Freckles (ephelides) are small brown spots seen mostly in persons with light skin and red hair, blue, gren or hazel eye colors. They show up in early stages of the life, and increase in summer decrease in winter.
The freckles emerge in regions that are more exposed to the sun such as face, hands, breast and back. These brown spots derive from the accumulation of melanin that is a pigment produced by the skin. The existing amount of melanin in the body determines tones of the persons’ skin colors. When exposed to the sun, the skin produces more melanin as a reaction to reduce the damage that may come from the UV lights. And this causes the melanin accumulation, consequently the freckle formation.
If you don’t want freckle to be formed on your skin, the most effective measure that can be taken is the protection from the sun. By this means, our body does not produce melanin. Freckles on the face do not turn into skin cancer. However, those who have freckle are more sensitive to sunlight.
Freckles may show similarity with the age spots (lentigos). But, the age spots show up in later stages of the life, and may emerge on all types of skin.
