For example, if you have black skin then you take a vitamin C injection to make your skin look white, will your child’s skin turn white or remain black during pregnancy and childbirth? The problem is that the original skin of the inun black before the injection of vitamin C.
Hello Nitatheana, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
A person's skin color is determined by the genes that carry skin color. Genes are the nature of the material contained in every cell of the human body, which will be passed on from parents to children. In the human body there are various types of genes, each of these genes carry certain traits that cause a child to have characteristics similar to that of both parents. Some examples of genes are genes carrying skin color, eye shape, ear shape, blood type, and there are even certain disease-carrying genes that can be passed from parents to children.
This skin color carrier gene will not change even if a person uses certain skin treatments to change their skin color to be whiter and brighter (vitamin C injections, for example). Therefore, even if your skin turns white after you do skin care, your child's skin color will not turn white either. The child's skin will have the potential to become whiter if the child's father has a skin color that is whiter than the mother.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
