How many months does it take for suntan to fade away?

About 3 to 6 months for me. Depending on how often I'm exposed to the sun during that time.

I usually try to stay away from sun, but this summer I have been exposed to sun and got suntan. Anyway, it's been already months and I still have it when I see myself in the mirror (my face including neck is darker than my body which was covered by T-shirt and my lower parts of hands are also darker than my upper parts, in short where my skin was exposed to sun still has suntan, basically something like this, just instead of red it's brown:

Anyone knows, how many more months I need to get rid of it completely?

It's autumn now and sun isn't stronger anymore.

No way of telling.  It differs from person to person.  Some people's skin simply heals faster or slower, but it usually takes several months.

 

If you tan that easily, by all means do consider wearing long-sleeved t-shirts and something to protect your head next summer.

Yeah, I was thinking about it too, but it gets very hot here where I live to wear long sleeved shirts, plus I have some tattoos on my arms I obviously want them to be visible when going out (then what was the point of tattoos if I would hide them, right?) & lastly, I love non-long sleeve t-shirts, I feel more comfortable in them. Anyway, thanks for the reply.

Ugh, that sucks. Wish I was living in a colder area where sun isn't that strong.

But then you have to deal with the cold, the snow and all the shit that comes with it. It ain't fun.

Heavy sun + white snow can still give you a sunburn though :P

 

but as mentioned above, it can last a bit. I am quite lightskinned and a tan can last me a couple months to fade away fully

It depends on how much exposure you had and how consistently along with your own genetics. 

My first job was pushing shopping carts. I got a very notable tan everywhere I wasn't clothed. It took years to fade... and not very long for it to return. 
I still can't get my torso to tan though.

Sure it's fun, if you're a kid and you get to play with it. But when you grow up and realize that you need to shovel that crap... There's nothing fun about shoveling that snow off/around your car, your driveway, entryway, etc...
It's hard to walk through it as well, especially if the city does a poor job at pushing it off the sidewalks in a timely manner. The road conditions are terrible, it's slippery to all hell, everyone forgets how to drive, there's always that moron who didn't think he needed winter tire so he caused an accident, blocking the street... Temperatures reach under -30˚C or worse, -40˚C with strong winds... And that's just the tip of the icebergs as far as the issues with cold temperatures goes. Because no, your job isn't on a holiday just because there was a heavy snowfall and it's cold... Heck, chances are, school ain't gonna be closed either.

I have to shovel...

Also, it's not cold enough here that schools don't close for a good amount of snow, but the school system doesn't close as much as it used to.

Never got past -18 in recent memory either. Kind of a happy medium.

Depends on how badly you were burned. The redness usually stops in days for me, but it takes a while, even months to get your color back if the sun damage was too much. Btw, I think it's normal to your face and neck be darker than your torso because they're exposed more.
