Study: This is the Most Wrinkle-Prone City in America

By Klaudia Tirico / June 23, 2014

We know that environmental aggressors play a huge role in our skin’s aging process, but did you know that your geographic location can also be the cause of all those wrinkles? We can’t win, guys. 
A recent study held by RoC Skincare, in partnership with independent research firm Sperling’s BestPlaces, determined the 50 most wrinkle-prone regions in the U.S. But while many studies rely on the impact of your lifestyle, occupation and environment, this one added a few unique points to the party: stress levels, traffic commutes and diet. And guess what? NYC ranked at number two! The meta-analysis of original and existing research concluded that since residents have the longest commute and third-highest number of sleepless nights, Big Apple residents are the second most wrinkle-prone in America. Are you surprised?
Check out the complete list of the 50 most wrinkle-prone regions in the U.S. below. Did your area make the cut? Tweet your rank using the hashtag #RoCWrinkleRanking to share and compare your results with others.
