Hi. Greetings. Sun tanning can occur even with short exposures and this is a protective mechanism of skin which is called immediate pigment darkening. Don't worry, use a sunscreen of high SPF at least around 30 - and reapply every three or four hours if exposed to sunlight for long duration. The following precautions would help you : 1. sunscreen should be applied half hour before sun exposure 2. Daily bed time use of moisturiser like cetaphil or emoderm in case of dry skin. Reapply during lunch break during office hours. 3. Use Peeling agents prescribed by dermatologist for reducing tan. Chemical peels and micro derm abrasion is also an option. Peels are safe and cost varies depending on the type of Peel used and centre where u get it done. Usually around 1500 to 3000 per session for face. 4. Evaluation by dermatologist as to rule out any other causes of skin pigmentation. You'll also need retinoid creams for and this will also help reducing tan. 5. Kindly read my blog on daily skin care on Practo health feed. Hope this helps. Further queries/ appointments can be scheduled through private follow up chat. Warm regards. Dr Govind S Mittal, excel care hospital, Bangalore.
