Kravitz was born in New York City in 1964. Kravitz began playing music when he was still a toddler, banging on kitchen utensils to create sounds that he found appealing.

In the early seventies, Kravitz and his family moved to California, which was where he began performing music professionally. He was influenced by a wide variety of artists, and his own musical style blended elements of hip-hop, rock, reggae, and pop music. 

By the mid-eighties, Kravitz has broken into the music scene, and in 1989, he released his debut album, Let Love Rule. Around the same time, Kravitz began a relationship with Lisa Bonet, a popular actress. Together, the two welcomed a daughter in 1987.

In the early nineties, Kravitz began working with artists like Madonna, furthering his popularity and introducing him as a mainstream artist. Ever since, Kravitz has remained a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. In 2012, he expanded his creative repertoire when he portrayed Cinna in the first two Hunger Games films

Lenny Kravitz is known for his ageless looks

Even at 56 years old, Kravitz looks easily half his age. While some of that could be attributed to his unproblematic lifestyle — Kravitz has remained largely uncontroversial throughout the course of his career, and unlike many other artists, he doesn’t often get embroiled in drama — it is clear that he takes very good care of himself. 

A self-professed hippie at heart, Kravitz has admitted that he lives a “pared-back” lifestyle, eating primarily raw foods and working out on a regular basis. Additionally, Kravitz steers clear of drugs and alcohol and prides himself on keeping his life low-key, avoiding the spotlight wherever possible and focusing on his art.

Although he doesn’t grant many interviews, he did recently open up about his skincare routine, revealing his essentials for healthy skin. 

How does Lenny Kravitz take care of his skin?

In a recent Vanity Fair interview, Kravitz talked about his “simple” skincare routine. “I only use a few things. I wash my face with water, truthfully. When I’m here, I scrub it with the sand from the ocean because it’s very fine and powdery,” the hitmaker revealed.

He also keeps things basic when it comes to his moisturizer regimen. “I use coconut oil on my body, shea butter, cocoa butter, all organic. I use Dr. Bronner’s almond soap. I wash my body with it, I wash my hair with it, and I wash my clothes with it. It’s a really simple island routine, but I carry that wherever I go. And of course, whatever fragrance or oils, but it’s really that simple.”

While a daily wash with ocean sand might be out of reach of most ordinary people, Kravitz’s favorite almond soap can be easily picked up from almost any drugstore for under fifteen dollars.

Clearly, Kravitz has never lost his affinity for the simple things in life, even though he is one of the world’s biggest superstars.
