  • I believe it's because other skintypes hide it better. From the non-white people I know, they have as much acne as the white people I know. Also I think boys are more likely to have acne than girls.

  • because they don't have melanin so they are affected more by the harmful rays of sun..

    • Even though UV can cause freckles, wrinkles, and cancerous moles, it can actually help with acne

  • I would be offended but you're not wrong. It's possible there's some relation to melanin production and acne, but umm it sure. But I think it's just genetic. Kinda like how east Asian people are more prone to getting redness in their skin when they drink alcohol.

  • Normally I would be angry with this considering I had severe cystic acne for 10 years but the reason I had acne was genetic and I had extreme hormonal imbalance. I took Accutane to rid me of it.

  • I've never noticed this to be true. I've always had perfect skin. I thought it had something to do with diet, stress and hormonal balance? Maybe I'm wrong however?

  • I'm not sure if it's true, but if it were maybe it's :

    1) The color contrast between red and white is harsher, so it looks more visible on a white person than on a person with a darker skin tone.

    2) Or they produce more skin oil? I don't know.

    I'm not white but I'm not dark either and I didn't have acne.

    • please read Q again.. i asked why white people having more not only white people have

    • Eh I don't necessarily think they have it more.

  • White women/males produce more oil then any other race. It's a genetic thing.

  • Not true... but white people usually have a different kind of skin than other races. It's common to be a little more pink or dry than others.

  • I don't think it's necessarily that they do. I think it's because it's more visual.
