A naturally healthy skin paves way for a healthy radiance and boosts your persona immensely. The skin color is determined based on the presence and amount of Melanin, a brown pigment found in skin, hair and iris (eye). The skin variations are primarily genetic and based on the exposure to Sunlight.
