Whether you consider them a lucky sprinkling of beauty marks or a frustrating collection of spots, many women boast a face full of freckles. Even girls who are typically freckle-free may may notice a few dotting their complexion after months of summertime-sun exposure.
Dealing with a freckled complexion doesn’t have to be a hassle, however, as long as you use the appropriate beauty products.
“Freckles are abnormal clumped pigmentation on the skin, [and can be] a sign of skin damage, and a precursor to deeper brown spots lingering beneath the surface,” dermatologist Katie Rodan told Allure.com.
The skin expert recommends that freckle-faced ladies use a mild exfoliating cleanser that contains lactic acid, and lighten darkened areas with a 2 percent hydroquinone cream, like NeoStrata Bionic Skin Lightening Cream SPF 15.
Instead of layering on concealer and foundation to cover the small dots, the news source suggests applying a tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone or a sheer foundation if you desire fuller coverage.
To add a touch of color to your complexion and to minimize the appearance of each individual freckle, put down the blush and opt for a shimmery bronzing powder. “The opalescent particles deflect light from imperfections,” makeup artist Mally Roncal told the news provider.
