That's not exactly right. Darker skin is thicker and has more melanin, which helps with aging. White skin is very thin, which makes to more prone to wrinkles.

Wrinkles are not the only sign of aging

Aging is primarily due to sun exposure, blacks burn less because the darker skin acts as a natural base tan..the same way that I use fake tan before laying out to prevent burning or why you never see a Sunburnt Mexican..the darker skin adds protection.


Good job Harvard with the Black Supremacist Propaganda though.

I'm white as white can be and look about 10 yrs younger than I am. I stay out of the sun as much as possible even with all the other white people pushing me and trying to shame me into tanning. It's like they're afraid of me being white. They make jokes about my skin but they can look old and baked if they want.

Do you people even read the articles?

Researcher Alexa Kimball, professor of dermatology at Harvard Medical School, said: 'Many of us felt that people with darker skin aged better because of more pigment and better photo [sunlight] protection, but we have found there is much more to it than that.
'They have other characteristics in their skin which confer good ageing, which until now we had no idea about.'

I'm dying right now from reading your status "who needs facts when you have conjecture" and your response.

+1 to you good sir. Some people can't help it, agendas must be pushed! lol.
