Melasma is a skin pigment disorder marked by dark brown, symmetric patches of pigment on the face. During pregnancy this is called the "mask of pregnancy."

Sunscreens and avoiding sun exposure can prevent melasma from becoming worse. Other treatment may include prescription creams to lighten the patches.
