Freshen up with DJ Fresh

Freshen up with DJ FreshWith more than 20 years experience in radio, we chat to the man with the contagious laugh, one who sure knows how to rock the decks, can’t live without Apple products, and loves smelling good – the one and only, DJ Fresh!

‘My skincare routine tends to vary. It’s between soap, the green sunlight bar (which I know is not good for my skin), Neutrogena or the good ol’ Johnson and Johnson’s,’ Fresh says.

We all know DJ Fresh for his baldhead, amongst other things. But did you know he visits his barber once a week. ‘I have been bald for about eighteen years now, I grew an afro about eight years ago, but it is too much work.’

And what’s in his gym bag, well, it’s his guess too… ‘I don’t have a gym bag, I leave the house with a towel and water bottle, and I’ll shower when I get home. I have an issue with public showering.’

Nothing beats smelling fresh, and that’s exactly one of the grooming tips he’ll pass onto his kids. ‘Under-arm stuff and taking pride in how you smell, it’s the first sign that you haven’t when you walk into a room.’

He doesn’t shave, simply because he can’t grow a beard but he’s definitely a fragrance fundi. ‘I wear a different fragrance everyday. I’m an old school scent kind of guy. It’s between Herrera for Men, Davidoff and Eternity.’

DJ Fresh believes that being healthy lies in what you eat and how many calories you consume. ‘You are what you eat, and I’m still working on that!’
