Is melasma really caused by sunlight?
Many women often misunderstand that 'sunlight' is the main factor that damages the skin and causes melasma. In fact, clinical studies has shown that 'melasma' are not caused by sunlight or heat alone. Even when working indoor, there is a chance of developing melasma, as the real cause of melasma is from weaken and degenerated skin cells. When the skin is stimulated by various triggers, making the melanin-producing cells to function abnormally and therefore the pigments are concentrated in patches, resulting in melasma that are visible from the outer layer of the skin. This... is the real cause of melasma.
Factors that cause skin cells to deteriorate.
Age or increasing age.
Hormonal levels generally change in the body.

Epidermal melasma : dark brown in color with clear edges because it is located on the top layer of skin cells (superficial).
Dermal melasma : bluish-purple or light gray, irregular unclear edge, located in the deeper layers of the skin (the dermis), harder to treat
Mixed melasma: : often displays combined histological features of both the epidermal and dermal subtype.
Although they have different characteristics, but all the 3 types of melasma are solved in the same way, which is to always strengthen and maintain healthy the skin cells with the use of nutrients, vitamins and herbs especially developed for solving melasma which will enhance the cells throughout the body to function normally, naturally, especially, the melanin cells to distribute evenly as usual.
