Brief Answer: XXXXXXX is a common amongst players

Detailed Answer:

The XXXXXXX that is acquired by playing outdoors is reversible. This is the skin's response to the sunlight. This is a protective mechanism intelligently adopted by our skin (South Asians) to prevent exposure to harmful radiations in the sunlight.

Now to look bright as better you should apply SUNCROSS SPF 30, before you go out to play outdoors. Also a hat (not cap) like old cricketers, long sleeves should be worn. That prevents XXXXXXX

Hope this helps.

Detailed Answer:
It takes time for the existing XXXXXXX to go off. If it does not start improving in a months time then please XXXXXXX a Dermatologist.

All the over the counter creams proved false and only hype.
