Melasma and skin pigmentations or dark spots are some of the most frustrating skin conditions many women struggle with nowadays. Although they both show up in a form of dark pigmented spots on the skin there is a big difference in underlying causes and therefore both conditions require different treatments.
Dark Spots also called Hyperpigmentation or Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are generally a result of Post-blemish scarring from a stubborn breakout or age spots from long-term sun exposure. These pigmented spots are caused by inflammation in the skin and if caught early and treated properly can be reversible. With gentle exfoliation and proper sun protection, the spots will fade and you will enjoy clear skin again.

What is melasma?
Melasma and liver spots usually show up in larger, blotchy pigmented spots most commonly on the forehead, cheeks, and upper lip area, and can be extremely difficult to lighten.
This skin condition mostly affects women. Also called the ‘mask of pregnancy because this type of pigmentation quite often shows up during pregnancy or after long-term birth control use. While many dermatologists associate this condition strictly with hormonal imbalances there is another major factor that will contribute to the accessive pigmentation of the skin: liver damage
It has been proven that toxin overload in the liver from prescription medications, long-term alcohol use, environmental and dietary toxins overtime responsible for forming pigmented spots, liver spots, and melasma on the skin. Therefore if you want to successfully improve this skin condition besides using skin care products formulated to treat pigmentation you also have to address the internal cause and help detoxify the liver.
