I Have Proof Daddy Yankee Has the Best Skin — Plus His Inexpensive Trick to Achieve It
As I continue my deep dive into celebrity Instagrams during these times of social distancing, I found myself staring at Daddy Yankee's profile and going through his photos and videos. While he posts a lot of promotion for his music, he also posts a healthy amount of candid cellphone shots and videos that mostly seem unfiltered. The deeper I got, the more I kept staring at his skin. It's flawless.
It dawned on me. Daddy Yankee might have the best skin out there. It looks smooth and healthy, with not a wrinkle in sight. Of course, I was curious. Could it be that he's not at that age yet? But then I remembered, he's been in the business since the '90s, so unless he started the minute he came out of the womb, something didn't add up.
How is Daddy Yankee's skin so perfect? Not a single spot or blemish. "The only thing I use is organic extra-virgin olive oil," he said in an interview a few years ago. "I've had problems with dry skin. This is the only thing that has worked for me."
Turns out, olive oil is full of antioxidants like vitamin E, phytosterols, and polyphenols. When applied externally, it prevents wrinkles and softens fine lines, protects against UV rays, and provides a long-lasting shield of moisture to keep the skin smooth.
It's important to know that if you have acne-prone skin, this alternative might not be the best for you, as olive oil can still clog pores. However, for Daddy Yankee, it's proven to be the secret to eternal youth, and if you keep scrolling, you'll totally see my point.
