Melanin protects skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, which can burn the skin, and over time, could reduce its elasticity and cause a person to age prematurely.
It’s true that more skin pigment = more melanin = more natural protection, but people with dark skin are still at risk for skin cancer. And it’s often deadlier because it’s hidden in places like hands and feet and not diagnosed until it’s in a serious stage. Bob Marley died at the age of 36 from skin cancer that went undiagnosed for years on his foot. Call 480-540-7555 to order a SPF with zinc that will work for your skin type.
