Hi tanning of skin from swimming can happen because of uv radiation from the water in the pool and the chlorine absorption can make your skin dry flaky hence more uv induced damaged. Check on the chlorination in the pool if standardized, have a shower and apply sunscreen pre and post swimming that lessens chlorine absorption, timing of swimming also is crucial. Some amount of tanning is always a part of swimming though in spite of the measures taken.
