Best remedy for sunburn skin discoloration?

Sunblock/BBL therapy

Sunburn
Sun burn discoloration can be a pink or brown color and if you use sunblock over a few weeks to months, it will settle. If not settling then there were likely other problems like infection that may have prolonged the inflammation. Rarely, Broad based light (BBL) treatments may be needed to lighten the area.
