Freckles have been around for as long as we have and, just like most humans, they’re pretty great. Have you ever seen a freckled face that didn’t make you smile with its cuteness? We think not.
So if you’re struggling to embrace your own freckles or not convinced that they’re a fabulous facial feature, here are ALL the reasons why freckles are the best, complete with famous, freckly ladies to illustrate our point. You know we’re right, girl.
They make us unique
Have you ever seen two faces freckled the same way? Much like snowflakes, a freckly face is a unique face.
They appear in the best places
On your nose, cheeks, shoulders… freckles are like nature’s highlighter.
They add character
You always remember people’s freckles, don’t you? It’s like they’re an extension of their personality.
They’re super cute
No matter how old you are, freckles are never not cute, and that’s no bad thing.
They’re a sign of summer holidays well spent
Sure, sun care is super important and you should always wear SPF, but even if you slap it on you can still find yourself with a sprinkling of new freckles after a sunny day. And we can all agree sunny days are the best days, right?
They can completely change your face
Usually cover yours up with make up? Let them shine through instead and see how many compliments you get on your ‘new’ look.
They’re in fashion
They could be your hottest new accessory, no money spent. Model Adwoa Aboah covers the December issue of British Vogue with her freckles on show proving they are on fire right now.
Where do I even begin. Speechless, overwhelmed and grateful. Never in a million years did I think that one day I'd be on the cover of @britishvogue even more so one that marks such a monumental change and a new beginning. Thank you @edward_enninful I'm so very proud of you, you deserve this. Thank you for choosing me to be you're first cover girl. Thank you to #stevenmiesel for the most magical shoot I've ever been on. Mother @patmcgrathreal and @guidopalau for the constant support over the two day shoot and for making me feel like one in a million. To everyone who made this possible, thank you. #newvogue
