Freckles are multiple flat spots that may develop after repeated exposure to sunlight. They are made up of cluster of skin cells that contain the pigment melanin. They vary in colour and density but are always darker than the normal skin around them. Excessive exposure to sun is the main cause behind freckles. Genetics, hormonal imbalance and fair skin also contribute for causing freckles.
