The “freckle face” look is fresh once again, thanks to the Duchess of Sussex who started this beauty trend. Dubbed the “Meghan Markle Effect”, this has inspired women to embrace their natural beauty and show their sun-kissed freckles.
Whilst moles are easier to distinguish, most people can’t tell the difference between freckles and sunspots. With freckles being a trend, it is easy for people to ignore these hyperpigmented areas. The issue here is that skin cancer in its early stages may look just like these spots.
It is known that two out of three adults develop skin cancer before they turn 70. In addition, skin cancer leads to more than 2,000 deaths a year, making it one of the most fatal forms of cancer for men and women.
