NYC is the 2nd Most Wrinkle-Prone Region in the US! Guess why.

Living in the city that never sleeps is a unique experience filled with many perks ranging from the best shopping, 24 hour delivery services, and cultural experiences at every turn. All of these obvious “pluses” happen to also come with a big “minus”.  According to a new study by Sperling’s BestPlaces and RoC Skincare, the Big Apple is the second most wrinkle-prone region in the U.S.!!! This study assesses lifestyle, occupational and environmental factors that can add wear and tear to the skin (of which NYC scored higher then average in all categories). Some leading factors include climate conditions, stress levels and not enough sleep!!

Restless nights, long commutes (New Yorkers have the longest commute median of 37.1 minutes each way, which is 35% higher then average), environmental factors, including sun (we get 27% more then the average annually!(, drastic weather (from hot to cold) and air and traffic pollutants are all reasons that New Yorkers are showing signs of age more rapid than other cities in the nation!

So get more sleep, savor the weekends, and remember stressing about that deadline is only contributing to those ugly frown lines!! Don’t forget to wear sunscreen and add a retinol to your skincare regimen. RoC Skincare was one of the first to use a retinol in their products and it is the only active ingredient that’s been proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
