Freckles are harmless small brown spots typically located on the face and arms. Freckles are genetic and sun induced. More commonly seen in fair-skinned people and with red or lighter colored hair. These skin types should remember to avoid the sun or use at least SPF 50 and reapply every 1.5-2 hours, due to being more likely to develop skin cancer. Regular skin checks are recommended for those who have this skin type. For more information skin cancer and what to watch for click here.
