Question: Skin Pigmentation

 mr.inquisitive - Wed Sep 14, 2005 11:44 pm


I am a 16 year old African-American male. For quite some time, I have been a nice "chocolate" color. Fairly recently however, I seem to have gotten darker. I am proud of my skin no matter the color, but I would prefer it to be back about 4 or 5 shades lighter. Is there anyway that I can cause this change to happen with minimal damge to my skin?

Thanks and God Bless
