Freckled women and men are major trendsetters right now. So if you're lucky enough to have them naturally, you're probably feeling pretty smug. But your freckles don't just exist to make you stand out. There's actually a pretty interesting reason behind why some of us have them.
According to them, freckles are produced by cells called melanocytes, which form small areas of skin that have an increase in melanin. Don't be worried: melanin is just the protein which produces the color of your skin, eyes and hair, so when more develops, you're left with freckles.
