DJ Khaled doesn’t wear cologne.

The 41-year-old record producer – who is the brand ambassador for Palmers’ cocoa butter and has launched a three-part collection with the skincare company – has revealed he relies on the chocolate-scented cream as his signature fragrance instead of spraying aftershave.

Speaking to about his beauty hacks, the ‘For Free’ rapper said: “I don’t use no cologne, none of that. I just use cocoa butter and that’s it.”

And the musician has revealed all of the beauty and skincare products he uses are “natural”.

He continued: “Everything I need is natural besides going to the shower and taking soap and shampoo and conditioner. Then I come out with the lotion and it’s that cocoa butter.”

The star has hinted he is quite high maintenance as he gets his hair cut a minimum of “three times a week”, although he will visit the barbers more if he has public appearances coming up.

He explained: “I cut my hair like three times a week.

“Sometimes more if I’m working, and I know I got to be in front of people with interviews or TV or video. I’ve been blessed to be so busy.”

And DJ Khaled – whose real name is Khaled Mohamed Khaled – even treats himself to a weekly manicure and pedicure.

He continued: “Manicure/pedicure once a week. When I’m on the road, I use the hotel or whoever I call. But in Miami I have my own person.”

DJ Khaled – who has seven-week old son Asahd with his fiancé Nicole Tuck – has revealed he has piled on the pounds since his partner gave birth, but is planning to shed 20lbs in weight imminently.

He said: “I gained twenty pounds.

“I’m officially going back to eating clean and my daily work out. Like officially.

“It’s not even about how much I lose and how fast, it’s so much about being healthy. Feeling good, the workout, building your muscles, let your blood flow right and eating the right type of food. That’s what I care about. But I will lose twenty pounds like … I can lose ten … I have. I can lose ten in a week and a few days.”
