Thanks for your query

Your problem is that of a dark skin color.

Treatment with lightening agents can help turn some extend.
For long term usage, something like kojic acid containing agents help.
Also you should use a sunscreen regularly before going out in the sun.

You can also see a dermatologist for the same as there are various other techniques like chemical peels available for the same.

Hope it helps

Dermatologist Dr. Johny Chacko's  Response
Welcome to healthcare magic

Most of the people will acquire more pigmentation as age increases, we call it facultative pigmentation. Lot of factors determine it, most important being sunlight, others include dust, pollution, smoking, less hydration, intrinsic ageing and free radical damage, stress etc.

Treatments should be to bring your pigmented skin back to your normal skin tone and make the skin tone even all over the face.

I would recommend you to use a face wash twice a day ideally a one containing glycolic acid as it helps in exfoliation and to even out the skin tone.(eg : Melawash face wash)
The most important product will be a sunscreen. Half an hour before going out apply a sunscreen ( eg: Neutrogena Ultrasheer Dry touch sunblock) and reapply it every three to four hours. You may apply a compact powder over the sunscreen so that there is a matte finish.
At night you may apply a lightening cream containing kojic acid ( eg: Kojivit gel) over the face before going to sleep.
You may consult a dermatologist practicing cosmetology for few sittings of chemical peels for faster improvement.
