Skin tone is getting dark

My skin tone is getting darker after coming to chennai.I am also getting wound type pimple all over body due to heat probably. I am going to office at 8:45 by walk and skin is exposed to sun for 10 minutes only. I used to apply VLCC sun block spf 30PA+++. I also cover my face with scarf. My covered body parts like legs, stomach, back are also getting darker. So the reason cannot be sun only as per my thinking. Please give a solution to lighten my skin tone.
