Melasma, a kind of skin pigmentation that causes grey-brown spots over the face. It has a more common problem in women than in men. It occurs mostly on the cheeks, forehead, nose, chin and above the upper lip. It can also develop on different areas of body that have too much exposure to the sun, like the fore arms and neck.
It is such a common occurrence during pregnancy that some people call it the mask of pregnancy. Hormones can trigger Melasma.
The most natural pigmentation treatment for is protection from sun. The following steps can be taken to avoid Melasma:
- Every day application of sunscreen
- Reapply sunscreen every two hours
