Freckles/Sun Spots

What are Freckles/Sunspots?

Freckles are small brown spots usually found on the face and arms. Freckles are extremely common and are not a health threat. They are more often seen in the summer, especially among light-skinned people and people with light or red hair. Freckles are natural and not harmful. Even though some people with freckles don't like them and want to get rid of them, they're certainly not a sign of any health problems. 

Freckles are just skin cells that contain a pigment (color) called "melanin" Melanin is a chemical made by skin cells called "Melanocytes" Melanin helps to protect the skin from the Sun's harmful ultraviolet rays by reflecting or absorbing them. Freckles are triggered by exposure to sunlight.

Sunspots are spots on the skin that are darker than your natural skin tone. Essentially, sunspots are skin damage caused by exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. The sunspots usually appear in areas regularly exposed to sunlight like the face, hands, shoulders, and arms. Sunspots (also known as liver spots) are those little dark spots that can often be mistaken for freckles.
Cause of Freckles/Sun Spots

Freckles are thought to develop as a result of a combination of genetic tendency (inheritance) and sun exposure. Two people receiving the same sun exposure may not have an equal chance of developing freckles. Freckles appear when the melanin, the dark pigment in skin, isn't distributed evenly, certain areas of the skin have more than others, and that's why they appear a little darker. 

If you're prone to freckles, you're more likely to have them the more you expose yourself to the sun. If you spend outside without sun protection, you'll probably notice the spots on your skin getting darker and multiplying. This happens when ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun hit your skin. The outermost layer of your skin, the epidermis, thickens a little bit more. This in turn causes melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells in your skin, to produce more melanin, which can darken the freckles on your skin.

Sunspots are spots on the skin that are darker than your natural skin tone. They may be slightly raised and even a little bumpy. Essentially, sunspots are skin damage caused by exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. The sunspots usually appear in areas regularly exposed to sunlight like the face, hands, shoulders, and arms. If you are bald, sunspots can appear on your scalp. Sunspots tend to increase with age as the skin has a harder time repairing the damage of ultraviolet light.
