Melasma is a skin hyperpigmentation that creates dark spots on areas of the skin exposed to the sun, usually on the face. There are three types of melasma: epidermal, dermal and mixed. It is triggered by an excessive production of melanin, a dark pigment found in the skin, hair, and eye membranes. This overproduction is usually caused by hormonal changes, such as pregnancy. To mitigate melasma, you can use skincare products containing specific ingredients that can help reduce its appearance, such as azelaic acid, arbutin or vitamin C. Our Aza 10 brightening cream is a great option for this!
