Dark skin tends to scar and develops dark blemishes and marks. Dark skin is all about the hyperpigmentation of the skin. Hyperpigmentation occurs when certain skin cells release more pigment i.e. dark color. Dark skin can result from sun exosure and may sometimes occur from redness and bruising.

Darkening of the skin may be due to " blueness " is called cyanosis or purple skin. Certain chemicals and dietary items can also changes the skin color. Skin darkening or hyperpigmentation can be the symptom of severe diseases i.e. Addison's disease and Scleroderma.

It doesn't matter, what type of your skin is, but a universal tendency is that skin tends to darken when expose to sun. Dark skin protects against those skin cancers that are caused by mutations in skin cells induced by ultraviolet light.

Dark skin prevents UV-A radiation from destroying the essential B vitamin folate. Folate is needed for the synthesis of DNA in dividing cells and too low levels of folate in pregnant women are associated with birth defects. A darker skin is more prone to scarring and hyperpigmentation. Dark skin protects vitamin B, it can lead to a vitamin D deficiency.
