Best and Worst Cities for Skin

The sunny seasons are fast approaching, so it’s especially important to give clients extra reminders to protect their skin. It's hard to believe, but many are still taking their skin for granted. According to a recent report from the American Cancer Society, more than five million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed every year, including more than 76,000 incidences of invasive melanoma, which spreads to other parts of the body, in 2016 alone. Stress, pollution, smoking, and poor nutrition also make their marks (literally) on the skin. How much of an impact these factors have on the skin varies widely across the country and from city to city. Here’s an eye-opening list of the best and worst cities for skin based on statistics gathered by WalletHub’s analysts.
