Natural treatment of melasma involves topical applications of natural substances as well as internal treatments. Natural supplements, including apple cider vinegar, are nontoxic and can safely treat skin conditions and hyperpigmentation.
What is Melasma?
Melasma is a term used to describe a darkened or tan facial discoloration. The condition typically appears in women ages 20 to 50 years old and is more common in women with olive or darker skin tones. The cause of melasma is not known; however, it is commonly associated with exposure to the sun, oral contraceptives and pregnancy.
Melasma is defined by a single symptom, which is the appearance of symmetrical brown or gray discoloration on the face. The discoloration typically covers different parts of the face including the cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose, above the upper lip and chin. Seldom, the discoloration may appear on the forearms or neck.
Natural Treatments for Hyperpigmentation
Common treatment of melasma involves medical intervention; however, hyperpigmentation can be effectively treated using natural methods. Application of apple cider vinegar and apricot oil or the consumption of beta carotene can eliminate melasma as well as other dry skin issues. Maintaining a balanced diet and skincare regimen also helps eliminate the condition.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar works to naturally balance the pH of the skin. Applied to the skin or even taken orally, apple cider vinegar eliminates darkness in the skin. Additionally, apple cider vinegar eliminates toxins and freshens the skin.
Apricot Kernel Oil
Derived from a stone fruit, apricot kernel oil is cold-pressed from the dried seeds of the apricot. The oil is natural, light-colored and rich in fatty acids, vitamins A, C and E. When applied to the skin, apricot kernel oil nourishes the skin and eliminates inflammation, soothing and healing melasma.
A member of the carotenoid family, beta carotene is a potent antioxidant. The compound also contains an extremely high level of vitamin. These two characteristics combined make it effective for treating the discoloration associated with melasma . Likewise, when applied topically, the compound alleviates inflammation of the skin.
Typically diagnosed by examining the characteristic facial darkening, melasma is often referred to as “pregnancy mask.” Topical application of natural substances and even oral supplements can cure the condition.

My friend is suffering from melasma, it's like a dirt which is in her both the cheek. Please help me to get the ACV I want try that for her.
[SIDE EFFECTS] Hello, I am really desperate! I want to get rid of my melasma because I'm getting married in 3 months. I tried ACV and all I am seeing is red blotches on top of the melasma. I am feeling very discouraged and don't know what to do. If anyone has tried ACV and got the same red blotches please let me know if this is normal. I don't know if I should continue with ACV or move on to something else. If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it!
