Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2014
Key West Health & Beauty’s (http://www.keywesthealthandbeauty.com) team of skin care experts revealed their much anticipated study results of the 12 best and worst U.S. cities for your skin today and released an accompanying infographic on their website. It appears that the location a person lives in can have a major impact on the skin and contribute to many unwanted signs of aging like wrinkles and more.
When asked how they determined the results, founder and skin care expert Jan Jordan said the following. “As multi-location day spa owners with over 35 years of combined experience, we have performed thousands of facials and corrective skin care treatments on our clients. Through that experience, we have found that excessive sun exposure is the primary culprit for skin damage in most cases. It can also increase the risk of skin cancer. Of course, this is common knowledge among skin care experts and the research we conducted on MayoClinic.org backed that up.”
“We compared annual sun exposure rates by percentage and hours per city and used that data as our primary ranking formula. Next, we analyzed the cities with the highest pollution rates based on ozone levels and year round particle pollution, since environmental pollutants can also wreak havoc on a person's skin. We evaluated those results and were able to compile our list of the 12 best and worst cities.”
The results can be found at http://keywesthealthandbeauty.com/12-best-worst-us-cities-for-your-skin/. There is no encouraging news for California residents with 4 of their cities taking the top worst spots. Anchorage, Alaska takes the top spot for best city with some surprising results following not far behind.
“Although you can’t control your city’s pollution levels, you can control what appears to be the most significant factor, excessive sun exposure. To avoid many unwanted signs of aging and take proper skin care, always apply a sunscreen whenever sun exposure is inevitable. This will help beat the odds, even if you live in one of the more unfavorable cities,” Jordan said.
