So how does this happen?

The exposure of sunlight causes cells in your skin called melanocytes to produce more of a dark pigment called melanin: the result is a freckle. People with lighter skin are more prone to getting freckles.

With restricted sunlight such as in Alaska, those cells stop making as much pigment and thus the dark spots disappear.

The video below shows how the sun sees your skin. After watching, you won't ever hesitate putting on sunscreen!
