Melasma (mask of pregnancy, chloasma) is patches of dark skin that appears on the area of the face which is exposed to sun. It is more common in females and individuals with darker skin-tones who live in sunny atmospheres. It is thought to be basically identified with external sun exposure, hormones like anticonception medication pills, and inner hormonal changes as found in pregnancy. Melasma is basically darker-than-typical skin influencing the cheeks, brow, upper lip, nose and button, as in a symmetrical way. It might be constrained to the cheeks and nose or simply happen overlying the jaw.
