The bottom line about the mask of pregnancy is that prevention is key! If you’re pregnant and already have the mask of pregnancy, continue to apply sunscreen and use makeup to lessen the visibility of the patches. You can also try applying lemon to your face for a lightening effect, as well as using a specially formulated pregnancy moisturizer with anti-chloasma ingredients in it such as Organic Bearberry Skin Brightening Moisturizer (for oily skin) or Organic Luminescent Moisturizer (for dry or sensitive skin).
