Preventing freckles

Recommended Posts

I know this isn't directly linked to acne, however, it is a skin issue.

I'm getting more freckles as I get into my cleansing/ moisturizing routine.

Could removing the skins natural layer of moisture make you more sensitive to sunlight?

Anybody?

freckles are caused by an overproduction of melanin which is triggered by sunlight. its really only got to do with how much melanin your skin produces, so kinda genetic. that why you can see people with the nicest tan without any freckles and then people who barely see the sun covered in freckles

It's genetic, not much you can do about it. My brother and sister both used sunblock 100% of the time when we grew up, I never used much/any, and they both have freckles and I have none. Not coincidentally I look like my mom's side of the family and they look like my dad's.
