Freckles are beautiful but don't take our word for it. See for yourself in this list of portrait photography shots compiled by Bored Panda.
Freckles are often found on people with fair complexions, such as people with red hair. Why? Because people with paler skin color generally have less melanin, which is the pigment that gives skin, hair, and eyes their color. So, where do these cute freckles come from? Well, although freckles are inherited, it's actually the sun that brings them out. See, the sun's ultraviolet radiation causes melanocytes to make more skin pigments, and this, in turn, creates freckles on face, arms, and shoulders while making existing freckles darker. This is why freckles appear darker in the summer and lighter in the winter! Check out the different types of freckles below, and don't forget to vote for the most beautiful photos!
