Welcome to healthcare magic forum

I understand your concern about sun burn.

Your skin is sensitive to sun light. You have to protect your skin from sun light.

You should use sunscreen with 50 SPF regularly. Apply it 20 minutes before sun exposure and re apply every 3 hours. You can use Shadowz 50 sunscreen lotion.

Wearing full sleeve cloths, hand glows or summer coat will protect your skin further.

Procedure like microdermabrasion, skin peeling is helpful in tanned skin. You should consult dermatologist for these procedures.

You can get a prescription for medicated skin-lightening creams from your doctor. Skin lightening creams can be hydoquinone (mellalite forte cream), kojic acid, arbutin (koziglow cream). You should apply the cream on tanned cream at night. You need to use it for 4-6 weeks to see any effects. It is better to use these after consulting a physician.

I hope I answered your question.

Let me know if you have any query.
