MELASMA: TIPS FOR MANAGING

August 9, 2018

https://youtu.be/tuHZGKBodog Melasma is a common skin problem that causes brown to gray-brown patches on the face. Although the exact causes of melasma are unclear, common triggers include sun exposure, pregnancy, birth control pills, and cosmetics.

  1. Wear sunscreen daily: One of the most common treatments for melasma is sun protection. Since sunlight triggers melasma, it is important to wear sunscreen every day, even on cloudy days and after swimming or sweating.
  2. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses when you're outside.
  3. Choose gentle skin care products: Choose skin care products that don't sting or burn, as products that irritate the skin may worsen melasma.
  4. Avoid waxing: Waxing may cause skin inflammation which can worsen melasma
