I haven't been diagnosed with a thyroid problem, but I was wondering if balancing your hormones can help with this?
Will Balancing Thyroid/hormones Help with Melasma?

Thyroid problems and melasma
Thyroid disease is a lesser known cause of melasma. I would recommend speaking to your internist or endocrinologist followed by application of the MelaPeel to correct the skin discoloration. I would also begin treatment with Melarase creams twice daily.
