Yes of course freckles are endearing, but if you feel that you would rather do without, here are some helpful tips on fighting your freckles.
Sun exposure is important. Make sure that when you are out, you have a proper amount of SPF sunblock on your face and neck.
Of course with the sun comes a tan, and your freckles can increase its pigmentation thus appearing darker than normal.
Lemon Juice. Hit your fridge and grab a couple and apply the juice directly (using your fingers) to your face twice a day.
Let it sit for fifteen minutes and then rinse it off. You can also apply the lemon juice during bedtime and rinse it off as part of your morning skin care regime.
Keep in mind, applying lemon juice to your skin will increase its sensitivity to the sun so make sure that you couple this treatment with a higher dose of SPF in your foundation or moisturizer. Keep in mind, depending on your skin’s sensitivity, this may or may not work for you as it may leave your skin irritated and itchy.
