Sun Damage

Sun exposure stimulates the production of melanin, a dark pigment in the epidermis or top layer of the skin. Melanin protects the other layers of the skin from sun damage. Over time and with exposure to the sun, your skin increases production of melanin to protect itself; and as it does this, the uneven increase in melanin creates the dark spots on your skin. The sun can also cause a permanent dilation of small blood vessels, giving your skin a mottled, reddish appearance.

People with a dark complexion naturally have more protection than those with a lighter one, but they can still experience sun damage including irregular pigmentation and wrinkles.
