Hi Lavette, I battled melasma for over 18 years. I have a yellow complexion which made the condition seem even more pronounced. Like you, I tried everything I could think of but had no success. I got fed up, listened to my body, and developed my own system at home to remedy the mask. Go to my facebook page, MelaClear, and read about my story. I truly believe that anyone can have the same success that I did and you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to do it.I simply want the world to know that there is hope.
