After birth, women may experience some facial problems such as:

  • Melasma: Melasma is a condition where increased pigmentation patches appear on the skin, often appearing on the sides of the cheeks. The cause of melasma is the increased concentration of pregnancy hormones during pregnancy, and these hormones will gradually decrease after the baby is born. Therefore, if well cared for, post-birth melasma can be significantly improved.
