Thanks for posting your query.
I would like to inform you that it may not be possible to regain the skin colour that you were born with. Change in skin colour that occurs early in life is not reversible.
Nevertheless, I would suggest that you to use a broad spectrum sunscreen 2-3 times daily to prevent further tanning.
Additionally, you may also consider getting mild chemical peels like glycolic acid peel. It gives a glow and freshness to your skin. I would suggest that your consult a dermatologist in person regarding this.
Further, have a healthy and balanced diet and include fruits in your diet. Take plenty of oral fluids to flush out the toxins.
I hope I have answered your query. I will be available for follow up queries.
