What exactly is melasma?
Melasma is a natural darkening of the skin caused by excessive production of melanin - melanin is the pigment that causes your skin to tan. That's why the sun, which increases melanin production, usualy makes your melasma worse. Melasma only occurs on the areas of your skin that are exposed to the sun.
