If you have shaved your beard a lot and your chin is black, now how can you remove the blackness?

In brief: Depends...

...On what is causing the skin darkening.
You may be shaving too aggressively and causing something called postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. There are creams which will lighten darkened skin, but you'll have to change your shaving technique. A dermatologist will be able to tell you exactly what is causing the problem and how to treat it.
