Linea Nigra and areola are the vertical dark lines which appear on belly during the pregnancy. This is the line extended to public area from the belly; sometimes the line is too shorter. Hormones and pigment productions are increased during pregnancy, causing the particular line darkened and fade gradually after the pregnancy. Depending on our colour, it may take a year after the pregnancy.
