skin products for freckles

Seeing lots of freckles on my face. Are there creams that can prevent them? Do I have to use them everyday?

It won't reduce the freckles you've already got, but it may help prevent new ones forming.
If you've got freckles, you've probably got quite fair skin that's sensitive to the sun, so sunscreen or other skin brighteners here is a good idea to protect your skin. It will also stop your freckles being so noticeable...

It will also prevent sun spots - little dark marks on your skin due to the sun and aging. You should try a moisturiser with SPF 15 or higher, and use it daily :)

Hi Carrie,

Welcome to EmpowHER. As with any skin conditions, it's best to avoid the sun as much as possible and use a sunscreen SPF 50 or higher. Lighter skinned people tend to freckle easily and have a higher risk of developing skin cancer. Hope this helps?
