Melasma, or sometimes know as “the mask of pregnancy”, is a problem for many women. Melasma, is the brown pigmentation that occurs on the face as a result of hormones and sunlight. Melasma does not only come out when a woman is pregnant. Hormone treatments like birth control pills can also produce melasma. Although many times difficult to treat, with a good daily regimen and sun protection, melasma can be improved. See Obagi treatment kit in our product store.
