SPF will help minimise damage & discolouration to the skin, but it won't actually stop you tanning.

IMO
only, I think there is link between people with greasy/oily faces & dry skin on the body. I think these are the people who have more extreme dark face / light body issues. *POOF*

i've got a similar but opposite problem. My face and upper waist are a few shades lighter than the rest of me. This is funny to me since i never wear any swim suits or revealing clothing to even allow the sun to come into contact with those parts of my body.Confused Im scared to even wear a bikini b/c i'd probably look like a freak on the beachCry

With me, it is the complete opposite. My face is about 1 to 2 shades lighter than my body (not complete body)

I think it's all to do with the sun,i the winter i go a shade lighter and in the summer a shade darker, my foundation has spf 15 but i guess it does not do anything for me. I will try to wear sun block next summer and see if that makes a different, i must say though for me it's not an issue i like a bit of tan in the summer,i'm too pale in the winter.

Exfoliate your face to get rid of the dead surface skin, I use a home made scrub with acv, sugar, green tea and honey, and maybe add some lemon cause i hear that helps fade hyperpigmentation. Also wear spf every day, I use Clinique City Block in SPF 25, they have a SPF 45 too!

Hi.
 
I've had this problem before. It was because I was using so many products to clear up my acne that contained acids, which "burned" my face. obv not severely and now my skin is clear but these acids do not interact with the sun.
 
To reduce the darkening and to now show off my "radiant/clear" skin, I used a lightening SOAP. (kojic acid is my fav) I would leave the soap on for about a minute each day (sometimes longer if I could).
 
I would exfoliate every other day. And I would use my clairsonic brush religiously. <3
 
and now it matches. <3 if you aren't too scared use a lightening cream with hydronique. i used to use the $2 ones from the dollar store. they DO work; however, you will have to combat oilyer skin. =]
 
good luck.
