Types of FrecklesFreckles are tiny skin areas that are darker than the surrounding skin. They are most likely to be present on the face, shoulders, arms, and other areas. They are more prevalent on people with lighter skin and with red or light blonde hair. However, they are common in people with other skin tones as well. This includes those with dark complexion. Freckles are likely to appear in places where the skin is exposed to sun. They are particularly prevalent among people of Celtic origin. However, freckles are not an indication of unhealth. They are merely formed because color causing melatonin in the skin is not distributed uniformly. Freckles can range from red, orange, yellow, brown, and black. They are of two broad categories:
- Ephelides freckles are lighter colored spots that are flat and appear in the summer months. These spots tend to fade away during the winter.
- Lentigines are darker in color and are present whether there is any sun exposure or not. These develop after sun damage or sunburn.
