    1) Black people have more melanin than white people, which protects the skin from the sun's harmful rays more effectively

    2) Black people have fuller lips than whites, which give a more youthful look to the face.

    3)Black people have more facial fat than whites, gives a more youthful appearance. I'm curious if I said "infantile" or "less-defined", you would be applauding

    4)Black people tend to have oiler skin than whites on average. This helps with minimizing the appearance of wrinkles
    lol wtf, this is so true. this is probably the damn reason why ppl think i am 15 or 16 meanwhile im almost fking 18 LOL

    i do possess a few pretty strong african traits which help me in turn look younger than i am

    Fat also helps with gauntness. Facial fat and collagen decreases as you get older so if you have very little when you're younger, it's very easy to appear hollowed out and bony in the face when you get old. The downside to that is that facial fat also sags so if you have too much, that'll sag down into your jowls. Black people have a nice middle ground between too little facial fat (Europeans) and too much facial fat (East Asians) though so neither problem hits us particularly hard. Melanin also helps prevent sagging since it keeps collagen from being destroyed.

    every other group is at the bottom and age fast
    I didn't want to include mix race populations like Latinos in this because of their admixture and obviously they would be above everyone

    You do know white people have melanin too right?They have a type called pheomelanin. And I am asking you what is it about melanin that keeps you youthful, since that's nothing but quack rhetoric you don't seem to have good reasoning for at all.

    What?! What the hell does having fuller lips making you more scientifically youthful now,is fuller lips having more powers than melanin?

    This depends. Some people of depending on the backgrounds and individual of course, don't have that much facial fat in their teens but they would retain more during their infant and toddler years but not so much the later years in life.With West Africans (and their descendants) its true the facial fat in West Africans bulks on during the teenage or mid 20s stages , the thing is the kind of fat people of African descent accumulate during their later years is different than the facial fat they have in their 20s, and the older people get the fuller and fatter the face becomesnice try but I don't buy it.

    Alright this might make sense, but I can't tell which group has more oily skin than the other or non black people.Non-black and non-white vary in their skin types.

    The question is why does melanin have youthful qualities?

    @Menelik and others. Its a simple science.
    Dark skin basically has an extra layer of protection against DNA damage due to Ultra Violet radiation.
    The effect of some of this DNA damage is basically the "aging" process.


    Background
    Skin ageing is the combined result of repeated exposure to
    ultraviolet radiation and the passage of time, "........"
    However, skin or cellular ageing has mainly been studied on
    Caucasian individuals, frequently characterized by Fitzpatrick
    skin phototypes I, II or III; whereas skin fibroblasts from blackskinned
    individuals have rarely been investigated. In this study,
    we demonstrated, in vitro, that NF-jB, a predominant regulator
    of ageing, was less activated in dermal fibroblasts derived from
    individuals of African ancestry (AF) than in Caucasian skin
    fibroblasts
    (CF).

    This is why under a UV lense when white folks put on sunscreen it looks like they are putting black paint all over their body.

    Ok but is this because of fibroblasts or melanin? I didn’t deny that African people age different , question is,why?

    Is "Dark Skin" also considered skintype 4-5 on fitzpatrick scale? Or is it exclusively referred to skintype 6? / black skin tone?

    reason why im asking, is cuz i noticed my skin is also fairly thick, it also looks kind of leathery'ish' i dont know how to describe it lol

    lol, nigga we aint talking about the dark.

    in general white ppl (probably like you) age far faster than blacks in general.

    you probably already had a beard at the age of 18 or 20. im almost 18 i barely have any facial hair still xD and ppl say i look younger than i actually am. black genetics are a real factor in age definitely, and i think i took more from my african side phenotypically and genetically tbh.

    i never suffered from much sickness, stress, neurological disorders (even despite the fact that in my past i went through ALOT of shit) and look at yall whities xD

    i notice white people age faster "IN GENERAL" not all white ppl. ive seen some dutch that have INSANE baby-faces and look like they are 14 years old meanwhile they are 19 or 20. in white ppl its either you age REAL fast or you still look like your 12 in your mid twenties, LOL
