Melasma is the butterfly shaped pigmentation seen commonly on the face. Melasma usually peaks between the age of 20 and 40, when estrogen levels are at their highest. Recent research has established a link between stress and melasma. Stress can activate the propriomelanocortrin gene that prompts the cells to produce more pigment. Apart from prescription drugs, patients with melasma need to avoid oral contraceptive pills, facial waxing and steaming and hair coloring. Intake of antioxidants is very helpful.
