hi, going by your description it seems that you have tanning rather than sunburn. I suggest you use a 26spf sunblock cream 2-3 times daily on the exposed parts of your body to prevent tanning. you must remember that even the best of sunscreens do not offer 100% sun protection and some amount of tanning is inevitable if the part is not covered with clothing.
