I have a 2 year old Ixus V2 (2MP) and the casing looks quite shiny to me. I would recommend keeping the camera in a case when it is not in use. You could also wipe the camera with a damp cloth. Be careful not to let any fluids enter the camera.
A metal polishing solution called Brasso, available at supermarkets, could be used as a last resort.

Is your camera kept in a drybox? Pollutants in the air, eg oil from cooking? salt in sea breeze? emissions from vehicles, factories? might contribute to the metal tarnishing.
