Sun exposure can also play a role since melanocytes produce more pigmentation when exposed to UV light, meaning that reducing sun exposure can mean the difference between your mask of pregnancy being barely there or hard to ignore.
Daily sun protection is a must if you want your mask of pregnancy to be as minimal as possible.
Mask of pregnancy will almost always resolve itself once hormone levels go back to normal, but this may take several months.
How to treat mask of pregnancy:
When you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should not take or use prescription medications or medicated creams to treat mask of pregnancy to avoid the transfer of the medications to your child.
When you are still pregnant or breastfeeding the best way to keep mask of pregnancy to a minimum is to be diligent about your sun exposure – we’re talking hats and sunscreen daily.
And if all else fails, a good concealer can work wonders while the condition sticks around.
Once you have given birth and are no longer breastfeeding, you can look into medicated treatment options to help speed along the clearing of the Chloasma.
Creams with hydroquinone are the most commonly prescribed treatment to return your skin to its usual pigmentation post-pregnancy.
