Thanks for your query. Physical protection is by far the cheapest and best way to prevent and reverse tanning. It can be in the form of scarf, umbrella, etc. along with that chemical protection in the form of a good SPF sunscreen is also important. Chemical peeling helps to exfoliate skin to a very deep level thus removing tanning and helps in lightening and brightening the skin. A series of chemical peels are generally required which helps you achieve your colour. Hope it helps.
