Apollo has three siblings, including two brothers he describes as conventionally “manly and masculine.” As for himself, “I’m a little, ‘Eh’,” he says while sticking out his tongue, a sassy gesture that signals he is not.
But, the “Endlessly” singer is all about encouraging other men to embrace their beauty routines.
“I hope that men take it more seriously. I date men, so it’s like, you should probably do something a little extra,” he says. “Every guy wants to have good skin. You have to apply yourself and actually put this into your lifestyle. All my friends, even my brothers, see how much I put into it.”

Apollo thinks of himself as a “very complex human” and even the topic of skin care strikes a chord within him. He believes that the face is “the window to your soul” and expressions are a “reflection of how you feel inside.”
How does that tie into his favorite products? Well, he poses, “Why wouldn’t you want [skin] to look a little dewy?”
Maybe Apollo is ready to date himself like his hit single “Evergreen (You Didn’t Deserve Me at All)” would suggest, and his attention toward his wellbeing is a sign of that.
He hopes to inspire others to feel the same way as he embarks on a new chapter with Youth to the People. “It’s okay to take care of you and think about yourself and be a little selfish sometimes and, like, wash your face,” he says with a gentle laugh.
