Darks spots and hyperpigmentation is a lot more common than you think. And given our ethnicity and the tropical country we live in, the majority of Filipinos are prone. Both men and women, but more so on the fairer sex. Especially in women in the older bracket. 

And boo-hoo that is me. Some years ago, I learned how the skin is like a bank that stores ALL of the exposure it goes through from the sun. From UVB when we tan enjoying the white sand beach of Boracay, and UVA from all the light exposure we go through, be it computer light or a simple commute to work. Our skin as we grow older will develop it! SO imagine yourself as a polaroid, slowly but surely white at the beginning yet will show the picture very very soon! Yikes!

But instead of polaroid, that’s what you call MELASMA!

What is Melasma?

Melasma or Chloasma is a common pigmentation disorder that causes brown or gray patches to appear on the skin, primarily on the face. It is also referred to as pekas, dark spots, or skin discoloration. Areas this can be found are in the face in the nose bridge, forehead, cheeks, and upper lip. On the body, you can see them around the forearms, neck, and shoulders. 

And as I mentioned, Melasma is a common skin disorder and top skin problem in tropical climates like ours, the Philippines. It affects mostly 30’s to 50’s women of color or those with brownish skin tones due to our high melanin content in the body. 

Melasma is commonly associated with freckles. Very in now but occurs mostly on fair-skinned individuals like Caucasians. 

What causes Melasma?

It’s important to know that Melasma is triggered. It is formed when the skin is traumatized and the major trauma our skin goes through is UV Exposure or SUN Exposure. What happens is that UV radiation generates free radicals that incite the activity of melanocytes and triggers over production of MELANIN. And this results in MELASMA.

Other risk factors are intake of oral contraceptives and using harsh cosmetics on sensitive skin.

How To Treat Melasma?

There are many ways to treat Melasma! Thankfully! We can’t continue to quarantine our skin just because we are scared of the disease. Let’s brave this and let the light in!

OTC whitening treatments: Hydroquinone is common “beginner” treatment for any skin pigmentation. It is a topical solution that can be in lotion, cream, or liquid form. And you can get this without a prescription. 

Other Topical medicines could also be prescribed by doctors. But Philipines is not wanting for skin lightening products. A quick trip to the drugstore and beauty aisle will show you a plethora of skincare and ways on how to get rid of dark spots. 

Procedures: Melasma can benefit from the advancement in dermatological technology. It includes microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, laser treatments, or light-based procedures. But these treatments should only be done by board-certified dermatologists and it does come at a high price. 

Oral Treatment: The thing about Melasma is the result of overproduction of melanin, the best way to combat it is to reduce the Melanin production to a more controlled level. Continuous use of medication or supplements can provide better results. 

Unlike topical or procedures, oral treatment yields a better result and has long-term effects in reducing melasma.

In fact, Mega We Care poured efforts into conducting thorough clinical studies. In 2004, Malaysia and Thailand researches yielded positive results with efficacy rate of 76% and 85% in the reduction of the size and intensity of melasma lesions.

In 2009, PDS-certified dermatologists, headed by Dra, Evangeline B. Handog, conducted a study on the use of procyanidin with vitamin A, C, and E, focusing on Filipinas. Results showed that in 8 weeks, there was an 85% skin lightening as evidenced with digital photographs.

Is Pynocare safe to take daily?

Yes. It is safe given that ingredients are all-natural and safe for long-term use. Its ingredients can easily be found in other supplements as well. It is a powerful antioxidant and your skin will benefit greatly from long-term use. Women who fall under the category that can get this condition should consider taking Pynocare including those that are frequently exposed to outdoor activities (fieldwork, gardening, sports, and recreational activities, and business travel).

Pynocare, however, is not tested in pregnant or lactating women given that clinical studies are not conducted on women who are pregnant and lactating. Hence, there are no viable scientific research and basis that says it is safe to be taken.

As always, it is better to have your condition assessed by a board-certified doctor prior to taking any ingestible for health and safety reasons.

Sunscreen and UV protection should also be a part of your regimen when taking Pynocare. Sun exposure is a leading contributor to skin pigmentation and so it is advisable to use this continuously.

Remember: One day of unprotected sun exposure can undo months of treatment! Especially to those prone to Melasma.
