Dark Skin & Skincare:Why Melanin Matters
Dark skin tones get their rich, deep beauty from specialcells called Melanocytes. These cells produce Melanosomes, which inturn synthesize an essential natural pigment – Melanin. Melanin plays avital role in protecting the skin from UV light, as it helps to absorb anddisperse solar radiation. Everyone has Melanosomes, but if you have a dark skintone, your Melanosomes are larger and more widely-distributed.

Acne: Tends to develop at alater age in dark skin complexion, and can have serious consequences, suchas scarring (keloids) and severe pigmentation.
Ashy Skin: Darkskin often develops dry, irritated patches with a scaly, flakyappearance that looks like dandruff, especially on the arms, elbows, andfeet.
