Stains in the mustache area?
Has it happened to you that when you pluck your mustache area, it gets darker over time? The sun, hormonal changes, and even pregnancy can cause dark spots to appear in the mustache area. But guess what? those spots can disappear! These types of spots are better known as “melasma” and appear more generally in this area because it is a very sensitive area and if we tend to wax, it becomes even more delicate. Mustache stains are one of the most difficult stains to remove and tend to remain perennial. Even so, there are professional treatments and remedies that will clear up these spots.
As I said before, the causes of spots can be due to sun exposure, pregnancy or routines that change our hormonal balance, but the main cause is due to hair removal and not using sunscreen. Another cause is the use of bronzers or creams that contain compounds that are derived from tar, oral contraceptives and hormonal changes. To avoid the appearance of spots in this area, the use of sunscreen is essential. Daily. At least half an hour before exposing yourself to the sun.
One of my favorite natural remedies is to squeeze a lemon in half a glass of water and moisten the area. The next day, wash with plenty of water and apply moisturizer and sunscreen. Of course, there are also products that are specially formulated to fade sun spots and spots like melasma. Opt to pick ones that are rich in azelaic acid. Also, do not hesitate to go to a skin specialist to see which products are the most suitable depending on the severity of your melasma.
