Yesterday, one of the music industry's most mysterious men revealed one of his deepest secrets, answering the question on everyone's dry, cat's asshole lips: How does Frank Ocean keep that skin so soft? Ocean, basically a Lush employee for genderqueer millennials, covered GQ and revealed, in rather uncertain terms, how he cares for his skin. This is how he described his routine:
“I really do believe in a night cream. I feel like men just go to sleep. 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. 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. I need the night cream 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. [laughs] That's the life hack right there. It's been all these years, and Pharrell still hasn't given us the keys yet. He just says 'exfoliate,' but it's not just 'exfoliate': We need more keys.”
In the grooming sphere, Ocean's admission was revelatory. Believe it or not, there are still men who don't even wash their damn face (!). His interview became a thread on Reddit's /r/skincareaddition (which is worth perusing if you have no idea where to start with your own skincare), and was dissected all over Twitter.
