Melasma caused from waxing and adrenal fatigueI first noticed melasma after I had my upper lip waxed, although I can not remember for sure if it was already darkening before waxing. For almost two years I have been trying to get rid of this. I believe I am suffering from adrenal fatigue as well and I understand that melasma can be a result of adrenal fatigue. As I work on healing my adrenals, I notice that the melasma seems to lighten and darken but never go away completely. An interesting and annoying fact that I see is that dandelion and milk thistle seem to make the melasma worse for me. I wonder if anyone else has noticed too. Right now I use diaper rash cream on my lip (40% zinc) and then I cover with a mineral powder. It works good when the melasma is lighter. When the melasma is dark, I pretty much have to deal with it and try to stay out of the public. boo.
I have tried MSM, HQ, kojic acid, acv, and anything else I could. Does anyone with adrenal fatigue have any suggestions?

pills can trigger melasma ( also called the mask of pregnancy) and
hormones are off balance.
I had melasma after only taking birth control pills for 2 months. I stopped,
and the melasma was there for several years, and made worse by the sun.
