Dear PLS,
Hasn’t anyone come up with a cure for freckles yet? I have them and am sick of everyone saying how cute they are.

Signed,
Stop the Spots!


Dear StS,
We understand your frustration, but there’s no cure for freckles because freckles are not an illness. Freckles are just pigment cells (cells that contain color) within the skin.

They tend to fade in winter, so you may be able to limit your freckle-ness, especially if you use sunscreen, wear a hat, and take other sun safety steps. They might fade as you get older, too, but we’d encourage you to take a new look at your freckles. Many great-looking people have freckles, including one of the members of the PLS!

Think Pink!
The PLS
