Sun tan can be reversed.You should avoid direct exposure of sunlight on face by using umbrella or cap.The other option is to use Sun block lotion on parts which are exposed to Direct sunlight.Ypu should use sunblock lotion with minimum spf of 30.It will work for 2-3 hrs.If you are working for more than 2 hrs in sun than you should reapply the lotion.Also use good moisturiser at night which should contain Aloe Vera and or calendula.This will help you reverse the tan effect over a period of time.Hope you get well soon.Thanks
