That's rightIt's wrong


Pregnancy causes a strong increase in the level of female hormones, estrogens, causing at the same time an increase in melanin synthesis (the origin of tanning). This hyperpigmentation is manifested by brown or gray spots, localized most often in the middle of the forehead, on the cheekbones and the perimeter of the mouth. It takes the form of pigmented brown plates and irregular shape.
