Splotchy Looking Skin

Dark or brown patches on the cheeks, nose, forehead and sometimes also the upper lip are often caused by melasma.

This is most common among women, especially pregnant women and those taking oral contraceptives, as well as people with thyroid disease.

When melanocytes (the pigment producing cells on skin) are exposed to UV light or an influx of hormones, they get overstimulated and produce more melanin which results in brown discoloration.

Product Recommendations

To lighten up your skin, we recommend Clarity which contains melanin-suppressing botanical extracts and vitamins A, C and E to prevent free radical damage and brighten skin.
