Moles or freckles ONLY GET bumpier & darker & larger as you get older.
You can get them removed, but have a doctor check them first, if they're cancerous or not. Some melanoma (moles) are and you could die from it. Dh's 2 uncles (both sides of their family) have had moles removed that was and it killed them.
Some mole can turn skin color and become skin tags. Not brown or black, and I've seen a mole that was blue, in her 20's that turned skin color skin tag in her 40's.
Sunscreen will not protect you from getting burned.
Sunscreen does not protect you from getting moles or freckles, they will only get darker & bumpier or larger from each exposure from the sun.
Sunscreen will not protect you from skin cancer.
Sunscreen will not protect you if you have allergies, I never thought I had allergies!
Sunscreens also discolor your skin - for ever!
But I had Discoid Lupus caused from the sun. Google it. Took 12 years for mine to almost 'fade'. I don't want any more lupus appearing on my skin, so now I'm more & more into protecting myself. Bullous Pemphegoid is another skin disorder. Google that, too!

I'm the kind of person who has families with moles as large as raisin-size. I don't want moles on my body, so I always have been concern about that. But, how I got lupus? I don't know! I got it period.
The sun is more powerful than most people think.
Morgan Freeman, does he look pretty with his freckles? He's older now, and those on his face, are no longer freckles. In the beginning of the Titanic, you'll see the introduction of Rose DeWitt Bukater, played by Kate Winslet. Her face had a lot of freckles, covered with foundation, but you can see right through them.
Laser will zap freckles right out. Cost $750 per session for each large freckle or mole. Risk: blistering or sunburn, which can be prevented with the use of sunblock and Aquaphor.
Example from one who had laser surgery to remove freckles:
I had laser surgery to remove my freckles yesterday . . .?
she said it will be sore the first day and boy was it and she said i may have some swelling, well i woke up this morning and the skin under my eyes is swollen so bad that my eyes are almost closed. i took a goodies headache medicine because it says it contains an anti-inflammatory drug, i also have an ice pack on my eyes. What else should i do? Should what i'm already doing help?
Do you know how many freckles, moles or age spots do you have?
The next best solution is to avoid the sun. Those freckles, moles or age spots will only get larger and darker. One example from YA about tanning: "i used to go tanning A LOT, but then started to get more freckles so i stopped haha. "
