As i mentioned i too have melasma... I did Kapalbhati pranayam for a month in october and stopped doing it....Now i have started doing it religiously since last two months and i can see results... My skin is improving.... I plan to continue it and the results of past two months has made me hopeful that Kapalbhati will help me get rid of this condition..... Thank you Sandy, If not for your post i would not have started doing it again, That was the only post i found relating yoga to cure of melasma.....will keep posting....Best wishes for Good health and healthy skin to you all!!
