The home remedy here will help you get rid of freckles naturally. But before we get into it, a few things about freckles.
Freckles can be a blessing and a curse at the same time. Ephelides (or freckles) are small yellow-brown pigmented dermatoses that usually appear on the face, hands, arms, neck, and shoulders. In spring, under the influence of sunlight, freckles intensify.
What Causes Freckles to Suddenly Appear?
Freckles usually occur in the areas that are more exposed to the sun, such as the face, arms, neck, back, or chest, and are the result of excess melanin, the pigment that colors the skin and hair. This is why we see an explosion in freckles when springtime arrives. This excessive production of melanin can in turn be caused by unprotected sun exposure and genetic factors.
Genetics also contributes to freckles. The MC1R gene dictates the type of melanin secreted by the skin, which can be eumelanin or pheomelanin. People with dark hair, skin, and eyes usually secrete eumelanin and are therefore less likely to get freckles. In contrast, people with light hair, skin, and eyes (blonde, red, white skin, and blue or green eyes) secrete more pheomelanin and are more prone to freckles. Another factor that can contribute to the appearance of freckles is hormonal treatments, as is the case with oral contraceptives.
Can You Get Rid of Freckles?
There is no general treatment for freckles that works for everybody. Under medical supervision, one can take vitamin P.P. This vitamin had a photo-protective effect, which means it protects the sun against the effects of the sun and prevents freckles.
The first thing that you can do to get rid of freckles is to avoid or reduce sun exposure. For this, use a natural sunscreen that has propolis extract as the main component. Or more simply, apply castor oil on the freckled skin before exposing it to the sun. Now let’s see the home remedy for freckles that actually works.

Embrace Your Skin, Freckles and All
When it comes to freckles, it’s a matter of personal taste. Some love it, some consider it a skin flaw. Which one are you? This is my take on freckles.
Freckles are not something bad and having freckles doesn’t make you less beautiful, but instead more special. When you release the thoughts of unacceptance related to the freckles on your face, you are then ready to let them go. What you resist, persists. Embrace your unique beautiful skin and love yourself madly and deeply. Once you do this, freckles may not even be a “problem to fix” anymore.
Instead, all of our flaws transform into divine gifts. They are all here to help you grow, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Choose not to fight your own nature, but embrace it.
