Until a few years ago, freckles had a bad rap in the beauty spectrum for obstructing the natural look of a person. Back then, people would take up varied measures, including hiding them under a layer of make-up or getting them surgically removed. But that is now changing. As the beauty industry turns more inclusive, freckles are no longer a point of embarrassment.

The tiny brownish spots are a combination of sunlight and genetics. Human skin consists of Melanocytes that, when in contact with sunlight, form freckles, the small dense brown clusters dotting the face and the body. While freckles aren't typically harmful, some may find the the changing shapes and disproportionate distribution irritable. Turns out, freckles aren't all that bad if someone knows the ways to pull them off with confidence.

National Love Your Freckles Day, which is observed on Nov. 22, seeks to break the stigma around freckles and encourage people to appreciate their beauty.

Here are a few quotes about freckles that prove they are anything but undesirable flaws. (Courtesy: Brainyquote.com)
