I'm just curious to know whenever I had a swimming in a swimming pool, later I found my skin colour getting slightly darker. Is this something normal & how to avoid my skin from getting darker?

Is it better to have a bath before swimming or after swimming?

I assume you are talking about a suntan by your skin getting darker after swimming.
