Our favorite freckle faces

Freckles might be a dermatologist's bane, but they are a romantic's delight and are seen as a sign of beauty. Freckles are a sign of individuality, the perky dot on an exclamation point, a quirky, covetable beauty asset and more and more people are starting to appreciate them.

People with light skin and eyes have less melanin, a chemical in the skin that protects it from sun damage by reflecting and absorbing ultraviolet (UV) rays, but some melanocytes (the melanin-producing cells) make more melanin when exposed to the sun. Instead of tanning evenly, people with less melanin get freckles.

The more melanin you have in your skin, the easier it is to get a tan. People with fair complexions have less melanin in their skin to start with. When sunlight causes their melanocytes to make more melanin, they often develop freckles instead of getting an even suntan like people with darker complexions.

Here are some of our favourite ZAlebs who embrace their beautiful skin.
