But where does the skincare savant get his advice for a smooth complexion? From the power duo of Naomi Campbell and her own dermatologist, Elena Jones, MD.

In the latest episode of Grooming Gods, Pharrell (who recently created a Wes Anderson-style hotel), who is famous for aging backwards, confessed that he didn't take much care of his skin before he met Dr. Elena: "She made me start to think about things in a different way," she recalls, "and that's when I understood that skin care is a necessity. Your face is the expression of your personality: you have to take care of it."

And while Naomi is clearly responsible for the wonder that is Pharrell's face (who recently opened up about his new sneakers, his take on luxury, and his confidence in the universe), the mogul himself has picked up some good habits of his own on down the road, long enough to launch her own skincare line, Humanrace.
