There's a scientific reason for this!

29 black celeb moms who are clearly ageless vampires. Science says that the more melanin you have, the more protected you are from UV rays. The "magic" pigment blocks UV radiation from damaging DNA. There is a reason dermatologists recommend sunscreen and models include it in their skincare routines. The more melanin you have the less susceptible you are to the aging effects of the sun. Hence why it can seem like black women age slower than those with fairer skin. It only makes sense that when you combine a luxury beauty regimen with authentic melanin, you get some very famous black women who appear to be aging backwards. These 30 black moms make getting older look like your new #BodyGoals. So who made the list? Well, the youngest star is a 36-year-old mother of three who is revered with a god-like status amongst fans. She is a singer most of the time, but every now and then she might pop up on the big screen. The oldest icon, you might say, isn't too different from our youngest. A 78-year-old diva with two kids, a biopic starring another member of this list, and an inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In fact, the youngest and oldest moms on this list have actually performed together. So what's your best guess? Get Started
