A recent study from WalletHub looked at the top 150 cities in the United States in terms of size and evaluated them according to 17 different characteristics in terms of their impact on skin. These included risk of skin cancer, pollution, smoking and more. Here’s look at the top 10:

  1. El Paso, Texas
  2. San Antonio, Texas
  3. Austin, Texas
  4. Minneapolis, MN
  5. Santa Rosa, CA
  6. Plano, TX
  7. Memphis, TN
  8. Dallas, TX
  9. Newark, NJ
  10. New York, NY

Based on the list, it seems that Texans can add “skin suitability” to their list of things to be proud of, besides all the cultural attractions, rich history and top sports teams. So how did Texas cities—and the others—make the top 10? Well, we consulted skin care researchers from Adore Cosmetics to review these results, and they pointed out that these top 10 cities seem to be great for the skin for a number of practical reasons.

First, they have the fewest incidences of melanoma per capita, they tend to have fewer days with extreme temperatures, higher amounts of dermatologists per capita and plenty of skin care centers, among other qualities.

So if you’re looking for a place to relocate where your skin is likely to look its best, now you have 10 great options to consider.
