Birth control pills, pregnancy, and hormone therapy can all trigger melasma.
Stress and thyroid disease are also thought to be causes of melasma. Additionally, heat and sun exposure can cause melasma because ultraviolet rays affect the cells that control pigment (melanocytes).

Treating melasma requires maintenance and prevention for life, understanding this and knowing how to prevent, using homecare products you will be able to maintain and prevent further damage.
