My face is darker than my body, how can I regain its original color, its was much fairer before?

Stay out of sun: Typically, our skin darkens temporarily in response to sun exposure. If you spend a lot of time outdoors with shirt & pants on, it's possible for face to get darker than rest of body. The solution is to get out of the sun or to apply sun block to face. However, if non-sun exposed areas are also getting darker, we worry about addison's disease (but not other causes of adrenal insufficiency). ...Read more

Sunscreen: Use a sunscreen on your face. Beyond this, I hope you will not try to lighten your skin. These agents are likely to disfigure you in the long run. In the usa, judging a person by the skin color is considered the height of ignorance in all circles, and it's my hope that this will soon be universal in all nations. ...Read more

Time and Sunscreen: Three types of people: those who want to get more tanned, those who want to be less tanned, and those who are just right. If a person wants to be less tanned, he can stay out of the sun, and/or use sunscreen (and take some vitamin D because he won't be making much without sunshine). There are many good sunscreens including hypoallergenic ones containing titanium+zinc instead of chemical sunblock. ...Read more

How to whiten my skin? My face is too fair. But body skin is bit dark. What do I do? To make it fair

Medical Questions: Unfortunately having less 'fair' skin is not a disease, condition or of any concern to the physician. The goal in life is to learn to love ourselves well enough so that we can serve and help others. The wanting something different about your body is the real problem here. If you cannot learn to do this then perhaps some psychotherapy is warranted. ...Read more

More sun exposure..: ..is usually the explanation for one's face being darker. Sun exposure increases the secretion of the skin pigment melanin. Dirt, pollution may also contribute.

My face color is much darker than my body's color. Sunscreen will protect further damage. But how can I get my own color back?

Multiple options: IPL does a really nice job of lightening sun damage with no down time. It does require regular (every 3 months or so) treatments to maintain results. Some chemical peels can lighten sun damage. Fractionated laser does a really nice job of lightening pigmentary issues, but does require some downtime and may not work if your skin is dark. Hydroquinone and lightening creams are other options. ...Read more

Don't try it: If you try to lighten your face, you'll disfigure yourself.

In the us, which sets the trend for the world, caring about anybody's natural skin color is considered the height of ignorance. If you're ready for marriage, be a man ; stop worrying. ...Read more

Normal response: This is normal, as the sun exposure stimulates pigment protection to protect itself against that damaging effects of the sun. If you'd like to diminish this response, you need to minimize sun exposure to those specific areas. This means utilizing sun screens best in the range of SPF 50, and longer sunprotecting clothing, like hats. Eventually the pigment will fade. ...Read more
