Face And Chest Two Different Colors

Q: My face is much darker than my chest area. What can I do to even my skin color?

I've heard that the color of your chest is your natural skin color, is this true?

A: Your face and your chest are both your "natural" skin colors. The fact is that when you go into the sun you get darker. The skin on your body is usually covered with clothes so it doesn't get dark.

You can do one of two things to get the even tone you want.

1. Keep your face out of the sun so the skin will get lighter.
2. Tan the rest of your body to match the skin on your face.

Which one you chose depends on your lifestyle (if you work outside number one isn't going to be easy) and the shade of skin you feel more comfortable with.
