Freckle, small area of skin pigmentation, usually occurring on the face, arms, and hands. Freckles are most frequently found in fair-skinned blonds and redheads because the pigment cells in their skin respond only slightly and irregularly to sunlight. The tendency to form freckles is often inherited.
