It is the first bright rays that provoke hypersecretion of melanin, the skin pigment. As a rule, the sun is most dangerous for fair-haired and red-haired people, because their skin contains very little of the pigment melanin and the cells that produce it. This means that they have a high risk of developing skin cancer, malignant degeneration of moles, exposure to the sun often causes burns. And freckles contain pigment, as if it “absorbs” the sun’s rays and prevents burns.
The appearance of freckles can be genetically determined. So, to cure, that is, to get rid of freckles forever.
– However, it happens that the face is literally sprinkled with freckles – a person can experience this as a cosmetic defect. What to do?
