However, you should better wear a pair of sunglasses to protect the eyes from the strong light which may also protect your eyes from getting the raccoon eyes.

    Well, generally speaking, it is kind of dangerous to have tanning. To protect your eyes from raccoon eyes, there are some tips you can follow. For example, you should find a waterproof foundation in the color of your tan or one shade lighter. So that your eyes are lighter than the rest of your face, so going one shade lighter is optional. Also, you can put some powder over the foundation to help seal and set it. You should know that it is a translucent powder. As we know that if you do not take some proper protection, ultraviolet rays from a tanning bed can invade through your eyelids. In that way, it can damage the cornea, lens and retina. In some serious situation, they can also lead to Cataracts and even blindness.
