grain de beauté


Explanation:
I have always found this term (which I hear and see used all the time to describe what we English describe unpleasantly as moles). We ought to start describing them with the same term "beauty spot". Sounds much nicer!

Explanation:
it's the scientific term for "grain de beauté" (in fact the "a" and "e" are a sole character, but I don't remember the keyboard code)
