Freckles can be beautiful, and is also trending in the modeling world.

Yep, I"m Australian but my father is from Irish heritage (fair) and my mother Scottish (dark). My sister got the good dark skin and I got the freckles. I have worn sunscreen all my life because from a young age I was always conscious about them but in the long run nothing can be done about them. I have seen many skin specialists.

I'm of French/German heritage. When I was young, I hated my freckles. When I aged, many people thought I was younger than I really was "because" of my freckles. So., in the long run, they aren't so bad.

I do not like freckles – I want to get rid of these freckles. But there is no one who will help me. Everyone asks me how I got my freckles. Today I was visiting a doctor to examine these and she disappointed me – she said there is no treatment for freckles. Once you get freckles, I think they will remain the same your whole life.
