Hello..Thanks for your query

In order to prevent the darkening of skin, it is extremely important to use a sunscreen throughout the day.This should be applied 20 mins before sun exposure and repeated 4-6 hourly when outside.Even indoors it is important to apply sunscreen throughout the day.
This prevents not only tanning, but also the other long term effects of sunexpoure.
You may also have oral anti oxidants and Vitamin C to prevent photo damage to your skin.
Hope this is helpful
