You could go for chemical peel along with strict photo protection. Photo protection means avoiding sunlight completely. Use a sunscreen every 2 hours from 8am to 4pm. You could get a glycolic peel done if you are able to tolerate 6% glycolic acid creams. These products should be prescribed by a dermatologist. Please visit one near you and enquire regarding peels. Anything done hastily will cause burns (very strong depigmenting creams) or will have creams containing steroids. So don't rush into quick solutions for clearing your tan. Also remember, your ability to tan protects you from harmful cancer causing radition and is a protective mechanism of your body. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
