Beautiful Skin of Color : A Comprehensive Guide to Asian, Olive, and Dark Skin
The united states, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, the South Pacific, or any group of Native Americans, your genes react in a similar fashion to genes in the darkest skin. And chances are, you’ll have received confusing advice — or no advice at all — about how to care for your skin.
