If you look closely, in most of the pictures of Mr. Trump, his skin looks not so natural because of the light orange shade. First, please note that the presidential physician who works at the White House denied any assumptions that the president's health condition could be cause for concern. Quite on the contrary, he emphasized that the 72-year-old man is in "excellent" physical state and he has "incredibly good genes."

Regarding Mr. Trump's orange skin color, there are several hypotheses. The most logical one is that it's due to suntan. It is commonly known that before his inauguration, the mogul had often gone to Florida where he got the chance to enjoy sunbathing in the territory of Mar-a-Lago club, which he owns. However, over the last few years, the president didn't have that much time for leisure.

The second theory stated that there are sunbeds in the White House. This hypothesis is also viable as the skin of the orbital area of Trump's face stands out because of its pale color. We could assume that he used small protection goggles to keep his eyes safe. Along with this, public servants close to the president dispelled rumors about the sunbeds' existence on the territory of the White House.

And, finally, the third explanation of the orange skin phenomenon claimed that Trump could be using a spray tan. The man didn't hide that he used cosmetic products from time to time: semi-transparent powder which he put on himself before filming or public speeches. However, the argument against this theory was that Donald's shirts were snow-white and even the neatest person wouldn't be able to avoid getting at least some of the spray tan onto his clothes.

This topic is also very popular on the Quora website. All of the three above-mentioned theories had their followers, even though some alternative views appeared as well. One of the net users noted that the unnatural skin color could be a sign of health issues due to the president's love for fast-food.

One of the presumptions was that Trump suffered from hemochromatosis – a genetic disease involving iron overload in the body, which also affects the pigmentation of the skin.

Another user from the same website noted that a similar effect could appear due to lighting during filming. And it does seem that in the daylight Donald's skin doesn't look as orange. Or, perhaps, his powder isn't that transparent?

And, naturally, there were lots of jokes on the topic on social media.

Whatever the real reason is, we hope that the presidential physician didn't make a mistake and there is no risk for Mr. Trump's health. Now, own up: have you ever noticed that his skin has such an unusual color?
