These appear as dark spots on the skin surface a complete contrast to the color of the rest of the skin. This is very much contrary to the common belief that it is due to the increase in melanocytes (melanin producing cells) in the skin.On exposure to ultraviolet radiation from both natural and tanning lights, the melanocytes increase the production of melanin, and the skin tends to get darker and tanned. This production and deposition happen to provide further protection against the sun rays. Exposure beyond this limit ends with the formation of freckles.

It has been observed that those with lighter skin tones, blonde or red hair and light eye colors are more genetically prone to freckles than the rest.
