I just really wanted to know how many people were aware of this? Just because you are hispanic, native american, or african-american, black, jamaican....does NOT MEAN YOU CAN‘T GET SKIN CANCER!  Just because the skin is dark it does not prevent skin cancer and wrinkles. Yes, the likelihood is decreased, but not eliminated and just for us light skinned people. If I had dark skin, I would wear spf2 on my body, and spf 15 on my face, especially the nose and forehead, lip area. Those are the prominent and sensitive areas! This is a medical fact ladies, if you think that only “white people” get skin cancer, sunburns, and wrinkles, please do some research! We are told to put it on the children we care for and the adult clients as well—and I have seen a pretty nasty sunburn on a very dark skinned man...that required medical attention.
