how to get rid of chloasma or the mask of pregnancy?

Difficult: This is a very tough condition to treat well. Some women will gradually improve over time. If the condition is due to a medicine, like Estrogens in birth control pills, then stopping the pills at the first sign of the problem can help keep it from getting more severe. However, treatment is not that successful.
