* Freckles *

Every summer I get freckles across my nose and cheeks. I have never minded them, in fact I like them, they make me look healthier and younger.

I know some people though that hate their freckles and cover them with make up.

What do you think?

    Okay, I have ginger hair. Freckles are a way of life. All year round.

    And I don't mind them...

    My girlfriend hates her freckles, but they're really cute!

    I've got 'em, I've never really given it a second thought. They're not going anywhere so hating them isn't going to help.

    I think freckles are cute. Much cuter than makeup gobbed on to cover them up.

    Question: If you put makeup on over them every day, won't you have pale patches on your face?

    Bleurgh, freckles!

    I have them all year round, although my hair isn't red...and in the summer, omg they multiple in their hundreds, thats the only time I really hate them. They're all over my arms too, a few on my back and some have even spread to my legs! hehe.

    I did used to hate them, and try to cover them up with makeup but now I realise theres no point at all, they're there and thats it. Besides my boyfriend said they're cute <IMG SRC="tongue.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> although he may just have been trying to reassure me hehe.

    I used to have freckles every summer all over my face. They've kinda calmed down now but just been replaced by 'blotchy face-itis' basically meaning that my face just spends most of its time bright red.
    Ok, not that bad, but still, bring back the freckles!!!

    Freckles can be really cute on a girl but on myself I hate them, with a passion!!

    When it's not hot/sunny my freckles fade majorly and I feel much better about the way I look!

    But as the summer approaches (ie now! <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">) They've all come out again and then make me feel like I look really ugly close up <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> Girls reckon they're "cute" etc but I know they're lying <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> And i get them on the back of my shoulders, they suck! <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Anyone know how I can make em go away? lol

    When I was young I was bullied at school, because of my freckles. They used to call me Join The Dots Face. Then one evening when i was going Ice Skating with my Gran they jumped on me, and with an imdelable marker they joined up some of my freckles that turned out to be an Elephant on my face. Now people call me Elephant face. I dont know which is worse. <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I have freckles but they are really faint, I like them, I think they add somthing to your face. My mate has the all over her face, arms and legs but they suite her and she would look really weired without them! but i can see why people dont like them.
