Hi,

Melasma  is thought to be the stimulation of melanocytes or pigment-producing cells by the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone to produce more melanin pigments when the skin is exposed to sun.  There are no conclusive studies showing that soy milk can actually worsen melasma.  Topical depigmenting agents, tretinoin, facial peel  and laser treatment may help with managing melasma.

Take care and regards.
