My chest is very white with reddish clumps. My neck is bronze or olive. My face is a mix of these two (white to olive).

Mostly between summer and winter. In the summer I get really dark, and in the winter, olive-shaded.

You want to try a sunblock. Sunscreen isn't enough. I wear a lot of very loose fabrics (long sleeved) if I am going to be out in the midday sun. I like my pale skin and keep it that way.

I use to wear only ankle high socks and tennis shoes for the first 21 years of my life so I have a pair of white feet and tanned legs. My chest also happens to be extremely pale compared to the rest of by body. However, places like my stomach is quite tanned for reasons I do not know as it never sees the sun. I suspect it might have to due with my high vegetable and fruit intake (beta carotene and lycopene).

This should shows my farmers tan. See the sharp variation in skin tone. It just looks embarrassing . I want to get rid of it and restore my lighter skin tone. Any advice on what kind of sunblock would be effective.

What you should do is stop obsessing about skin tone is very unbecoming. I realize it's a cultural thing to prefer lighter complexions with some in your culture and mine and many others but really enough already.

Its not obsession, but rather fear that tanned skin will wrinkle rapidly. I do not want to end up seeing unhealthy wrinkled skin in my 20's, which is why I seek to preserve my natural skin tone.

I'm in my 50's haven't wrinkeled yet from the fluctuating skin tones due to the sun. I encounter many people of your culture and they don't seem to have an issue, my neighbors are indian, the store owners up the street are Indian, Asian, all lovely brown or yellow skin people of various ages without wrinkling skin from this how Florida sun.
