  • well some history
    Caucasians have white/light skin because they needed to absorb the sun rays....think of europe....sunrays have esstential vitamins

    black/african descent have darker skin to help block the sun...think of Africa...

    then go on and think of other races and place of origin

    so now that we are able to travel, people are mixed obviously in many parts of the world, some people are not equipped to handle harsh sunrays simply by origin so their skin cells die, become weak, etc...

    So that is why many lighter skinned people will wrinkle are have that leather looking skin when they tan or are in the sun excessively

  • They do not tan! The sun is the #1 cause of wrinkles. I worked with this one woman who no lie looked 30! Not a line on her face! She was pushing 60.

  • The ones that age well take care of their skin. They don't tan like so many white women do, so they don't end up looking like leather handbags by the time they're 40.

    If you're white, just keep your skin moisturized and DON'T GO TANNING!
