Dark-skinned women are prone to Melasma which occurs throughout middle age and menopausal stage as hormonal fluctuations trigger the disease. But, did you know that men can be affected too? Yes! New research showed that even men may suffer from the chronic disorder.
What is Melasma?
From the Greek word “melas” meaning black, melasma is prevalent among people with brown or darker skin. It is estimated to affect 8.8 percent of Hispanic females in the United States and about 40 percent of Southeast Asian women. – Dr. Claudia Aguirre, neuroscientist and skincare expert, wrote in an article on the International Dermal Institute (IDI).
