welcome to healthcare magic ....
You can use sun screen lotions to protect yourself from getting tanned. Sun screen lotions with SPF > 30 is wat is recommended , apply when ever you go out in the sun , on the exposed regions. this would be effective for 2 hrs and if you remain in the sun for more than 2 hrs reapply.
Avoid going in the sun between 10 - 4 .
Use full sleve clothes if you go out under the sun.
