How Can I Lighten the Melasma on My Face?

Posted: Jun 28 2016



Melasma also know as chloasma is a darker patch of hyper pigmented skin on the face that is most likely caused by hormonal fluctuations and/or sun exposure and that can also be very difficult to lighten.  For some the onset of melasma begins with pregnancy or while taking birth control or even during puberty.  For some, it can be that while working or playing sports they are constantly outside and exposed to the sun.  It is purely cosmetic but can take a toll on your self esteem due to it being on the face and depending on how large the area is.  It is also important to note that melasma not only affects women but can also affect men as well.  It's also important to note that this can last for years or even be lifelong if not taken care of as soon as possible.

In order to lighten a dark patch of skin it is best to use a quality skin whitening product which fades the area over time.  Using a natural skin whitening product on the face lightens the area if applied only to the darker area, however some people choose to apply the skin whitening product to the entire face which will lighten the entire face overall.  

The process of lightening a darker patch of skin is not something that happens overnight.  Your regimen must be consistent, which includes cleansing and toning as well as applying your skin whitening products morning and night without fail.

How to Lighten Melasma

First, you must cleanse the skin and make sure that it is clean and well exfoliated so that it is able to accept the other products that are applied and absorb into the skin properly.  It is best to use a good glycolic cleanser, which both cleans and exfoliates.  This will ensure the skin is prepped and ready to be toned.

The next thing that should be applied is a quality moisturizing toner which helps to deep clean the face and get any residual deep down dirt off of the skin.  This leaves it like a blank canvas ready to accept the skin whitening products and helping them to work both better and faster to lighten any area of hyperpigmentation and melasma.

The final step is to apply a quality skin whitening cream that is specially formulated to lighten melasma and hyperpigmentation on the face.  It is crucial that a formula made just for the face is applied as the face is a very sensitive area.  Any formula that is used to lighten the skin on the face must be gentle, effective, and be derived from natural ingredients such as undecylenoyl phenylalanine (Sepiwhite MSH).  Not only is it crucial to apply a formula that is made especially for the face but it is also very important that it is applied to the face both in the morning and evening for best results.
