Pharrell Williams revealed the secret to his unchanging complexion is a cheap cleanser.

The music star revealed his skincare routine during an interview with New York radio station HOT 97.

The 40-year-old uses Cetaphil’s gentle cleanser every day and believes the product has helped him keep his good looks intact.

The legendary singer also shared the beauty advice he learned from supermodel Naomi Campbell, that he still follows to this day.

"[My secret is] Washing my face, paying attention to it. I mean little small stuff. Naomi Campbell taught me a couple of tricks back in the day,” Pharrell told The Angie Martinez Show. “Washing my face with cold water to keep pores closed, little small stuff. You just gotta wash your face. I use Cetaphil.”

Pharrell admitted he may have inherited his complexion from his parents. The star says his mother and father both possess remarkably youthful appearance too.

"Nah I'm not Benjamin Button people say my parents look pretty young too, and I can comfortably say that about them too," Pharrell continued.

"Listen guys you've just got to wash your face. Once a day. I don't use creams or toners!"

For his interview on the show Pharrell wore a black and white checked top and a camouflage baseball cap. The American hip-hop star has launched a successful clothes label off the back of his own individual street style, and was quick to stand up for his choice of garments to the show host.

"It's Hermes [not a blanket]," he laughed. "I didn't want you to think I was a hobo. This blanket cost 60,000 dollars!"
