We human beings come in a delightful rainbow of colors, from porcelain to pink to olive and brown to darkest ebony. We are all "people of color," and we have the innate intelligence of our bodies to thank for giving each of us the perfect skin tone for our native habitat. Skin of color is now the accepted way that leading dermatologists and surgeons refer to the variation in skin tones we see in our ever-changing world. In fact, there are at least 7 different skin tones ranging from near ebony to light beige. Whether from the Mediterranean, African, Asian, South Pacific, Latin, or Native American origin, skin of color has more of the pigment called melanin.
