If you have melasma, you know that this can be an embarrassing skin condition. It is something that commonly occurs when a woman is pregnant, but it can occur in both men and women and even when pregnancy is not a factor. It causes a person to have patches of discolored skin on their face. Normally, these patches are darker than the color of your skin.
The patches that result from melasma can appear all over the face. It is most common to see them on the chin, on the bridge of the nose, on the cheeks, and on the forehead. However, this skin discoloration can also appear on the neck as well as the arms.
One of the great things about this condition is that it doesn’t do any physical harm. However, it can definitely harm you emotionally. Most individuals who have melasma feel embarrassed because of this skin condition. Thankfully, ZO® skin care products can be used to help individuals who are experiencing this condition either during pregnancy or at other times in their life.
At this very moment, experts do not understand the reason why individuals get melasma. One of the things that they do know is that individuals who have darker colored skin are more likely to experience this skin issue than individuals with lighter skin. It also seems like patients who experience melasma are also more sensitive to progesterone and estrogen. So, for some individuals, they may experience the condition when using hormone therapy or birth control pills. This is, of course, why it is common for women to experience melasma during pregnancy.
Other issues that seem to be associated with melasma are thyroid disease as well as stress. In addition, when a person is exposed to the sun, they notice that their condition gets worse.
