If you are looking to make your skin glow or look healthier and brighter, a turmeric face pack would be a much better option to use than the commercial fairness creams.

You can use it on your neck too if you like. Before it dries, you can use slow, circular motions to massage the turmeric mixture on the face. This would help in the exfoliation process.
