Summer brings the full force of heat of the sun onto us. Though it is a wonderful time to go onto a beach and soak up some vital sunrays, but it can also mean that you can also get spotted a bit. What we are talking about here are freckles.
Freckles are spots on skin which have higher melanin content or skin pigmentation when compared with the rest of the surrounding areas. Most of the time, the cheeks and the nose are the two areas which happen to get most freckles. Mostly people with paler skin tend to get more freckles, since they are more noticeable on them.
Here are some interesting facts about freckles which are also known as ‘angel kisses.’
