Adorable yet troubling at the same time, freckles may fade or become darker with exposure to the sun. It can be a troubling skin issue to individuals who want to achieve a countenance that is clear, fresh and “age-less”.
Freckles can be more noticeable when you are exposed to direct sunlight. This is because when the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin, is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays, it thickens and cause the pigment-producing cells to produce more melanin, making the freckles on your skin darken.
Freckles may also appear on children as young as one or two years old and it may develop on places where it is likely to be expose to the sun such as the body, face and arms.
However, freckles can also be caused by genes. If your parents or siblings have them, it is more likely you will have them as well. Those with fairer skin and light or red hair are more likely to have freckles than those with darker complexion.

Freckles occur as small brown spots usually on the face, especially on the cheeks as well as the arms. It can be caused by genetics and exposure to the sun. They can be lightened and “removed” depending on the size, shape, number and concentration.
