R&B singer Frank Ocean, left, wants to know the secrets to Pharrell Williams’ daily skincare regimen. In a rare interview with GQ magazine, the 31-year-old New Orleans native said he asked the "Happy" producer to share "more keys" to the secret of his youthful skin.
Pharrell (pictured) has long been admired for his flawless skin which makes him look much younger than his stated age of 45.
Pharrell previously said his youthful appearance is the result of good exfoliation and drinking plenty of water.
"I exfoliate like a madman," Pharrell told dazeddigital.com in 2017. "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," he added. "There's a lot of dead skin. (I exfoliate) all the time. Like a narcissistic madman."
But Frank is convinced there's more to Pharrell's skincare routine than just scrubbing off dead skin cells, and he wants the super producer to let him in on the beauty secret.
"It's been all these years, and Pharrell still hasn't given us the keys yet," Frank tells GQ. "He just says 'exfoliate,' but it's not just 'exfoliate': We need more keys."
Frank (pictured) revealed his own multi-step facial routine to help him maintain his boyish image and "beautiful" skin around-the-clock.
"I feel like men just go to sleep," he explains. "They may wash their face or they don't even bother - they go to sleep with the day face on. You really need to do a gentle wash and put a night moisturizer on."
"I really do believe in night cream," Frank says. "I need (it) because when I wake up I feel very beautiful, moisturized, and ready to have people making eye contact with me, ready to look above my eyebrow, below the eyebrow. That's the life hack right there.
The singer, who came out of the closet in 2012, advises men to use a retinol-rich cream to fight wrinkles and give their skin a healthy glow. But it should only be applied at night - right before bed.
"You can't have the retinol in your creams in the day because it makes you more sun-sensitive, so you wanna throw that on at night," he said.
