Have you ever cured melasma?
If you have ever had melasma, you know the detriment that comes with it. Melasma is discoloration of parts of the face (usually affects only women) due to hyperpigmentation. It usually affects both sides of the face parallel, and usually the cheeks, upper lip, or forehead are affected (see photo). Hormones are usually the cause. If you have ever had melasma, can you please comment on the treatment you used to get rid of it.
Oh dear. Do you really want to know. My brothers and some sisters who beat the heck out me growing up know the answer. Not family types but Hopi and Navajo and Pima types. We would laugh at people with the problem as it is common among native american Indians. If you have the problem then you are a sissy pants for not taking the unmistakeable treatment.
You take a clean wash cloth. Rinse it with spring water. And are you ready. Let it dry in the sun. Then you pee pee on it. And then soak your face with it..
What is going on is that your body is passing stuff it needs. Capture it and put it back on your body.
Sorry to gross folks out.
Bravo for even mentioning it. Several of my foster sisters used it growing up for acne scars and it worked. I have never been brave enough to try it!
My dear Eric! Oh my gosh! I actually thought you were joking with your usual humor. Then I read peeples response. True, is it? Very interesting to say the least! Hmmm... may have to think about this one for a while and get my courage up! LOL.
I have it hun and I hate it!!! I never had a problem until I got pregnant with my last child (my girl). Mid pregnancy I got it over my lip and on my nose. I did a whole hub about how to get rid of the "mask of pregnancy" which is melasma. Apple cider vinegar and lemon juice work wonders. I now have very little melasma left. It's not 100% gone because I love the sun too much to stay out of it! That's a big help. NO SUN!!
Thanks for replying, peeples. I will check out your hub. I never had it from pregnancy, but I'm in my mid-40s now so I think my hormones are changing. I have always had a great complexion, so this has been horrendous for me. I appreciate you! :-)
Melasma mainly affects pregnant women and about 10% men.
1.Treatment by lemon juice
The lemon juice lightens the melasma skin discoloration or pigmentation.The acid in lemon juice peels the outer layer of the skin and the grayish brown patches fade away. This natural treatment on a daily basis will show results within three weeks.
2. Use turmeric face scrub
Make paste of turmeric powder (5 tbsp) with warm milk (10 tbsp), and apply it evenly on face, and rinse after 10 minutes with warm water.
3.Use onion Juice
Mix equal parts of onion juice with apple cider vinegar, and apply twice a day with cotton ball.
4. Use Aloe Vera Gel
Apply some fresh aloe vera gel regularly for few days.
Is this the same thing as Chloasma? I had it very mildly when I was pregnant, along with a red dot on the tip of my nose, something like a spider naevus. Both disappeared a few weeks after my baby was born.
Hi Sue. It is the same as Chloasma, but I think that term is used more for the hyperpigmentation that comes with pregnancy. Sometimes, it can be the spider veins that do this as well. It's more difficult to treat than the brown spots. You're lucky!
