Why People Have Different Skin Colors

Why do people have different skin colors?

The skin color of humans—which ranges from light pink to dark brown—is determined by the amount and type of the pigment melanin in the skin. Melanin comes in two types: phaeomelanin (red to yellow) and eumelanin (dark brown to black). Both the amount and the type are determined by four to six genes. One copy of each of those genes is inherited from a person’s father and one from a person’s mother. Each gene comes in several coding sequences, which results in a variety of skin colors. Skin color is also affected by exposure to sunlight.


People with skin and eyes that are lighter in color are more likely to have freckles because they have less melanin, a chemical in the skin that protects it from sun damage by reflecting and absorbing ultraviolet rays. Instead of tanning, they freckle. Some people’s freckles fade away almost completely in the winter and then return in the summer, when the person is more likely to sunburn. Sunscreen can help protect everyone (freckled or not) from the Sun’s harmful rays.
