Dark skin due to long hours in sun, using kojivit, sunblock. Ointment to regain original skin tone and complexion?

Hello doctor, I am a 18 year old boy, I was born very fair but for the past 3 years many football matches made my skin very dark that many who see me after a longtime ask about my tan and disfigured face and sun exposed parts. The rest of my covered parts are milky white, whereas face, neck and hands are dark. Presently I am using kojivit gel for the past 1 week. And also using a sunblock before stepping out. Kindly prescribe any ointment for making my tan disappear and revealing my original skin tone and complexion . For your information.I have also stopped playing football and avoid going out in sun for the past 1 year. Kindly guide me. I shall be grateful to u.

Sunscreen will help prevent the sun-exposure to your face, but not 100% prevention. Best way is to avoid sun exposure.
After start of any treatment, it requires months together to see the satisfactory improvement. One week duration is too short.
You must take treatment by consultant doctor, and should not be guided by anyone else.
