The A, B, C and K's of beautiful skin

by Kelli P April 25, 2016

Do you look in the mirror and see dark circles under your eyes? If so, try increasing the vitamin K in your diet--with Kale! 1 cup of Kale packs 684% of the RDA of Vitamin K. 

If you like a morning smoothie for breakfast, like I do, add a handful of spinach or kale and power up the skin saving nutrients!

Today, I boosted my morning smoothie with handful of spinach to the 1/2 banana, 4 large strawberries, 1 tsp. Coconut Oil, and protein powder.  Why? Spinach is a good source of vitamins B, C, and E, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Here are a few items I'm going to pick up at the grocery store today that are also known to help keep our skin healthy and glowing!

Kale -  a rich source of vitamin K. It also has anti-inflammatory benefits that helps you stay less bloated, which can prevent puffiness on the face. The sulfur content in kale aids in reducing redness and flakiness, and vitamin K helps ward off cancer, while keeping circulation healthy.

The antioxidants and phytochemicals found in blueberries help to neutralize free radicals, which might otherwise damage skin cells, leaving your skin with a younger and softer look and feel.

Sweet PotatoesThe vitamin A per serving of sweet potatoes even rivals that of green leafy vegetables, providing 769% of the daily value per serving.  Vitamin A thickens and stimulates the dermis – where your collagen, elastin and blood vessels are, so it reduces wrinkles and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin. Vitamin A actually slows the normal aging breakdown of your collagen and elastin.

Red PeppersA cup of chopped red bell pepper contains nearly three times more vitamin C than an orange—190 mg.  Vitamin C provides potent antioxidant protection, shielding skin from damaging free radicals—those pesky rogue molecules that promote premature aging. The most abundant forms of free-radical damage are environmental factors we can’t escape—think sun damage, pollution and oxygen—that assault skin on a daily basis, but that’s where topical vitamin C can help.

We all know our skin ages, sometimes faster than we would like. There are two main reasons our skin ages known as Intrinsic and Extrinsic aging. 

Intrinsic or Genetics - contribute to how fast we age. Most of us show signs of aging in our late 40's to early 50's. 

Extrinsic or External Factors - These include environmental, free radical sun damage, and stress.

Free radical and sun damage accounts for 90% of early signs of aging. Seriously, it's that high!

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
