Exfoliate: The best way to improve your skin tone over your whole body would be to use an exfoliating cream. My personal favorite is a cream containing Glycolic acid, but lactic acid works as well.

If one is much darker than other family members, then a primary care doctor can evaluate for a hormonal problem. ...Read more
Fungal infection: Likely you have a fungal infection called tinea versicolor, which is very common and harmless. The fungus produces a substance which prevents the skin cells from tanning when exposed to sun. I assume this rash pattern appears in summer time and fade in winter? If so, this is what you have. Vitiligo can also do that, but it is very obvious. I suggest seeing doc for eval and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

What are some great creams/lotion for the whole body to even skin tone on Black women that aren't harmful?
Hypoallergenic crea: It depends on if the dark tone was caused by the adverse effects of a skin condition. In general, everybody's skin chemistry is different, so a cream may work well for one person but not the other.
