    Hi

    from the details you provided your problem seems to be mostly because of sun tan. just to prevent it in future use sun screen with a SPF range of 30-40. wash off the cream immediately after you reach home as retaining cream over skin for long duration will make skin look much darker.cover completely while going out to avoid direct exposure to sun. drink plenty of water as it gives your skin good glow. certain home remedies will help to reduce tan like packs made with cucumber juice, lemon juice and turmeric powder.
