While Shelton won the title of “Sexiest Man Alive,” his style in the early 2000s was undoubtedly questionable. At the time, Shelton also used a very unique skincare routine. Read on to learn more about Shelton’s old skincare routine and how Gwen Stefani helped him clean up his act.

If you’re looking to embrace a new skincare routine, don’t look for advice from Shelton. After being named “the sexiest man in country music” in 2008, comedian Jeff Foxworthy asked Shelton what his secrets were for being so sexy. Shelton let Foxworthy be part of his skin care routine to keep him young and beautiful.
In the interview, Shelton joked, “I like to use saline when I put my contacts on, it tends to run down my face when I put them on. [That’s what gives me that glow], and people don’t realize what it does.
While this may have been Shelton’s skin care routine in the early 2000s, you can look for skin care tips elsewhere if you want real results.

However, Shelton’s style has certainly changed over the years and especially for the better. Luckily for Shelton, he has met women throughout his life who have helped him achieve sleeker looks, more appealing hairstyles, and better skin care routines. One of those amazing women is Shelton’s future wife, Gwen Stefani.

Although their styles of music are very different, the paths of the two stars finally crossed in 2015. Stefani and Shelton first met in the singing competition. The voice, where they both acted as coaches.
The couple have been together for almost five years now and are looking to tie the knot soon. The couple appear to come from different worlds, but have somehow reached a dynamic that works well for their relationship.
Stefani and Shelton both learned a lot from each other, on their show, in the music industry and in life in general. For Blake’s sake, hopefully, one thing Stefani has taught her is a proper skin care routine that goes beyond saline.
