Dr Harper’s Favorite Food & Drink for Beautiful Skin

My favorite food to consume for beautiful skin is fish because it provides a variety of amino acids which are critical building blocks for healthy collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are what keep your skin smooth and wrinkle free! Omega-3’s help to keep your skin hydrated and glowing. The colder the water the fish comes from, the higher the omega-3 content. Alaskan Salmon is an excellent choice for Omega-3’s and an incredible source of amino acids.

A favorite drink of mine is green tea because not only does it contain water, the most important fluid for hydrating the skin, it is also packed full of beneficial compounds for the skin like polyphenols and antioxidants. Antioxidants provide the skin with photo protection which protects the skin against aging and skin cancer. Antioxidants also help to fight free radicals and reduce inflammation.
