Hi. Greetings. Sun tanning can occur even with short exposures and this is a protective mechanism of skin which is called immediate pigment darkening. This can become chronic with repeated exposure. Don't worry, use a sunscreen of high SPF around 30 - and reapply every three or four hours if exposed to sunlight for long duration. See a dermatologist near you for any further assistance. Warm regards.
