Here's how you can be freckles free

Here's how you can be freckles free

They are predominantly common in people who have fair skin. They appear on upper-body skin areas like the cheeks, nose, arms, and upper shoulders and appear on people as young as 1 or 2 years of age.

Most freckles on a person's skin are generally uniform in colour. On different people, freckles may differ in colour, they are reddish, yellow, tan, light brown, brown, or black but they are mostly slightly darker than the surrounding skin. They are likely to become darker and more obvious after sun exposure and reduce in the winter months. Freckles are due to a rise in the amount of dark pigment called melanin.

Types of freckles

There are two types of freckles: simple freckles and sunburn freckles. Simple freckles are usually sun-tanned, round, and small about the size of a common construction nail head. Sunburn freckles are often darker, have uneven rough borders, and are larger. Sunburn freckles are more common on the upper back and shoulders where people often get their most severe sunburns.

Development of freckles

Freckles are thought to develop as a result of a combination of genetic inheritance and sun exposure. Two individuals getting the same sun exposure may not have an equivalent probability of developing freckles. Natural sunlight and artificial sun tanning lights release ultraviolet (UV) rays. After exposure to ultraviolet rays, the outer layer of the skin thickens and the pigment-producing cells produce the pigment melanin at a higher rate.

Preventive Measures Since there is little we can do about the genes, we can focus on the preventive measures to reduce freckles. Let us look at ways we can prevent freckles.

1. It is best that you defend yourself from the harmful rays of sun-protection from a young age. This means right from the tender age as a kid you need to protect yourself from the sun.

2. Opt for sunscreens with an SPF value that suits the environmental conditions around you. The more you expose yourself to the sun rays, higher should be the SPF. Apply sunscreen on all areas that are exposed to the sun, as freckles can appear anywhere.
