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.

Physical exfoliates (loofah, microbeads) can help, but not as well as a chemical exfoliant. ...Read more

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.
