Dermamelan could help Kirsty Allsop’s Chloasma… Daily Mail got it wrong

We were disgusted to read reports about how the Daily Mail accused Location Location Location’s presenter Kirsty Allsop of ‘sporting a moustache’, when really she was suffering from a skin condition called Chloasma.

Chloasma is a skin condition caused by hormonal fluctuations, and particularly women who have had children can get it. Chloasma causes areas of the skin to take on a darker pigmentation, which from far off (especially to the idiotic eyes of some celeb gossips), could i suppose, look like hair or as the Daily Mail put it, a moustache.

The newspaper has quite rightly apologised to Kirsty since the mistake was made and there has been a lot of support online from fans. As Kirsty quite rightly pointed out, it’s a small price to pay for the joys of having children. Of course it’s not ideal having darker patches of skin and there are depigmentation treatments out there that promote healthy skin renewal and enable the skin to regain its natural lighter tone. But if it doesn’t bother you like Kirsty, there’s nothing to worry about!

Dermamelan depigmentation treatment is one of the most effective treatments available for chloasma.
