The Best Natural Treatments for Melasma

Melasma is a condition of the skin causing dark spots and patches, generally on the face.

These freckle-like marks can appear brown, grayish-brown, bluish-gray, or tan. It is relatively common and frequently mistaken for other skin conditions.

Women are most likely to be affected by melasma; when it is in a highly visible area or perceived as a blemish or blight, it can be a difficult condition to live with.

Your Questions Answered

What Is Melasma?

This condition can affect anybody but has been linked to female hormones and is seen most often in women with darker skin. It is also known as the "mask of pregnancy" due to its common occurrence during that stage of life.

Is There a Cure?

While treatments for hyperpigmentation may fade the dark spots, they are not a permanent cure for the condition and it can come back, particularly when you fail to use proper sun protection when spending time outside. Many people say melasma fades in the winter and becomes more noticeable in the warmer weather.

What Are Its Causes?

While causes are not always apparent, the following factors seem to impact the development of melasma:

•     Pregnancy

•     Birth control pills

•     Hormone replacement therapy

•     Sun exposure

Is Melasma Cancer?

No, it is not a type of cancer, nor is it a sign of skin cancer.

Where Does It Occur?

The symmetrical dark patches that are a hallmark of the skin condition are most often seen in the following areas:

•     Cheeks

•     Chin

•     Forehead

•     Nose

•     Upper lip

•     Arms or neck (less commonly)

How To Treat Melasma Naturally

If the skin condition is caused by birth control pills, hormone therapy, or pregnancy, the discoloration may fade on its own when the condition ceases. If you find the dark patches bothersome, you can use natural remedies. Mother Nature has effective solutions if you know where to look.

Use this especially for my night time routine and I wake up with a glowing complexion! I’ve noticed a difference in evening out my skin and feels like it has repaired over-night. It’s great after using the Ultimate Hydrating Elixir Cream.

I just put a few drops on my hands, warm it up to activate and pat gently all over my face and neck. This is the first time I’ve ever used truely organic products and specifically feels very calming - it’s like I’m treating myself every night.

A small amount goes a long way and I’m loving the results so far!

I absolutely love this product! When you first open the bottle you are welcomed by earthy aroma. The oil is on the thicker side with a rich texture. Just a few drops is all you need and immediately absorbs into the skin without a greasy finish.

I was pleasantly surprised at how moisturized my skin was even after a few hours of being out and about in the city. I am very picky about the products I put on my face and always check the ingredient label first.

I was happy to see all the ingredients were oils I am familiar with and have used in the past in my routine. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. It's a fantastic moisturizer and even after a few days of use I could see how happy my skin was.



Gushiv is a master of beauty! Master on her own. As I love the nature I do love and use Gushiv elixir products.

The smell takes me to a beautiful journey, the oil and the ingredients makes my skin smooth and youthful.

I would highly recommend all the products, especially to people who love nature and support the eco system!

Excellent product for all kind of skin type men and woman.

This cream has done WONDERS for my skin! I have acne-prone, sensitive skin that is easily susceptible to breakouts, and usually am at a loss for finding a cream that actually helps me manage these traits.

The Clear Skin Elixir Cream stands out from all of the other (many) creams I’ve tried though because of its effectiveness at actually keeping my acne outbreaks at bay!

The lightness of the cream and the fact that it’s made from natural ingredients and doesn’t contain elements that are harmful to my skin makes me love it even more.

Since I started using it, I’ve gotten so many compliments from friends, family, coworkers, and even strangers about how beautiful, clear, and radiant my skin looks. I highly recommend this product!
