Perpetual young man Pharrell Williams recently revealed how he has managed to maintain his age defying-looks in an interview with Dazed.
Pharrell, whose photos makes the rounds on social media every award season, people commenting on how young he looks despite his age (44), has said he drinks a lot of water and exfoliates “like a narcissistic madman.” He said:

Well, you can, but with the store products you have to be really diligent. At the end of the day, you just have to take care of your face. I’m being honest with you. And, no, I don’t wear fragrance
