Music producer Pharrell Williams says he maintains his youthful looks by exfoliating “like a narcissistic madman” everyday. The 44-year-old hit maker shared his daily skincare regimen with dazeddigital.com.
He explained that he removes the dead skin from his face with exfoliating scrub and he drinks at least 8 glasses of water daily.
“When you exfoliate and you drink a lot of water, that does good for you. To me, the key is just exfoliating, like a monster. There’s a lot of dead skin. All the time. Like a narcissistic madman.”
Men naturally exfoliate by shaving their faces daily. The razor scrapes off the dead skin that accumulates daily, allowing new skin cells to proliferate. As a result, middle aged men tend to look younger than their wives of the same age.
Over the weekend, Williams launched his newest tennis collection, a collaboration with Adidas Originals for AW17. He recently released a sneaker collaboration with Adidas that sold well.
When asked who he looks to for fashion inspiration, the father-of-4 said:
“Everyday people. They have the best style, because it’s real. It’s like, the maintenance man, he does maintenance, and so his clothes have a utility function. He’s going to wear it with that kind of swagger, so he shows you how to wear it. When I started wearing trucker hats, maybe 20 years ago, that was because I was seeing truckers wearing them and was like, that’s kind of cool.”
