  • you can't get rid of freckles. They, like moles, can develop throughout his life and there's no stopping it. Sunscreen may prevent them from becoming cancerous but that's about it. Embrace them!

  • What's wrong with freckles? Just use SPF 30 but if they still come don't worry too much. Time in the sun equals freckles no matter what. I have them :)

  • Everyday use of sunscreen does cause freckles to fade and prevents new formation. I am a red head with freckles galore at one time. My dermatologist told me this and it worked. It takes a long while for them to fade but they will. Mine are haerdly noticable now.
