Good day doctor, I have been doing swimming regularly for a couple of months now. Sun + chlorinated water has caused my skin complexion to become darker by 3 times. Is the tanning permanent?? What precautions can be taken other than sunscreens to avoid the tanning effect (before and after swimming)?? How can I get rid of the tan completely ??

Outdoor activities make our skin tan. The only option is to wear protective full sleeves clothing, cap or a hat, to carry an umbrella and sunglasses. Skin already tanned can be treated with depigmenting creams. A good skin care regimen comprises 4 steps - cleansing, toning, moisturizing and sunblock. Based on your skin type, a dermatologist will recommend you appropriate products Consider full sleeves clothes while bathing. You can opt for an indoor swimming pool if feasible.
