Hi everyone, Liz here (+1 662 830 8246, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Have you ever stopped to think about freckles? Why do we have freckles? Where do they come from? Why are they more common in summer? Are they painful and dangerous to our health? No one is born with freckles, but when they appear, usually during childhood, many questions arise.
What are freckles?
Freckles are small or larger patches on the skin that are darker in color. The spots are multiple and may develop on sun-exposed skin over time. Freckles are particularly common in people with red hair and a fair complexion and may appear on children as young as 1 or 2 years of age. They are smooth and are divided into several colors such as light or dark brown, reddish or yellow-brown. Freckles occur as a result of a cellular change in the skin, which causes the production of more melanin and pigment. They are not painful to the touch and can increase when the skin is exposed to sunlight without being protected.
There are two basic types of freckles - Ephelides and Lentigines. Ephelides are flat light-brown spots that typically appear during the sunny months and fade in the winter. Ephelides are small tan, brown, or black spots which tend to be darker than an ephelis-type freckle and which do not fade in the winter.
Who has Freckles?
Not everyone develops such pigmentation spots! However, scientists have defined some criteria for the appearance of freckles, and most people who have them fall into these categories:
Heredity - if a member of your family has freckles on their face or hands, then the chances of you developing them are quite high. Relatives often share the same skin type, which means that over the years, they often suffer from the same skin problems. as witnessed by the striking similarity in the total number of freckles on identical twins. Such similarities are considerably less marked in fraternal twins. A gene for freckles has been mapped to chromosome 4Q32-Q34.
Hair and skin - People with red hair and pale skin are more prone to freckles. However, people with dark hair can also develop them. In general, people with fair skin and light eyes are more prone to freckles.
Sun exposure - it causes the appearance of freckles, as well as their spread or darkening. Freckles are a sign that the skin has been exposed to dangerous ultraviolet rays and the body is struggling to repair the skin. It is a form of natural protection against UV exposure as skin darkens as it tries to protect itself.
Freckles are harmless. They may sometimes be confused with more serious skin problems. Conversely, more serious problems such as skin cancer may at times be passed over as a mere freckle. Anyone who has one or more pigmented spots of which they are not certain should be seen by a dermatologist at the earliest possible moment. There are different treatments available such as laser treatment, cryotherapy, and chemical peeling to lighten or eliminate those freckles whose appearance bothers their owners. After ensuring the freckles are indeed freckles, you can then look to natural treatments by introducing certain active ingredients into your skincare regime.
