What are freckles, and how do I take care of them?
Some people are genetically predisposed to have more freckles than others because they have more active melatonin cells in the skin. Freckles appear from around the age of 2 and then gradually darken and multiply as we age, and as we spend more time in the sun.
The first key to caring for freckled skin is making sure that they do not multiply, as this can significantly increase the risk of skin cancer and sunburn.
Keeping your skin cool
Keeping your skin cool is very important, more so when one has freckles, as heat and sun trigger melanin activity and awaken pigment cells.
Aloe is a great way to cool skin and many sun block brands use it for its anti-inflammatory properties and volume of antioxidants, enzymes, and Vitamins A and C. It can also help treat burns, acne and dry skin. When your skin is feeling hot, regularly spritz with cool water from a fine mist spray bottle and wear a sun hat to protect your face from direct rays.
Load up on antioxidants
The must-have skincare ingredient to invest in for summer is vitamin C. A well-formulated vitamin C product can help suppress melanin cells to keep the skin healthy and freckles in check; apply twice a day in the warmer months.
Manage sensitive and/or pigmented skin by exfoliating regularly with natural products, because dead surface cells store a large amount of the excess pigment found in freckles.
