Fusion Posted A Video on the Science of Black Women’s Skin and the Comments are Delicious!

If you’re Black, you’re more than familiar with the saying, “Black don’t crack.” We can look at numerous Black women who are celebrities and they look at least 10 years younger than their real age. Black women aging slower than White women is not just a myth. There’s actual science behind it and Fusion posted a video with factual evidence.

Aside from the video telling us Black women’s skin ages 10 years slower than White women’s skin, the more melanin you have means the more protection against sun exposure, White women can show signs of aging faster because they produce less melanin and all women should protect their skin from sun exposure, the video’s Facebook comments were the best part!

Regarding Black women’s skin aging 10 years slower than White women’s skin, one commenter wrote, “More like 13.5 years but I don’t want to be petty.”

Another wrote, “It’s not a perk…it’s how we were made, born, created and blessed to be.”

Someone also said, “I’m 40 and I look younger than some 26 year old white women. I love being Black.”
