Why do black people age well?

This is from my observations that black people age better than white. My co worker is 62 and his face is wrinkle free! You can tell he's an older guy but his skin is smooth. Meanwhile i'm in my 30 and starting to see my skin age. What makes their skin age slower?

    Two reasons, black people have thicker skin which holds more fat and fills in wrinkles. Also they have more melanin in their skin which is responsible for the aging process as well as the darker color skin.
