hmm, I don't think it's the drying effect. I think that it is the exfoliating effect. The thing you're using caused your skin to exfoliate the dead, melanin containing skin cells. The fresh skin underneath has less melanin, since it hasn't been exposed to the sun (yet).

The skin that appears lighter is just new skin.
