Start College With A Shining Glow


   Modern day dermal fillers like Restylane Vital provide instant glow and are long-lasting

New Delhi, July, 2014: July, it is that time of the year when students are dying to start college. Twelfth pass-outs couldn’t stop shopping — buying clothes, funky bags, purses, gadgets which they can flaunt on the first day of their college. Everybody knows ‘first impression is the last impression’ and students do not want to leave anything to chance.

Looking their best during the starting few days college to garner maximum eyeballs is students’ first priority. But it is not just the gadgets or the purse or the branded clothes that make them look good. A good, shining skin compliments every other thing. No matter how expensive clothes you wear, if the skin is dull, the whole look gets spoiled. The students know fact very well.

And so be it girls or boys, students of both genders are spending good amount of time to improve their skin tone, making it look bright and vibrant. They can be seen making multiple visits to parlours and buying a variety of creams and masks, for the sake of glowing skin. How much that glow important is evident from the same.

But no matter what you have been doing to get the ‘ultimate glow’ on your face, the exhaustion of board exams’ preparation is still visible on your face, making it look dull and lifeless. The rigor of studies that made you fetch good marks in your board exams is apparent on your face and you are not able to get rid of it. You have tried all the alternatives, experimented with all the home remedies, but the shine has been ditching you.

“If you are encountering the same situation, then relax! To get a glowing face, you only need to visit your dermatologist and go for a session of Retylane Vital. The dermal filler will get you your desired glow in no time. Many students have been coming to me for the session,” said Dr Deepali Bhardwaj, Dermatologist, Dr. Deepali’s Skin Clinic, Delhi.

The modern day dermal filler — Restylane Vital — does the wonder in just some minutes and in a very simple way. What more! This is not an effect that would last a few days. The glow and softness that come with the hydrophilic hyaluronic acid (that promotes water retention and absorption) stays for up to a year. So you would not need to worry about visiting the parlour again and again and spare that time in making new friends or having fun.

When injected into the upper layers of the skin, Restylane Vital deeply hydrates and nourishes it. Hyaluronic acid gel is implanted into the outer layers of the skin using microinjections and it works naturally to hydrate the skin from within, making the skin glow.

“The procedure helps the skin to look more radiant. With the help of dermal fillers, you can even highlight your facial features, augmenting your lips to even cheeks,” says Dr Sachin Dhawan, Dermatologist, Skinsmile Clinic, Gurgaon.

So when on the first day of college your seniors ask the secret behind your shiny and glowy look, share with them the million-dollar answer. You will definitely end up ruling their hearts.

With Usha Uthup sending the crowd into a tizzy with her own personal dedication to edge the warriors on; one would have expected them to have had a less nervy start.

With the Warriors and the Bulls both starting their campaign with empty raids, Bengaluru did emerge as the stronger team at the start of the first half scoring 4 LONA points at the end of Two and Six minutes. Bengal Warrior’s South Korean Jang Kun Lee emerged as the star player for Kolkata being the sole defender remaining twice during the first half, protecting the Warriors territory gallantly and being their strongest raider, tied at two points with his teammate Nitin Madane at the end of the first twenty minutes. For the Bengaluru Bulls, Ajay Thakur emerged as their most successful raider at the end of first-half with 6 Raid Points, followed by Rajesh Mandal at 4 Raid Points. The first half ended with the Bengaluru Bulls in a twelve-point lead against the Bengal Warriors, with scores at 13-25.

The Bengaluru Bulls maintained their 12-point lead through the second half, scoring another 2 LONA points at the end of 34 minutes dampening Kolkata’s homecoming who were unable to score any LONA points through the game.  With Bengaluru, increasing their lead to a 16-point difference, the fans started stepping away from their seats and the Bengaluru Bulls ended their only match in Kolkata on a high with scores at the end of the games poised at 30-46.

 In a clash of Titans, Bull’s Ajay Thakur and Paltan’s Wazir Singh end as top raiders

Mumbai, 27th July 2014: It was the game made for the raiders, with two of the Star Sports Pro Kabaddi Star raiders, Bengaluru Bulls’s Ajay Thakur taking on Puneri Paltan’s Wazir Singh. While the Bulls charged in with the confidence of a win from opening night, the Paltans, came in strong with the hope of fresh legs carrying them on. The crowd however, had no preferences, with NSCI packed to their brims, the noise level at the stadium made it apparent the game would be the ultimate winner, whoever took home the prize tonight. Winning the toss and choosing to raid from the right, the teams kept the scores level predominantly through the first half, with captain and star raider of the Paltans, Wazir Singh coming in at the 11 minute to gain a massive 5 points – the most for the night. However, the Bulls did not back down reacting by sending in their star raider, Ajay Thakur, who stepped in to bring the Bulls to a significant 6 point lead and earn them their first of two LONA points for the night. However, scores at the end of first-half were proof of the teams being an equal match, reading 23-21 to the Paltans with both teams scoring 2 LONA points each.

 Both teams entered their second half, with the same confidence and energy that was prevalent through the first 20 minutes and translated it to their game, keeping the match close and providing the entertainment Bombay was hoping for. The Bengaluru Captain’s aggression however earned him the only Green Card for the night, penalized for a violation of rules.

At the end of 29 minutes, it was synchronicity, with scores tied at 29 a piece, but the Paltans stepped up their game to earn their first of two ‘all-out’ points at the end of 32 minutes. While the game continued head to head, Bengaluru Bulls emerged as victors with a miniscule 3 point lead, with Ajay Thakur emerging as anticipated top raider with 15 raids only equaled by feared opponent Wazir Singh.

Mumbai 26th July 2014: The excitement was came thick and fast, with the second game- a momentous clash between the South and the North. Dabang Delhi lead by the fearless Jasmer Singh faced off against the might of the Bengaluru Bulls captained by the indomitable Manjit Chillar. Kashiling Adake gave Delhi a wonderful start displaying incredible agility in each of his initials raids, but the Bengaluru Bulls charged back to level the score at 5, on the stroke of the 6 minute mark. What initially seemed a tightly contested affair soon changed into a very one sided affair. After over turning the deficit, Bengaluru looked a truly domineering unit. 

By the eighth minute they had knocked out the entire Delhi team, scoring their first LONA point and moving clearly into the distance. The first half witnessed an incredible display of strength from Dharmaraj Cherlathan of Bengaluru who lifted a rapidly escaping Amit Singh up off of his feet and changed his course of direction entirely, thus allowing the Bengalurean anti to seize the opportunity and tackle him. However the highlight of the first-half was Ajay Thakur of the Bulls, who tagged out 3 members of the opposition to reduce Delhi to a single player, earning him the Best Raider title for the second match.

The Bulls capitalised on what looked like a lapse in concentration from the Delhi team, and went on to punish them by knocking out their entire team and giving the Bulls their second set of LONA points on the night.

At  half time, the Bulls were leading Dabang Delhi 27-13. Owing to the mountain they were set to climb if they were to come back, Delhi sent in their best raider, Kashiling Adake into Bengaluru’s territory hoping his guile and agility could give Delhi the boost they so desperately needed, but the Bengaluru Bulls were proved to be very stubborn, denying Delhi any chance of recovery. The game’s most destructive force was none other than the Bengaluru Bulls captain Manjit Chillar, who not only helped thwarting the threat presented by Delhi’s attack, but more importantly was fearsome every time he raided into the opposition’s half, often taking as many as 3 members of the anti out with him – winning the well deserved title of Best Player for the second match of the night. 

The might and organisational excellence of the Bulls earned them their 3rd set of LONA points on the night. Bengaluru were sharp on the attack and merciless in defence, by the 31st minute they were a firm 22 points in the lead. It was evident by the body language of the Delhi team hands resting over hips in a declared that it was over. Even the experienced Ehsan Zamani was making mistakes now, exceeding his ‘cant’ for the second time on the night. It was all over minutes later, with Bengaluru wining comfortably 47- 28 over Dabang Delhi.
