The spots develop randomly on the skin but particularly on the face after repeated exposure to sunlight.

Most people like their freckles but some don't so what can be done to disguise them?

Well, you can use foundation and powder to fade the freckles but this doesn't always have the desired effect.

A better solution is to use the specially designed freckle fading cream which can be found in any high street chemists.

And remember prevention is more sensible than cure. So slap on a high factor sunscreen whenever you're out in the sun to prevent a freckle outbreak.
