Melasma is a common skin problem. The condition causes dark, discolored patches on your skin. It's also called chloasma, or the “mask of pregnancy,” when it occurs in pregnant women. The condition is much more common in women than men, though men can get it too.

It occurs due to accumulation of melanin pigment over the face especially on cheeks, forehead and jawline. This is aggravated by UV exposure. This can be effectively treated by combination of medicines and chemical peels.
