While moles on the face may sometimes lead to self-consciousness, in many cultures there’s a deep spiritual meaning of moles on your face.

According to WebMD, moles are growths on the skin caused by skin cells that grow in a cluster as opposed to being spread evenly across the skin.

There are many different types of moles, and while most aren’t dangerous, it’s smart to pay attention to your skin and make note of the ABCDEs of moles: asymmetry, border, color, diameter, and evolution.

If you’re concerned about a mole on your face or any part of your body, a dermatologist can help you evaluate the mole.

Some people may opt to get moles on the face removed for cosmetic reasons while others have embraced them and even used them to set them apart, such as Cindy Crawford who has a mole on her upper lip and Marilyn Monroe, whose cheek mole became a signature part of her look.

The spiritual meaning of moles on your face varies based on who it's on and where the mole is located.
