We were so excited when Skinceuticals approached our team about a partnership with local Houston blogger, House of Harper. Through her visit, Caroline was able to bring to light a skincare topic that many women struggle with: dark spots or melasma after pregnancy.
Melasma is sometimes referred to as the “pregnancy mask” and can be an extremely difficult condition to treat without help from your healthcare provider. Even after you take control of melasma, the maintenance can be time-consuming (and we all know, time is something busy moms don’t have a lot of!) Melasma can be caused by fluctuating hormone levels and can be exacerbated by sun exposure. The dark marks usually appear on the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin of affected patients.
We’re sharing the skincare regimen that Caroline will be following below. If you are struggling to get your melasma under control, please contact Advanced Dermatology today to schedule an appointment with one of our skincare experts today.
