We all know that one person who claims to never think about skin care, goes to bed with makeup on, and has never even heard of a serum — yet still has perfect skin. Apparently, among his group of friends, Shawn Mendes is that person, and skin-care lovers are not having it.

As BuzzFeed reported, in response to a question about his skin-care routine during an interview, Shawn said, "I'm not lying when I tell you guys that I don't wash my face! I meditate a lot. I think skin is very based on how you're feeling. You could rub dirt on your face, and if you're happy, you won't break out!"

In the words of Kris Jenner, this is a case for the American Academy of Dermatology. Shawn isn't totally wrong; stress and other emotional factors can affect how your skin looks. Still, we wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't remind you not to rub dirt on your face. (Unless we're talking clay masks, of course.)

Naturally, Shawn's fans are losing their minds over the thought of the singer moving through life without so much as a single face wipe. A few of the reactions are literally just people screaming at him to wash his face:

Of course, even if we disagree with Shawn's skin-care routine, it's important to remember to be polite and respectful toward celebrities — they're people, too. Nevertheless, maybe someone should get Shawn some travel-size face wipes next time he's on the road. Couldn't hurt.
