What Is Melasma?

Melasma Overview

Melasma is a skin disorder with irregular facial pigmentation, often affecting women in their reproductive years due to sun exposure, hormones, and genetics.

Genetic Influence

Genetics can make some individuals more prone to melasma when exposed to UV and hormonal factors.

Hormonal Factors

Hormones, including estrogen and progesterone, play a role in melasma, affected by both internal factors (abnormal hormone levels and pregnancy) and external factors (fertility drugs, contraceptives, hormone therapy,
and phytoestrogen-rich foods).

UV Exposure

The primary risk factor for melasma is UV exposure, as even minimal sun exposure can trigger its recurrence after fading.

Chinese Medical Theory

According to Chinese medical theory, the face relies on nourishment by Qi and Blood from internal organs to maintain its color and vitality.

Any disruption in the internal organ function can lead to facial skin discoloration.

Emotional disturbances, improper diet, and prolonged lack of sleep can harm the organs and disrupt Qi function.
