Why Hyaluronic acid is your dry skin savior

Why Hyaluronic acid is your dry skin savior

We've known for years that keeping skin hydrated, particularly in dry climates, keeps it more radiant and all-around healthier, since it's less likely to break, crack, or become inflamed. One super skin hydrating ingredient, in particular, stands out--Hyaluronic Acid, your dry skin savior. Why?

Hyaluronic acid attracts and retains moisture in your skin --it can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water! It's the same ingredient used in injectable fillers. 

According to Jessica Weiser, a board-certified dermatologist at New York Dermatology Group, "When applied topically to the skin, hyaluronic acid holds water to the skin surface to increase hydration of the cells and surface, without occlusion (blockage). This moistens the skin surface to alleviate dryness, facilitate healing and create a protective barrier.”

Topical treatments with hyaluronic acid helps to maintain a youthful-looking appearance by replenishing the hyaluronic acid content in our skin that diminishes as we grow older, which contributes to significant dryness, sagging and wrinkling."

More tips for hydrating Winter skin-

  • Use an exfoliating polish  2 times/week.  Regular exfoliation is especially important for dry skin—patches of dead, flaky cells not only look less-than-pretty, they also prevent moisturizers and serums from penetrating into and hydrating skin.
  • Use your moisturizer while your skin is still damp, after cleansing or showering.
  • Antioxidant-rich moisturizers are your friend!  Look for Vitamins C, E, and Vitamin B.  A serum that includes both antioxidants and hyaluronic acid is best!

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
