Hello.I don't think it is due to salt water.Main cause of change in complexion is exposure to sunlight and stress.Use a broad spectrum sunscreen and physically avoid exposure to direct and indirest sunlight.Lightening creams may help to some extent.Meet a dermatologist to check for Vit B 12 deficiency and cortisol level.
