my skin is permanently tanned from being in the sun for most of my life almost everyday without wearing sunblock and I live in Texas. I started wearing sunblock this year almost for 5 months now and I'm 19. I have a burn mark I got about 2 years ago or more and the scar is like a few shades lighter and I want my skin the color of my scar. I exfoliate now for about 6 months to a year now and Idk what to do please help me. I exfoliate my skin off sometimes in some small areas.

Sun Tanning -- Minimize Exposure/ SPF30; Medical Tattooing
I suggest minimizing your sun exposure and applying an SPF of at least 30 when outdoors. Burns can be treated with lasers or tatooing. Best, Dr. Emer
