Why don't black people have acne?

Acne is a common skin condition, but it appears to be less common in people with darker skin tones. Research suggests that the melanin in dark skin may be protective against acne, and people with darker skin tend to have fewer of the hormones that trigger breakouts. Other factors, such as genetics, diet, and stress, may also play a role in why some people are more prone to acne than others.
