a line of business I’d be very interested in. Clearly this is less pay than new parter (but could open more than one eventually) and risk may be higher for failure. What other factors should I consider when evaluating staying to partner or trying my hand as an entrepreneur?
