Condition or disease
Dermatology/Skin - Other
This study seeks to examine if there is a difference between ideal and actual skin tone among minority populations. In addition, we hope to assess whether various demographic factors as well as disparity between ideal and actual skin tone effect skin protective behaviors (i.e. sun screen use, dermatologist appointments, skin self-exams) or skin destructive behaviors (i.e. outdoor tanning, tanning salon use, use of skin lightening products) in minority populations.
Frequency of skin tone differences between ideal and actual [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
The frequency at which research participants indicate ideal skin tone differences versus actual will be assessed in the questionnaire. The unit of measure will be a numerical value, number of participants.
