The Bachelor’s Laura Byrne reveals her skin pigmentation issues are ‘three times worse’ this pregnancy as she shares a makeup-free selfie
She documented her struggles with skin pigmentation during her first pregnancy.
And pregnant Bachelor star Laura Byrne has now revealed she’s been struggling with melasma yet again, as she prepares to welcoming her second child with fiancé Matty Johnson.
Posting a makeup-free selfie to Instagram on Thursday, the heavily pregnant 34-year-old admitted her melasma was ‘three times worse’ the second time around.

‘I spoke a lot about melasma during my last pregnancy,’ she began her refreshingly candid caption.
‘Mainly because most days I felt like s**t about my pigmentation which (thanks to raging hormones) had taken up residence like someone had spilt an espresso across my entire face’, the jewellery designer continued.
Laura said her melasma returned with a vengeance when she fell pregnant for the second time.

‘Truthfully it’s about 3 x worse this pregnancy, plus I have some cute new wrinkles to really balance the whole shebang out,’ she mused.
The brunette completed her post by reminding her fans not to buy into the superficial world of Instagram.
‘This is just a reminder that if you have melasma you ain’t alone, and life isn’t an endless scroll of smooth skin, pert butts and boobs that make eye contact – and thank god for that,’ she declared.

Melasma is a skin condition that causes brown or gray-brown patches to appear on the face.
Matty and Laura, who met on The Bachelor in 2017, welcomed their first child, daughter Marlie Mae, in June last year.
In April 2019, Matty got down on bended knee and popped the question to Laura while on holiday in Fiji.
