Hi.
First thing to do is to apply a good medicated sunscreen on all your exposed areas.
we have treatments like chemical body peels which will help remove your tan but it required session and time of around 5 months.
isotretinoin can also lead to little photosensitivity so sunscreen becomes very imp.
kindly visit tender skin for further analysis and consultation.
Regards,
Dr Vivika
