Hi Maria, Thanks for posting your query

I understand your concern for fair complection
There are creams available which may give two or three tones lighter skin by removing superficial tanning but not change colour drastically
You may use the following:

A sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection to be applied during the day , half an hour before you go out and repeat every 3 hours this prevents tanning and sun damage

Apply kojic acid or glycolic creams at night , to start with apply for two hours then increase it to overnight slowly

oral Vit C,E, beta carotene supplements will give antioxidant effect.

I advise you to use it under expert guidance as they may cause some side effect like redness or burning sensation in rare cases

Hope this helps you
