We often get asked if help: clear skin can help Melasma? First we need to look at what it is.

What is Melasma?

It is a common skin issue that causes brown to grey-brown patches, usually on the face, to appear. It can also appear on areas of the body that have been exposed to the sun, such as the forearms and neck.

The cause is unknown, but it affects more women than men. And if you have darker skin, it is even more common due to the skin containing active melanocytes (pigment producing cells in skin) than people with light skin.

Other triggers include:

  • Over-exposure to sun – UV light stimulates melanocytes to over-produce pigment. Sun exposure is the main reason it recurs once faded.
  • Hormones – It is common during pregnancy, though referred to as Chloasma, but it can also be triggered by birth control pill and HRT.

Can help: clear skin help Melasma?
