Causes Of Discoloration Of Skin During Pregnancy

During pregnancy, a lot of women experience dark-coloured blotchy patches on their face and body. This condition is called Melasma or Chloasma.

These dark patches are sometimes referred to and known as mask of pregnancy. This is because, the pigmentation happens around the forehead, nose and cheekbones and takes the shape of a mask.

Some women experience more pigmentation than others when they expose themselves to sunlight. The skin in turn produces more melanin to reduce the damage done by the sun’s rays.

Here are a few Ayurvedic remedies to manage skin pigmentation during pregnancy.

1) Grape Seed Oil: Grape seed oil is great for treating Melasma. The oil is rich in proanthocyanidins, which effectively reduce the secretion of melanin and prevent dark patches.

2) Pomegranate Juice: Fresh pomegranate juice contains ellagic acids, which are found to lighten melasma patches.

3) Aloe Vera Gel: Our skin during pregnancy tends to become dry. Aloe vera is a perfect remedy for both discolouration and dry skin. It also treats the skin from sun damage.
