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.

Instead of tanning evenly, people with less melanin get freckles.
