Skin getting dark on nose, spreading across nose, eating spicy food. Cause and treatment?

i have noticed darkening of my skin especially on the nose , spreading in the form of thin line across my face . Before, i used to be in a temperate country and i didn t have any darkening until i came to a tropical country for my studies and started eating spicy food that we get in south India. I am wondering whether it could be either because of the scorching heat or the spicy food.what is the actual cause and what can i do to overcome it?
