Homework: Smokey Robinson collaborates on skin-care line
Smokey Robinson, 76, credits the habits that were instilled in him as a child with helping him maintain a healthy, active lifestyle — including being able to tour the country.
Robinson, who created his legend writing classic songs such as “My Girl” and “I Second That Emotion” for Motown, says he has practiced yoga for 35 years and is a vegetarian. “I'm only going to get this one body, so I want to be healthy as long as possible. I believe in taking care of myself,” he said.
His new skin-care line is an extension of that. Robinson, a former resident of Pine, is collaborating on the line with his wife, Frances, an interior designer. Their products — My Girl for women and Get Ready for men — were created for people of color.
