Hello. This is My first real person painting. It is not finished. My questions are. 1. The chin area is to dark...how can I lighten it?
2. Compared to my other post with paintings, in your opinon, am I improving?

I believe there's been improvement but its difficult to quantify as your paintings are all totally different subjects. I do like this one alot however

You could do a very pale glaze of a lighter color over the dark, let that dry to see if it is light enough. If it is the value you want then you can do a pale glaze of the skin color. You might practice then on a piece of scrap paper first to see how it works for you.
