welcome to Health Care Magic
if its increasing, u need to see a dermatologist. it may be normal, nothing to be worried about but its better if some specialist sees it first.

Dermatologist Dr. Ashutosh Pandya's  Response
most probably it may be MELASMA, a pigmentory disorder in which there is pigment deposition particularly over nose, cheeks and forehead. it usually aggravates on sunexposure. consult a dermatologist till then do proper sunprotection. As it is a recurrent disease, you can take chemical peeling for long term safety and efficacy.
