According to Daily Glow, your geographic location can make a major difference in your skin’s health. “Where you live has a huge influence on your skin’s health and appearance,” says Jessica Wu, MD. “To find out which cities in the US are most likely to have citizens with glowing complexions, we analyzed data like dermatologists per capita, skin-cancer rates, climate statistics, healthy-lifestyle indicators, and more.”

Daily Glow reveals the ten best and ten worst cities for your skin, and includes a more comprehensive ranking of the fifty-five biggest cities in the United States.

Among the best? Austin, TX, home of NaturallyCurly! Despite the hot and sunny weather, Austin “makes it easy to be sun smart by offering parks packed with shady trails such as the Barton Creek Greenbelt and Ladybird Lake.” The physically active, health-conscious population doesn’t hurt either.

You can see the full slideshows of the ten best and ten worst on Daily Glow.
