Freckles are nothing but the brown colored small spots which appear on human skin. Hardly anyone likes freckles on their faces and hence people constantly look for ways to get rid of this ugly dark spot.

Mostly, freckles are the result of sun exposure, when your skin melanin distribution isn’t happening the way it should. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its color and natural protection. Exposure to the harmful rays of the sun can trigger excess melanin production causing dark spots, acne and discoloration. And the damage caused to the skin by sun’s rays is called photo-damage.
