What are Freckles?
Freckles are a form of skin pigmentation that is most commonly found on people with fair complexions. They happen due to the skin’s exposure to the sun’s ultra violet radiation that causes melanocytes to make more skin pigments. Thus, these pigmentations show more on fair skin than darker tones. Because people with paler skin color generally have less melanin, which is the pigment that gives skin, hair, and eyes their color, they are prominently visible on their skin tone.
