Question: Why skin becomes darker.
Answer: it's common to develop blotchy spots of darker skin when you're pregnant, a condition called melasma or chloasma. Melasma is also sometimes referred to as the mask of pregnancy because the splotches typically show up around your upper lip, nose, cheekbones, and forehead in the shape of a mask. You may also develop dark patches on your cheeks, along your jawline, or on your forearms and other parts of your body that are exposed to the sun. What's more, skin that's already more pigmented – such as your nipples, freckles, scars, and the skin of your genitals – may become even darker during pregnancy. This also tends to happen in areas where friction is common, such as your underarms and inner thighs. How your body changes during pregnancy Watch how your body changes and makes room for your developing baby during pregnancy. See all pregnancy videos What causes melasma? Melasma may be triggered by hormonal changes during pregnancy, which stimulate a temporary increase in the amount of melanin your body produces. Melanin is the natural substance that gives color to hair, skin, and eyes. Sun exposure plays a role too. Women with darker complexions are more likely to have melasma than women with lighter skin. You're also more likely to develop melasma if it runs in your family. Is my linea nigra related to melasma? The same increased production of melanin that causes the facial splotches of melasma also causes the linea nigra, or dark line that you may notice running down your belly. Before pregnancy, the linea alba (white line) ran from your belly button to your pubic bone, though you probably didn't notice it because it was the same color as the rest of your skin. During pregnancy, pigmentation from increased melanin production turns the linea alba into the linea nigra (black line). The linea nigra will probably fade back to its pre-pregnancy color several months after you deliver your baby. How can I prevent melasma from getting worse during pregnancy? All changes in skin pigmentation due to melasma usually disappear on their own after delivery, but you can do a few things to safely minimize darkened spots on your skin during pregnancy: Use sun protection. This is crucial because exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays triggers melasma and intensifies pigment changes. Use a broad-spectrum sunblock (a formula that protects against both UVA and UVB rays) with SPF 30 or higher every day, even when it's not sunny, and reapply often during the day if you're outside. Even if you don't plan to leave the house or spend much time outside, it's a good idea to apply sun protection as part of your morning routine. The American Academy of Dermatology cautions that your skin is exposed to a significant amount of UV light whenever you walk down the street, ride in a car, or even sit inside near a window. When you're outside, wear a wide-brimmed hat as well as a long-sleeved shirt if you have pigmentation changes on your arms. Limit the time you spend in the sun, especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. And definitely avoid tanning salons. Don't wax. Using wax to remove hair can cause skin inflammation that worsens melasma, especially in areas of your body that are affected by pigmentation changes. Use hypoallergenic skin care products.Cleansers and face creams that irritate your skin may make melasma worse.
