And his own diet is super clean. When we asked to peek inside the dermatologist’s fridge last year, we noticed his affinity for watercress. (It was enough to turf Times Square).
So we shouldn’t have been surprised when the uber-alkaline green reappeared here in his favorite green juice, which you can make in a juicer or blender. “Watercress is a detoxer that’s great for skin issues, like eczema and acne,” he says.
And antioxidant cinnamon in his juice recipe lowers blood sugar, which “helps prevent diabetes, the accumulation of body fat, and even wrinkles.”
One request from the good doctor: Try to choose organic produce. “The little bit more that it might cost is well worth avoiding toxic pesticides,” he says. —Melisse Gelula
