Why You Should Embrace Your Freckles


We are taught to hide our freckles from a young age instead of embracing them.  If you are naturally gifted with freckles, you should not hide them with makeup. However, if you still want them gone, you should read articles such as this freckle removal guide by HealthSumo to learn about the safest ways to eliminate freckles.

Instead of trying to fix something that is not broken, you should love your freckles for the following reasons:

They Are Unique

Nobody has freckles in the exact areas that you have, which makes yours unique to you. Nobody can copy or reproduce your freckles because they are a part of you.

Moreover, your freckle patterns are always changing in the sun, which means that they will not remain the same.

You Don’t Need to Draw Them On

Unbelievably, people are now using makeup to create an illusion of fake freckles. Beauty brands such as Lancôme and Sephora are creating pencils that people can use to draw fake freckles. If you naturally have freckles, you do not have to join this bandwagon; you should just flaunt what you already have.

They Are Adorable

If you have had freckles from a young age, you must have been told how adorable they are by countless people. Now that you are older, the cuteness of your freckles has not faded; it has only multiplied. You cannot have enough cuteness in your life. If you must wear makeup, you should apply a light-coverage foundation that will not cover up your freckles.

They Are Entertaining

Have you ever played a game of connect-the-dots with your freckles? Finding shapes from your freckles can be a fun way to pass the time. Moreover, when you are snuggling with your partner, you can turn this into an intimate game and let your partner trace your freckles with his or her fingers.

You Would Not Look the Same without Them

Can you imagine your face without your lovely freckles? Even when you try to conceal them, you might not recognize yourself when you look in the mirror. In a way, they make you who you are so you need to start embracing them.

They Offer a Natural Tan

Most of the time, freckles are accompanied by fair skin and red hair. This means that your freckles act like your tan when the sun is out. Even if you still need to wear sunscreen to protect your skin, the freckles will make up for the lack of a tan.

They Are Great Fashion Accessories

When applying makeup, a bronzer will blend in better if you have freckles. This is because you already have a variety of colors on your face. Moreover, golds and coppers will also look great with your spots. Whatever season it is, your face will always have a great shining factor.

They Bring out Your Eyes

During the summer, your freckles will come out of their hiding places and make your eyes pop. If you have freckly skin, you will find yourself using less makeup during the summer because of your freckles.

They Add a Healthy Glow

If you did not get enough sleep at night or your day has been exhausting, you will not need to worry about looking extra pale. Freckles give your face a natural glow that makes you look alive and alert. The same cannot be said for people who do not have freckles.


The above reasons should convince you to show off your freckles.
