QUESTION: How do I get rid of pregnancy mask also known as melasma? I got it while I was pregnant, it has been 6months and it’s still there! It goes across the bridge of my nose but the one that really bothers me is above my lip it looks like I have a mustache. I know that the sun will make it 10 times worse so I am using sunscreen everyday. Is there bleach or anything that will get rid of or at least help?
Pregnancy mask is common post pregnancy and I feel for you. You have some options here; Skin lighteners would be ideal but you want one that really works. SkinRxClinic Skin Lightener Liquid Gel is a favorite of mine. It contains 2% hydroquinone which is a safe but effective amount. I have never had the hyperpigmention from Pregnancy…I did however wax my upper lip and did not protect it with SPF (I have learned my lesson) but I too ended up with a brown mustache!. Another option is an “At Home” chemical peel, I would recommend using Lactic Acid it is designed to lighten and diminish the look of hyperpigmention and you can also learn about this product on the same website. Go to www.SkinRxClinic.com and enter “lightener” in the search box and the skin lightener will pull up. For the Lactic Acid “At Home” peel information just reference “lactic” and the product will pull up. It is worth looking into!
