What are freckles?  
Freckles are flat tan, brown or black spots that appear over time on
surface of the skin that have been exposed to the sun, particularly
the cheeks and nose. Freckles are common among fair-skinned
individuals who sunburn easily.

They're more common in the summer months and tend to fade in
the winter.

If you have freckles, your skin tends to be more prone to sunburn,
so it is far better to look after your skin and always cover it up. It will
not only help your freckles from becoming darker, it will protect your
skin from the sun. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
Every day, you need to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF
30 or higher to protect your face from the harmful rays of the sun
whenever you go out and reapply sunscreen frequently throughout
the day.

Check the medications you are taking. Some medications can
cause skin sensitivity.

Personally, I love freckles, and they come in and out of fashion like
everything else, so go with the flow, and make the most of your
natural assets!

If your freckles are light, don't even try to cover them up. Show them
off by using a sheer foundation. You can also try lightly rubbing in a
little concealer that is closest to your natural skin tone. If you
happen to have the darker ones that you just can't live with, choose
a cream foundation to cover and even out skin tones.  

If you have freckles that become darker and larger during the
summertime, it could be a sign of skin damage. You should be
more careful about applying sunscreen next time you're in the sun.  
Modern treatments for lightening freckles include freezing them
with liquid nitrogen, and the use of strong acid peels or ablative
laser treatments. Freezing, chemical peels and ablative laser
treatments, while more effective than conventional treatments, can
damage healthy skin, cause scarring and require lengthy recovery

You can use a skin lightening cream such as hydroquinone 2%,
available over the counter. Or a doctor can prescribe stronger
versions of this plus tretinoin, another lightener. Beyond that there
are chemical peels and laser treatments. The trick is to keep up
the skin lightening regimen and use broad-spectrum sunscreens
year-round to minimize new freckling. A dermatologist should be
able to help.

If you have freckles or sun damage ask for Tri-Luma which has a
bleaching agent and retin-A.  
There are also natural remedies to fade or get rid of freckles.
Vitamins A and C should boost your immunity to the sun's rays and
might reduce the darker pigment over time. In great grandma's
time they used this recipes to try and fade freckles out.

It is very helpful to use sour milk products, lemon, grapefruit,

Simple recipe:
One tablespoon of parsley and one cup of boiling water. Wipe the
skin with this solution or freeze it and wipe the skin with the ice
cube daily.  
Or you can try this one:
Get the juice of half a lemon. Wipe the juice onto your freckles,
using a cotton wool ball.
Do this twice a day for several weeks.
Be careful, because lemon juice can made your skin to be more
sensitive to the sun.
Aromatherapy may come to your rescue. Lemon essential oil is an
acclaimed lightener. You can use sparingly so as not to cause skin
irritation, but you can apply this oil neat using a cotton tip.
