Yes, I seriously turn uberdark if I'm out in the heat for even less than 5 minutes. It's annoying

My skin is highly tolerant of the sun. It's programmed in my genes to have dark skin. I've read numerous articles and have summed it up really concisely. Basically it's said its an adaptive evolutionary process that happens over countless generations. For instance the more ultraviolet light your parents parents parents and so on were exposed to your genes in order to protect you from the sun would require you to have more melanin(one major reason why skin pigmentation is so varied) in your skin so the next generations genes would be coded to have more melanin. Another factor is the bodies need for vitamin D(this is developed from exposure in the sun). With a person coming from a cooler climate with less ultraviolet light a natural adaptation was made in order to continue developing enough vitamin D. The melanin factor was reduced. This happened so more sunlight could be taken in because the high level of melanin inhibited UV rays from a harsher climate it now had to adapt to a cooler climate.
This is an immensely concise summary. I'm not a freaking encyclopedia look the rest up in your own time.
