If you are looking at going fairer than your original complexion; you need expert guidance.
A diet full in Antioxidants like Vit C and Sunprotection will help you fight tanning and regain your original colour back.
Lots of water and physical protection like full sleeves; hats etc. also play a good role in Sunprotection in addition to regular Sunscreen application.
For removing the tan and skin lightening you can opt for a programme of chemical peels under the guidance of your dermatologist.
Also avialable are intravenous lightening agents which you can discuss with your dermatologist
