Sunscreen : Sunscreen of SPF 20 to 30 protects the skin from UV rays of the sun protecting you from sunburn and preventing tanning. However it is not going to prevent all tanning. Apart from this , other medical conditions such as endocrine disorders can cause hyperpigmentation of the skin. Please consult your local dermatologist for expert opinion.
