Melasma, a condition in which brown patches appear on the face, is a very common skin problem. Most people get it on their cheeks, bridge of their nose, forehead, chin, and above their upper lip. Women are more susceptible to have melasma, especially during pregnancy. Many different factors contribute to melasma, but sun exposure and hormonal changes are two most common triggers.
