Are there any home-treatments/creams etc for lightening freckles? Or any other advice?

I'm a 19 year old guy. Ever since I was 5 or so, my face gradually started to get covered with freckles adding up till today. I know some may disagree, but I have to state that they are not cute in any way. They aren't just some spots over my nose and cheeks like... show more I'm a 19 year old guy.

They aren't just some spots over my nose and cheeks like these:

but rather my entire face is covered(forehead to chin and ear to ear) leaving no spot empty skin (not even the edges of my lips). Something like this:

But even worse they aren't uniform like the above pic rather some are bigger, some smaller, some are darker than others and some seem like they've merged together.

My body's skin is rather pale and the contrast my darker face creates with my neck, arms etc is ugly. To put it lightly it would be like having a tan only on your face. I don't have light colored hair or eyes, but rather black hair and brown eye, which I believe makes them even worse.

It doesn't help that my facial hair grows over some of the spots and makes my face seem even more unclean.
