When I was younger (about 14) I had quite a fair skin complexion but now it has gotten darker. Could this be because of the sun or could it be genetics. Also is there anyway I can get my old skin complexion back again?
My skin has gotten darker?

It's the sun - and permanent sun damage...
But also the genetics of you being able to maintain melanin levels - do your parents also tan easily and keep it long?
If so then there ya have it.
No real solutions I can see of you getting your old skin color back. Unless you want to bleach your skin - which sounds disturbing to me. o. O0

It usually happens due to sun exposure, and also a lot of pollutants in the air. You can get your skin de-tanned professionally at a parlour, maybe once a month or so.2
