In brief: Skin bleaching

Your skin color is determined by your genetic family background, and by how much sun you are exposed to.
Some people have naturally dark skin, while others have lighter skin, and this fact is based alot on what part of the world your ancestors came from. If you want lighter skin, you must not get any sun at all, and you can buy bleaching creams to try to make the skijn lighter.
