Know your body .. What controls the color of your skin?
We differ in the colors of our skin, between us white and Alsmer and between degrees, but what determines that in our body, this is what we offer in a new episode of the series "Know your body," where the color of human skin is controlled through the interaction of 3 pigments: melanin Carotene and hemoglobin.

Melanin is a brown or black pigment produced by melanocytes to protect the skin from ultraviolet light, gives melanin the brownish skin, provides brown or black hair color, and increases melanin production with skin exposure to higher levels of radiation. UV leading to skin tanning.
Carotene is another pigment in the skin that produces a yellow or orange dye on the skin, which is most noticeable in people with low levels of melanin.

Finally, hemoglobin is a more pronounced pigment in people with little melanin. Hemoglobin is the red pigment found in red blood cells, but can be seen through layers of skin in light red or pink
Hemoglobin appears significantly in skin discoloration during vasodilation periods when the capillaries are open to transfer more blood to the surface of the skin.
