Can I get rid of my freckles?

 
 

Freckles—I hate them! Mine are dark and stand out on my light skin. Help!

 

Light skin equals frequent freckling. Fair folks have less melanin, which protects skin from ultraviolet sun rays. While the spots are cute, they can be signs of sun damage. So make sure you keep your fabulous freckles healthy. Use sunscreen—15 SPF, at least—at all times, and avoid tanning beds.

 

You only need to worry about freckles if one gets bumpy or turns into an asymmetrical, weird shape. If that happens, don’t get freaked, but definitely have your doc check it out just to be on the safe side, says Dr. Ariel Ostad, dermatologist and assistant professor, New York University Medical School. For now, embrace your fantastic freckle face.
