I have two friends who recently requested natural product recommendations to help combat melasma spots. One developed the dark spots on her face during pregnancy (totally worth the trouble). The other received them as a fun surprise side effect from a new, insurance-prompted birth control switch (not awesome).
There’s no one-treatment-fits all approach to any skin condition, especially one like melasma that has several potential causes, so it’s important to pay attention to what ingredients generate the best results for your skin — and which ingredients are irritating or ineffective on you. I’ve done the research in the hopes of helping out some friends, but I’m happy to share the results with you as well!
