Time: Time resolves suntans naturally. No medications needed. No drug side effects to worry about. After about 1 year, the suntan should be faded away (some people fade in a few months, while others take over a year). Of course, use sunscreen-containing daily moisturizers to decrease tanning in the meantime.
