The question is why is your chin darker than the rest of you face and body? Do you have a birthmark? Is there and ongoing inflammatory condition such as acne, eczema or ingrown hairs? The treatment would depend on the cause. If you have a birthmark you may need a laser procedure? If inflammation is the cause then you must treat the problem and perhaps use a bleaching or brightening cream.

Dark spot correction can be attained with use of the Melarase creams, Melapads, and once monthly Melapeels.  The creams may work well for dark skin types, including Indian or Pakistani.
