How Ethnicity Affects Wrinkling /Ageing

Ethnicity and Wrinkles

Does a persons ethnic background have any effect on the rate or degree to which their skin will wrinkle?

The short answer is, yes. Ethnicity does affect the appearance of skin as it ages but whether you are of Caucasian, African American, Asian, Mediterranean, or Middle Eastern decent there is one thing that we all have in common.

If we live long enough, we will get old and our skin will show it.

Those who have darker skin tones will not wrinkle as quickly or as deeply as those who have lighter skin tones.

The substance in the skin that provides the darker hue, melanin, acts as a natural sun block or filter and slows the signs of skin aging.

Lighter skin will begin to wrinkle 10 to 20 years earlier than dark skin.

Before those who have darker skin start to celebrate, though, there is something more you should know.

While your lighter skinned friends may show fine lines and wrinkles quicker, you will develop folds in your mid facial area sooner.

They wont be noticeable when the face is at rest but they are still there.

Those who have a darker skin tone must be very careful of using such cosmetic procedures as chemical peels, laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, etc.

because the pigment in darker skin can be damaged resulting in lighter spots.

Skin care for both light and dark complexions is an imperative measure to help delay wrinkling. Both light skinned and dark skinned individuals need to use sunscreen when they are going to be exposed to direct sunlight.

Careful daily skin cleansing is the same for both skin types. The use of sun glasses to prevent crows feet is advised for all humans regardless of skin color.
