Freckles come from the melanin production, controlling pigment and often round in appearance, a spot of darker pigment contrasts to the fairer surrounding skin. Genetics, a major factor in freckles with many people have a disposition from birth. Often covering the entire body and most prevalent in very fair people and often, people with red hair. Sun exposure is another major cause of freckles, people from hot sunny climates, or outdoors people often have more freckles caused from UV damage. These are not the same as ‘simple freckles’ or hereditary freckles, these very light in appearance freckle often fade in winter and more pronounced in winter.
