No, he's not a vampire.

Vampire-like youthfulness…

Pharrell Williams has been in the public eye for a long time. He’s produced films, won Grammys and he’s an icon in the fashion world.

But one thing that will strike you, is how damn young Pharrell Williams still looks at the tender age of 44.

Some have even speculated with conspiracies that he may be a vampire…

But we don’t believe in all that, and rightly so, because it seems like Pharrell puts a lot of effort into keeping his skin young, if a recent interview with Dazed is anything to go by.

“I exfoliate like a madman,” he explained. “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,” Williams said. “There’s a lot of dead skin. All the time. Like a narcissistic madman.”

In an interview from 2013 with Into the Gloss, he also discussed his skin regiments, and it seems to back up his claims about exfoliation.

“You have to clean your face,” Williams said. “You can’t sit around and assume it’s going to be OK. I wash my face every day—don’t be afraid to wash yours before you go to bed!

“My dermatologist, Dr. Elena Jones, gave me the Glytone Self-Foaming Cleanser, which I wash off with cold water to close my pores. I follow that with a Clearing Toner and Moisturizer, also from my dermatologist. You have to take care of your skin.

“Years and years and years ago, Naomi Campbell pulled me aside and said, ‘Listen, this is what you have to do—you have to go to a dermatologist; you can’t keep using drugstore products.’ Well, you can, but with the store products you have to be really diligent,” Williams said.

We mentioned earlier that people were murmuring about Pharrell being a vampire, and he even addressed the rumours back in 2014 with speaking to TimeOut.

“No I am not,” he said. “I’m willing to go on record as saying that I don’t drink people’s blood. How do I stay so young-looking for a 40-year-old? I wash my face.”

He just looks after himself really well. You should too.
