Educate Tanners on How to Prevent “Raccoon Eyes”

February 2019 – EYE PRO, Inc., world leader in disposable eye protection for indoor tanning and makers of Ultra Gold WINK-EASE, Lash Room WINK-EASE and WINK-EASE Dark, works with salons to keep clients educated about protecting their vision.

“Salons have an uphill battle in educating tanners on the importance of eye protection. Many clients won’t wear eyewear to avoid tan lines around their eyes,” says Brenda Fishbaugh, EYE PRO president. “We work with your staff to provide tips to share so tanners can avoid the dreaded ‘raccoon eyes’ and wear their eye protection every time they tan,” explains Fishbaugh, a 28-year tanning industry veteran.

It’s so important for tanners to tan with a clean face, and remove all lotions and makeup, as SPF products will cause large raccoon eyes.  Even men’s facial moisturizers can contain SPF and prevent their faces from tanning. “One tip we stress is to be sure to remove those products completely BEFORE you tan,” explains Jackie DeWald, EYE PRO Office Manager. “Another quick tip is to move your eye protection slightly during the session, which will diminish any possible tan line.  We also like to suggest applying a dab of bronzing lotion on the eyelid and under the eye after tanning to help minimize any possible lines eye protection might leave,” enthuses DeWald.
