What are freckles? Clinically speaking, a freckle is an unusually heavy deposit of melanin at one spot in the skin. 'Freckling' is an uneven distribution of melanin pigment across the skin surface. These wee brown spots develop as a result of a combination of genetics and sun exposure. For some, they're born with 'em. For others, freckles appear over time in response to sun sensitivity. Pesky or cute? Well, with our sun-smart face on, we're gonna go with cute. In fact, lots of stars are peppered with these sweet spots, and we've got photos to prove that freckles have a certain kind of natural appeal. What do you think?
