What can you recommend for those who have some uneven skin tones on their body, for example, elbows, neck, etc.?

Try using a body wash formulated with alphaydroxy acids like glycolic or lactic acid, which speed cellular turnover and help even out skin tone. Retinols also help but only use these products (and alpha-hydroxies) at night since they can increase sensitivity to the sun

I am an African woman with dark skin. My face is even darker than any other part of my body. Can anyone suggest some homemade products that will help even out my facial skin tone without bleaching. My skin is also very oily.
The one thing that comes to mind is good old fashioned fresh squeezed lemon juice after face cleansing. The lemon juice will also help with the oiliness.
You mention that your face is darker than the rest of your body so you might consider wearing a hat in the sun or non-oily SPF lotions. I hope this helps. (12/18/2008)
