How to reduce freckles due to sun burn?

I got a few light freckles on my cheeks 7 years ago and they never go away. Anybody know how to reduce them? Thank you loves!

Re: How to reduce freckles due to sun burn?

hey! have you seen a derma about them yet? There's a bit of a difference between freckles and sun spots, although they both have common causes (mainly sun exposure, though genetics plays a role in it as well), and each would need a slightly different regimen to tackle it. If it's freckles, you can't do much other than SPF daily for daytime (at least SPF, but I wouldn't recommend any higher than 60, because that's just a waste of money and is only fractionally more effective than a 60 would be). Also, try a potent vitamin c serum to help with the pigmentation (I like the drunk elephant C Firma, but it's a little heavy for my liking, so i'm still playing around with a few formulas). I work in skincare and have a background in skin, but I'd still say see a licensed derma if you have access to one...nothing beats professional advice!
