The beauty industry is full of women who are dark skinned.
And they’re not alone.
The beauty world has a long history of creating dark skin in order to appeal to the male gaze.
And it has a problem.
Dark skin can cause a host of problems, including acne, premature aging, and skin cancer.
The beauty industry has tried to address these issues through a wide range of products.
But they’ve been slow to do so.
Dark skin is often associated with darker hair and nails.
But research suggests that’s just a byproduct of a lot of other factors.
In a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, researchers looked at a total of 8,600 women over the age of 30.
The researchers found that women who had darker skin were less likely to have a history of skin cancer than those who didn’t have darker skin.
“Women who had a higher percentage of darker skin are at increased risk for developing skin cancer,” the researchers wrote in the study.
For example, women with darker skin, compared to women without it, were more likely to be diagnosed with nonmelanoma skin cancer, melanoma, and non-melanocytic skin cancer (NMCC).
“There are many factors that contribute to this, including genetics, diet, and lifestyle,” said Dr. Daniel Krammer, the lead author of the study and an assistant professor of dermatology at the University of Washington.
The study’s findings echo a recent study published by the American Journal of Epidemiology.
Researchers analyzed data from more than 11,000 women and found that dark skin is a significant risk factor for melanoma.
In fact, dark skin was more than 10 times more likely than white skin to be associated with melanoma risk.
It’s not just darker skin that’s at risk.
The study also found that those with darker-skinned women were more prone to getting skin cancers.
“The findings suggest that the dark-skinned people have more melanoma in their skin, so this may explain why they are at higher risk,” Dr. Kramber said.
That’s not to say dark skin causes cancer.
Researchers found that it’s possible to get melanoma when you have a genetic predisposition to melanoma (called a C677T mutation).
But the findings aren’t enough to change how we look or treat dark skin.
“For people who have the mutation, it’s a very complex disease, so it’s very hard to predict exactly how it’s going to affect them,” said Kramver.
“But the fact that we have the C677-T mutation, that’s probably going to be a big factor in how the disease progresses.”
Dr. Krommer also said that there’s a lot more work to be done to better understand how genetics affect the progression of melanoma and how it affects the disease process.
There are other factors that can increase your risk of melanosis, including: a lack of exercise and a sedentary lifestyle; and a genetic risk for the disease.
There’s even more research to be conducted.
But for now, the beauty industry seems to have largely stuck to the same message: dark skin means less money, less glamour, less love, and less happiness.
