The Best Products for Preventing and Fading Melasma, According to Dermatologists
Melasma, a common form of skin discoloration that typically appears as dark-brown patches on the forehead, cheeks, nose, and upper lip, can be exceedingly frustrating to get rid of. Two main factors that contribute to melasma are exposure to UV light and hormone changes, so “summertime and pregnancy are common times when melasma flares,” adds Dr. Nava Greenfield of Schweiger Dermatology Group.
While Greenfield, and the other dermatologists we talked to say a combination of prescription-strength medications and in-office treatments is always the most comprehensive way to treat melasma, there are over-the-counter topical products you can use to help prevent and fade it.
