Sunburns resolve: Usually sunburns resolve on their own. So, you don't really have to do anything. However there may be some skin peeling going on, so use a good moisturizer. If your skin color continues being completely different than your face and neck, then you may want to see your doctor, who can examine your skin. Stay out of the sun, until your skin returns to normal. So you don't keep sunburning, over tanning your neck and face.
