A common skin disorder

Melasma is a dark skin discoloration appearing typically on sun-exposed areas of the face.

It’s characterized by brown or blue-gray patches or spots similar to freckles and caused by overproduction of cells that make melanin. Young women with darker skin tones are at greatest risk. Pregnant women, women on oral birth control, and women on hormone replacement therapy are especially prone to develop melasma.

About melasma

The skin condition known as melasma is characterized by brown or blue-grey patches as well as freckle-like spots.

Melasma is closely associated with the female hormones estrogen and progesterone, which makes it a common skin disorder for women. The overproduction of melanin cells in your skin can also be triggered by exposure to UV light from the sun.  While the condition is completely harmless, many people are not happy with the way it affects their appearance.
