So from going tanning when I was younger, I noticed I now have whats called Melasma. It is pigmentation of the skin so certain areas are darker then others. Unfortuently I have it on my upper lip (It almost looks like a light coffee stain) I also have it on my nose. Everytime I go into the sun it gets darker. Im trying to use creams to lighten up the dark spots. Has anyone had this issue and know what works? Please let me know ! Thanks !

Ask your doctor for Retin-A, works wonders.

@Stina11287: I’m African American and I had it a year ago. It was across the bottom of my lip. I went to see Derm and he prescribed me a bleaching cream. It was invisible to other people in two weeks but it took about a month for it to totally go away. Me getting off B/C changed the hormones in my body and caused it. He said sometimes it’s referred to as the pregnancy mask because many pregnant women get it too when their hormones change. I did NOT like it.
