When one thinks of the word Black, particularly in regard to race, the assumption is that something happened that caused the skin's melanin production to increase, thus darkening the skin's pigmentation. In fact, the opposite is true. In cases in which an individual is extremely white with no coloring, the skin's melanin production has been suppressed. If the skin is red, the skin has no melanin, which also is an aberration. Normal skin tones are light brown to medium brown.
The darkening of the skin is caused by the introduction into the body of a substance that causes the hair follicles in the skin and in the scalp to close. When the hair follicles close, oil production ceases, and both the skin and the hair become extremely dry. This causes the hair to break, and the skin to darken. In severe cases, the person will lose all of the hair on their skin and scalp, resulting in a condition known as alopecia.
If you have extremely dark skin, you should ask the Lord God Almighty to cleanse your head, your neck, and your body, so that the hair follicles will reopen to permit oil production. In some instances, the oil glands will need to be resuscitated. If you have a young infant, you are advised to breast feed and avoid infant formulas, because many of them contain the substance that darkens the skin, and dries the skin and scalp.
