How can I get rid of my pregnancy mask?

I have darker pigmentation along my UPPER LIP! Of all places! Is there anything over-the-counter I can use to lighten it? I've been told to wear sunscreen, as the sunshine makes it worse.

  • I had this around my lower jaw, all the way around. It's all hormonal. If you can afford to have a chemical peel, this is the best way to get rid of it. You won't be able to go anywhere for about a week though. I tried different things but nothing worked except for this. You should always wear sunscreen because the sun definitely makes it worse. And once you see how good your skin looks after the peel, you won't want to get any sun anyway! Good luck!

  • I had the butterfly mask around my eyes, it went away right after I had the baby. There was nothing I could do to cover it up.
