When they’re young, children with freckles are often bullied because of them. Like anything else, kids will latch onto a difference in appearance and ridicule each other. It’s only once they grow up that those freckle-faced kids get the last laugh, as many of them become strikingly beautiful. There are even products now sold to fake the look of freckles, though there is nothing quite like the real thing. They’ve been described as many things, but here are some of the best sayings about them:
- They’re just tiny umbrellas from the sun
- A face without freckles is like the sky without stars
- A teaspoon of brown sugar, dropped upon their nose
Though they’re actually just a cluster of melaninized cells, they have been both revered and detested in different parts of the world. Though found among all races and skin types, they’re most commonly noticed among pale-skinned people.
The unique look they can give someone is absolutely beautiful, and these photos prove it.
Though they often form just on the bridge of the nose and cheeks, they can be just as beautiful all over the body.
Freckles accompany red hair frequently, making a striking pair that is perfect for the camera.
In black and white, they are a stunning facial feature. By playing with the contrast of an image, photographers can pull even more out that aren’t normally noticed.
While seen less among male models, freckles can still be a separator for certain men.
