The appearance of freckles has its roots in the genes. Some people inherit the genes of freckle- prone skin from their familial line.

Freckles should be considered as a red alert that your skin is pre disposed to skin cancer and thus, should be handled carefully. One very important thing is to avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
