Dermatologist said it is important to avoid going out in the sun between 10 am and 4 pm, and if this is impossible, then always walk out after thoroughly covering the exposed areas.

"Avoid going out during that time as the sun is at its strongest. Stay indoors if you can to protect yourself from the elements. Wear a hat when you go outside. The hat will protect your face from the heavy sun and give you physical cover from UV rays," says the expert.

Also, it is important to wear sunblock with both UVB and UVA protection. "UVB block protects you against tanning and skin cancer, while UVA block protects against pigmentation and photoageing. So, look for a sunscreen that is at least SPF 30 with PA ++ protection for broad spectrum coverage. Sun rays can penetrate through windows, and exist even when it's cloudy or raining. So, protect yourself no matter what," added the expert.

Also, one can choose for peels like fruit bio-peel and vegetable peel that will brighten your skin tone from within. If one is not ready to step out to visit parlour, then opt for home remedies.

"Start off with this remedy by adding two ripe mashed strawberries into a spoon of fresh honey. Apply it as a face pack until it dries and wash off to reveal fairer and softer skin. Strawberry will act as a perfect tanning removal agent while the honey will help soothe the skin," suggested another expert.
