Apparently there’s good news for those of us who are single on Valentine’s Day (and every other day of the year). As recently discovered by John Mayer, our single status could be the key to flawless skin. In an Instagram story posted on Monday, Mayer revealed that his buttery smooth skin is so flawless because he doesn’t love anyone. “I don’t smoke and I don’t drink anymore and I don’t go out in the sun and I don’t eat and I don’t love anybody,” he explains in his video.

Clearly, this is going high up on our Valentine’s Day mood board. While Mayer’s age-defying dermis could be the product of his loveless life
because it can be difficult to find that special someone when you have a racist past, it also helps that he has an expensive skincare routine. According to The Cut, his daily routine includes Natural Bissé Diamond Life Infusion cream, Diamond Extreme Eyecream, C+C Vitamin Complex and Diamond Mist to help amplify his clear complexion. I’m jealous AF about all those products.
For real though, although John Mayer’s loneliness might not be able to take all of the credit for his smooth skin, he still might be onto something. After all, relationships can be stressful. Even if you aren’t in a relationship and you’re just stuck in that awkward pre-DTR limbo, dealing with fuckboys is enough to put the calmest person under some serious mental pressure. Not only can stress give you mental fatigue, it can also stress out your pores in the form of stress pimples. While Teen Vogue explains that there are several ways to clear up your stress breakouts, the best way is just to eliminate any excessive stress from your life. So kick those emotionally detached men out of your inbox, and live your glorious life with clear skin. Thanks for the V-Day inspo, John.
