How to treat melasma? | Always Be Pure Marine Therapy Dark Spot Correcting Serum Review

Who doesn't like a fair complexion with even skin tone? I first started to notice worsening breakout and melasma during my second pregnancy. This is not uncommon due to the hormonal changes in pregnancy. It's already 1.5years down the road now. But I'm still troubled by these brown or grayish-brown blotches on my face. With the constant summer in Malaysia, this is making my melanocytes (skin pigment producing cells) even more active.


Besides avoiding the sun and putting on sunscreen, there are many other treatments such as chemical peeling and laser treatment, as well as topical preparation like Always Be Pure Marine Therapy Dark Spot Correcting Serum.

Read this article from Harvard Health about Melasma.

Besides that, skin hyperpigmentation issues can also be caused by the ageing process, post-acne (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation) and certain medical conditions such as systemic lupus erythematosus.
