Let’s start with the magic ingredient here! Oh, sorry! Science noob ALERT! Ahm… the magic PIGMENT! This is what makes your eyes appear brown, blue, grey, green, and all sorts of color palette colors. Do you think your brown eyes appeared in one day? NO! That pigment has been working so hard for you! Do you know what it is? Time of revelation here! MELANIN! What labor exploitation! 

Melanin is a natural skin pigment present in our skin, under the iris of our eyes, hairs, and even brain. This pigment is responsible for the color of skin, hair, and eyes. It has been observed that, in the presence of sunlight, our body produces more melanin. SO! So! Did I sound like a science expert here? No? Huh! Let me add more then!

One must have observed why African people are darker in complexion with dark brown to black eyes. This is simply because more exposure to the sun leads to more secretion of melanin causing our skin, hair, and even eye color to be darker than our European mates. European people usually are found with much lighter eye color, one of the main reasons for that is less exposure to the sun.

Do you know what will happen if you don’t pay homage to this pigment? Read ahead and be aware of labor exploitation!

The absence or very little presence of melanin in our body leads to diseases such as Albinism, Melasma, vitiligo, and even Parkinson’s disease.

Be disease-free and appreciate Mr. Melanin’s hard work!
