African people and every black person around the world should keep embracing their melanin and skin color with pride and stop the rampant spread of bleaching.

The Melanin pigment gives human skin, hair, and eyes their color. Dark-skinned people have more melanin in their skin than light-skinned people have. Melanin is produced by cells called melanocytes. It provides some protection again skin damage from the sun, and the melanocytes increase their production of melanin in response to sun exposure.

Freckles, which occur in people of all races, are small, concentrated areas of increased melanin production.

Melanin protects your skin by absorbing harmful rays, including UVA, UVB, UVC and blue light.

Melanin aid in Protection against reactive oxygen species (ROS). Reactive oxygen species are byproducts of your body’s cell processes. When ROS accumulate in your cells, they can lead to stress, premature aging and health concerns such as diabetes and cancer. Melanin scavenges for ROS, boosting antioxidants and eliminating free radicals.

Studies also suggest that melanin may aid in immune system support and the reduction of inflammation in your body.

Meanwhile skin lightening and bleaching causes redness and swelling (skin irritation and inflammation), a burning or stinging sensation, itchy and flaky skin, skin turning dark or too light, thinning of the skin, visible blood vessels in the skin, scarring, kidney, liver or nerve damage, abnormalities in a newborn baby (if used during pregnancy).

Let’s learn how to embrace ourself and love our body. BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL, Black is powerful. #africa
