The average American experiences 3,600 bad skin days in a lifetime with lack of sleep, poor hydration, and even the daily commute being contributing factors, according to new research.
A study examining the skincare routines and worries of 2,000 Americans found that, on average, Americans feel they experience five bad skin days each month.
That means that in a single year, the average American will suffer from 60 terrible skin days.
But what exactly is contributing to Americans’ poor skin? Stress seems to be the number one factor towards suboptimal skin.
The study, which was conducted by OnePoll, in conjunction with CeraVe, unearthed other factors which included lack of sleep, poor hydration, poor diet/consuming certain foods, and sweating too much as reasons why Americans are encountering troublesome skin.
