Melasma most commonly affects sun-exposed areas such as:
The sun’s harmful rays are no joke! That is why you need to wear sunscreen on your face, even though it may not seem fair. When out in the sun for long periods of time make sure that you have applied all over exposed surfaces including your face with a good SPF because melanin doesn’t work enough by itself and me too!!
Melasma is a condition in which melanocytes create extra pigmentation, and it most often affects people with darker complexions. One of the reasons for this may be that they have more melatonin than those who are lighter-skinned; however, there has not been enough research to confirm or deny this theory. The second important factor seems to involve sun exposure–the risk increases when one spends time outdoors without adequate sunscreen protection on their face every day (so plan well), especially during peak hours between 10 am-2 pm.
The best way to prevent melasma from forming under your eyes is by wearing sunglasses before spending any amount of time outside because eye damage can cause discoloration as well! Melasma is a skin condition that affects many people, but especially women. It’s more common in dark-skinned individuals. The stress from enduring racism and discrimination might lead some white or light-brown-skinned female patients with less sun exposure than their counterparts to develop this undesired side effect as well!
The above passage offers insight into what melasma may be like for both men (less) and lighter complexioned races besides Latinos who live closer to polar regions where there are not intense sunlight exposures such as those found among Arab Americans residing on Michigan’s east coast near Detroit; Arabs experience 13.4% – 15%.
I am not a fan of the summer sun! But I love to take advantage of it for an all-over tan. I find that when you go in and out, like from poolside shade then sitting by your window with direct sunlight streaming through, is what really makes me golden brown! The best part about this strategy is because my skin has been exposed to so much UV damage at once–in moderation!–my pigment darkens, even more, each time I do it (think: bronze goddess). It also helps if you use high-quality sunscreen during these stints outside or have some aloe vera nearby…just in case.
It’s important to know the risks and benefits of treatment. There are a number of different lasers that may be used for melasma, but there is little evidence-based research available on them so more study needs to happen in order to determine how effective they actually are.

You’ve been struggling with the appearance of your skin, and you have tried countless products and treatments. You might want to try a laser though!

Be sure before trying it out though because not everyone will experience positive results; sometimes treatments can make symptoms worse instead of better. Before deciding what’s best for me, I talked about my options with someone who has used both lasers and pulsed light devices (PLDs) as well as LED-based treatment modalities:
The person had more good things than bad things to say about their experiences using.
Once in a while, you might get a sunburn and feel like your face is just not the same. But don’t worry!
