The term that Black skin does not crack is to describe Black people ageing as ageless.

The black skin apart from the melanin that protect the skin it also how we are prepared to look after our skin. Due to harsh cold weather our skin gets dry and loses moisture so we are taught from a young age into creaming our skin with Vaseline, Aloe Vera or Cocoa butter from bath to keep our skin looking from ashy and dry.

When the weather is hot it is advisable for the skin to be care for to glow with the bronze of the sun by keeping the skin moisturised.

The other issues are that the elders of today did not use excessive make up to block up the skin pores into not breathing or glowing with youthfulness.


Back in the day the only people or industries who use excessive make up was for models who were being photographed or actors or actresses on movie set.  It was not really a thing that the normal public day to day people would use.


When using the excessive makeup you would have special face cleanser to remove all the excessive with the assisting of soap and water as well to make sure all was removed.

After removing  your make up you would then once again cream your face with the creams, especially around your eyes and lips to keep them from cracking.

When Mac cosmetic came out on the market it was original just used for makeup artists for their work before it became accessible for public usage for everyday.
