The self-proclaimed gilet advocate got it from his mama.
Men of the world, Frank Ocean wants you to start taking care of your skin, please.
In an interview with American GQ, the artist referenced. among other things, his predisposition to a clean, beautiful face.
When asked was the multi-faceted performer about to drop a skincare line, he responded with candour about his own take on day-to-day skincare.
"Man, listen…some days, like today, I feel very beautiful," he said.
"But some days, like in the winter, when I wear a lot of knit hats, my skin doesn't like that. My mom told me years ago that you gotta get somebody to stitch the silk inside the lining of the cap so it doesn't irritate your skin, 'cause your skin is sensitive. I didn't listen to my mom, but I really do believe in a night cream."
Ocean continued by saying that he believes men are somewhat lacklustre when it comes to skincare.
"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 moisturiser 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, moisturised 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."
During the interview, Ocean also referenced his individual style and his planned outfit for New Years.
"I didn't get the fit that I wanted for my birthday, which consisted of the Balenciaga python-leather pants and a pink skintight tank. I was gonna get the acid green shadow fade, too. Two-tone. Acid green to brunet.
"And the cowboy boots with the chrome heel and toe."
Bold, we'll give him that.
Finally, Ocean mentioned how 2019, for him, is all about self-decoration. The 31-year-old plans to spend this year finally fulfilling his 2018 resolution of carrying on the jewellery he never finished the year before.
And all we'd planned to do was one squat without crying. Figures.
