Hi shakila,
This seems to be melasma.Simple treatment will work for this problem.Don't worry.
depigmenting cream is good for this problem. Consult a dermatologist .
Apply a good sunscreen when you go out.
Take fruits containing vit C eg orange,lime,guava,amla etc.

Hi shakila,
most probably what you got is melasma or chloasma or pregnancy mask.
Dont worry visit your nearest dermatologist who will prescribe you depigmenting cream.
Use a good sunscreen like taiyu.
Take lot of vit C in diet,maintain photoprotection .
Pigmentation will subside by 2-3 months.
