Hello,
For sun tanning, apply a good sunscreen with minimum spf 30 atleast half an hour before going out in the sun. Without treatment, this usually takes about 2 months to resolve and for the skin color to go back to its normal color.  Topical treatments with acids and chemical peels can be effective but can take a while for the skin to totally revert to its normal color.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
