Hi,Ravish Singh,
Thanks for query,
As your work in the sun is unavoidable you have to take full protection to expose minimum sun.
Wear goggles on eye,
Wear full hand gloves on hands,
Wear cap on the head,
apply sun lotion before going to work,
take plenty of water.
ok and bye.

1) avoid too much exposure to the harsh sun especially afternoon. 2) Start using a sunscreen of 50+ spf regularly on all exposed body parts. 3) do a skin polishing
( microdermabrasion) for face and neck. 4) start taking cap skin O2 1 daily it is an antioxidant. Use ban a tan oint at night on tanned areas

The best ways to avoid sunburn are to

- limit time in the sun, especially between peak sunlight hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m
- wear protective clothing, including
- a broad-brimmed hat
- a shirt with sleeves that cover the arms,a long skirt or pants with long legs
- use a protective sunscreen to minimize the penetration of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays.

The sunscreen should be applied about a half hour before going outside to allow time for the sunscreen to soak in and take effect.
Sunscreen should be reapplied at least every two hours when staying outdoors for a prolonged period and after swimming, bathing, perspiring heavily, or drying off with a towel or handkerchief. Water- and perspiration-resistant sunscreens are available. However, even their protection will not last indefinitely.

Hi Ravish Singh
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
You can try some bleaching creams or Aloevera to bring back your complexion.You should use sunblock lotion with spf 30 property to avoid damage from hot sun.
spf 30 creams are available in pharmacies and you can use that when you are in sun to avoid severe exposure to sun.
Take care
