    Plenty of dark skinned people have wrinkles also, the old black don’t crack is not accurate, lighter skin reflects light while darker skin absorbs it making lines and wrinkles more pronounced when light, darker complexions have more sun protection the number one ager, I have some color but we have light skinned people in our family also that are aging as well as the darker skinned people because they stayed out of the sun, did not smoke and took care of themselves.
