Melasma reacts differently to skincare products, treatments, and ingredients than normal skin. Because of this, it can be challenging to decipher between a skincare method that will help your skin and one that will harm it. Still, melasma can have impacts on the skin, such as hyperpigmentation, skin sensitivity, and more, that affect the confidence of those with it. So what safe practices can people with melasma incorporate into their skincare to improve the look and feel of their skin?
