Most of us are born with beautiful baby skin. But exposure to sunlight results in sun damaged skin reflected by uneven skin tones, pigmentations, age spots and freckling.
Melasma basically means dark skin discolouration that normally occurs of the face appearing like a bat-wing on the cheeks. Although sun damage is the major culprit, hormonal changes play a role as well especially during post-pregnancy, intake of oral contraceptive pills and menopausal.
It presents as dark irregular patches can be found on upper cheeks, nose, lips and forehead.
Women with light brown skin type who are frequently exposed to sunlight unprotected, with genetic predisposition or on hormonal therapy are particularly prone to develop this skin condition.
Other types of skin pigmentation include: freckles, solar lentigines, Hori Nevus, Nevus of Ota, Bakers Nevus etc.
