Melasma is a common skin condition characterized by the development of dark, patchy discoloration on the face, particularly on the cheeks, forehead, and upper lip. It is often triggered by hormonal changes, sun exposure, and genetics. While melasma is a chronic condition that can be challenging to treat, various options such as topical creams, chemical peels, and laser therapies can help lighten the pigmentation and improve the appearance of the skin. Sun protection and consistent skincare routines are crucial in managing melasma and preventing its recurrence.
