      Nad it happens during pregnancy. Maybe same is the case with you.

          i have the same problem...dont know what to do about it really. i try to match the foundation to my neck instead but my neck is more beigy/orange and my face is like...yellow. so that looks like a mess. the best solution i have found is to take my foundation down to the neck for now

              Apply make up to your neck. Problem solved.

                Same here. My face is about 1-2 shades lighter than my neck. When I buy foundation, I have them match it to my neck/upper chest area.

                For the record, I'm not pregnant.

                      Do research on hydroquinone. It is proven to lighten skin...but has it's risks. Kojic Acid is another ingredient you can look into.

                        Reet before you even start looking at questionable ways to lighten the skin around the neck ( I wouldn't recommend anything stronger than lemon juice personally) you need to consider the fact you might be insulin resistant i.e. pre-diabetic, if you're overweight, have a family history of diabetes or basically South Asian, maybe go for a trip to the Drs to get that checked out first...

                          Taken from Alison Young's beauty bible http://blogs.qvcuk.com/alison_young_...-the-neck.html

                          Q: I'm a fair skin-toned Asian girl, aged 25. My neck seems to be much darker than my face and when I put foundation on my neck to match my face, it just doesnt go! I always cleanse and exfoliate my neck too. I'm getting married soon. What products are best used to lighten this area?

                          Alison: This can be a common problem and is often caused by dryness and a lack of oil glands on the neck area. The skin does appear darker, therefore, on facial areas. So, you need to follow an intense exfoliation and moisturising system that almost belies your age.
                          To step up your routine in this area, I'd recommend using Alpha-H Liquid Gold, which should help to exfoliate this area as well as lightening any dark patches. It's crucial that you use this with a rich moisturis, so follow morning and night with Alpha-H Rejuvenating Cream. However, I wouldn't necessarily apply this to the face - I'd keep this routine just for the neck area.

                          Also in the morning after applying Liquid Gold, I'd recommend wearing a high SPF, such as Ultrasun SPF 30, which is a once-a-day application.

                            Stupid question, but doesn't, like, the chin and jaws cast shadows on the neck area making it appear darker? I mean, is it possible that it's really not that uneven, and it just appears so to us?
