Dr Deepti Dhillon: Restylane Vital Skinboosters allow your skin to regain lost glow

We are half past January and most of those who had pledged to religiously follow the resolutions all round the year must have either gone back on the vow or must be finding it difficult to stick to them. No matter how many resolutions we make, we end up breaking them over and over again. And, that happens because resolutions restrict us and tell us what not to do. So, if you are also the one who fall in the league of not following the resolutions, and that makes you sad, then don’t lose heart. Take a pledge all over again, this time to switch to a ‘new’ resolution that exudes happiness without any binding. And, opt for a ‘new you’ as your new resolution, says Dr Deepti Dhillon, Cosmetic Dermatologist, Appleskin Clinics, New Delhi.

In a free-wheeling conversation with Jayashankar Menon, the dermatologist speaks about Restylane Vital Skinboosters and gives more information on the overall skin glow that embraces a new look for 2014. Excerpts:

JM: Can you give insight on Restylane Vital Skinboosters?
DD: Yes, allow your skin to regain the lost glow with instant treatments that will surprise you with an overall skin glow and let you embrace a new look for 2014. Take charge of all your skin concerns, even if they are the signs of ageing and look out for some wonderful options. Restylane Vital Skinboosters are among the new age treatments that can let you be the ‘beautiful’ you always are. Restylane Vital Skinboosters are Hyaluronic Acid based fillers that work on a natural principle that hydration is one of the prime requirements of a healthy skin. When injected into the upper layers of the skin, the filler not only takes away the fine lines and wrinkles and make you look plumper and younger, HA being a hydrophilic substance also attracts water and encourages the skin to retain moisture. The glow that comes with it is natural.
JM: What is best about the procedure?
DD: What is best about the procedure is that a session lasts less than 30 minutes but its impact remains for a good six months. Hyaluronic Acid is actually a substance that occurs in the skin naturally. Its function is to provide elasticity and flexibility to the skin by ensuring the moisture and hydration level is good in the lowers layers of the dermis. As we age, the reserves of HA diminish in our skin and so does the skin’s ability to retain moisture. Along with the loss of collagen and elastin, the loss of hyaluronic acid contributes to the appearance of dry and scaly lines on our skin and the skin loses hydration over time.
JM: What Restylane Vital Skinboosters do?
DD: What Restylane Vital Skinboosters do is address this issue in skin. By replenishing the lost reserves of hyaluronic acid, Restylane Vital skinboosters help the skin regain its lost moisture and fill up the fine lines. HA’s water binding feature also gives a deep moisturisation to the skin and a radiant glow. These Skinboosters work on holistic beauty and benefit the skin with deep hydration while they also subtly address specific issues like acne-scarring in some women. The depressions left by acne can be filled by Restylane fillers to give a smoother appearance.
With each session as per the client’s requirements, these Skinboosters deliver deep skin hydration for proven and sustained improvements in overall skin quality. And, there is nothing that would work against your skin-type, if it is tried under expert dermatologist’s supervision and guidance.

She provides some simple steps for getting gorgeous for any occasion in winters.

4. Brush on neutral beige eyeshadow and blend shimmery mocha eyeshadow on top, working it from the lash line to the socket crease. For a more sultry look, blend plum eyeshadow into the hollow of the socket focusing on the outer corners. Using a fine eyeliner brush, apply a thin line of shimmery mocha shadow just under the roots of the lower lashes and blend to touch in the inner corners to open up your eyes.
5. draw along the upper lash line with a black eyeliner pencil and thicken the line gradually from the middle of the eyelid towards the outer corner of the eye, extending it slightly beyond the eye and curving it upwards to create a subtle flick. Draw along the inner rim of the lower lid to elongate the eye. Curl lashes and apply mascara.

Bollywood Beauty and makeup expert Puja Taluja gives tips on engagement makeup

An engagement ceremony is an affair that calls for celebration, coming-together of people and of course pictures that make for lifetime memories for the couple.The blushing bride who is the star of the occasion wishes to look her best on her engagement day. Simple beauty tricks like using a gel foundation as base makeup, muted and lighter tones for a radiant look, a suitable hairdo, choosing the right lip brush or avoiding too many coats of mascara can assure an appearance worthy of many compliments, says Bollywood beauty and makeup expert Puja Taluja. More tips from her:

Image

Get your engagement makeup right by following these rules:

For your face:Do

-Stick to a classic look. Avoid trends, as they will very soon look dated in pictures.

-Use a bronzing powder to warm your skin tone.

-Use a natural bristle brush, lightly apply colour to the areas of the face where the sun would naturally hit: forehead, cheeks and the bridge of the nose. If needed, apply a light dusting on your neck and chest for even all-over colour.

-Give your foundation staying powder by using a gel foundation primer before you apply your makeup. Add a light dusting of loose powder to prevent any unwanted shine.

-Select more golden-toned bases and concealers – these translate better for photography whether on video or in pictures.

-Use more natural, lighter and “cleaner” colours. These flattering shades will not look washed out and the contrast will not be too great with your dress. Your natural radiance should be on display, not bright colour. These more muted tones work best, not only for you, but for the engagement party as well.

For your eyes:

Do

-Use a brow powder or gel in a colour one shade deeper than your natural hair colour to keep your brows looking their best. If your brows are scant, lightly fill them in with a brow pencil in a light neutral shade and then, using a brow powder and brush, go over this shape using a stippling technique to create a natural effect.

Image

-Use neutrals to contour and highlight your eyes. For eyeliners, stick to the classics: black, navy or brown.

-Get lush lashes by first using an eyelash curler and then applying two coats of lengthening mascara. Waterproof is always a good choice; it’s longer lasting and won’t run even if you shed a few tears of joy.

For your lips and cheeks:

Do

-Become a blushing bride by choosing a warm flattering cheek colour in a pinky peach or rose. When applying the colour, focus the blush on the apples of the cheek and blend the excess back and up toward the hairline. For oily skin, a powder blush is the perfect choice, but if your skin tends to be a bit dry, try a cream blush to achieve a dewy natural glow.

-Create a pretty pout by first applying your lip colour using a lip brush, then using a lip pencil in a complementary colour. Be sure to follow the natural line of your lips. Not only is it easier to define your lips after your lip colour is already applied, it also creates a softer, more natural look.

Image

-Choose a lip colour in a warm, fairly bright shade. Roses, pinks and reds look great in photos.

-Apply lip-liner evenly all over the lips, under the lipstick to make it last longer. When lipstick fades, it will fade evenly without leaving the outer lip liner only.
