I have a lot of freckles as well. When I tan in a tanning bed, using some of their lotions that help to make a tan darker, I never get more freckles. Plus you really only have to tan for about 2 months to get a tan that will look good and stay for about 3 months. I have only gone tanning for 2 summers. Each time I went for 2 months, got a tan then quit. Never were freckles added, and then when I tanned out side with my tan, I only got tanner, and again no more additional freckles.
