The aging process is very obvious and everyone undergoes this phase at their own pace. Generally, the aging process starts when you are in your late 30s, this is the time when you start noticing age-related changes like wrinkles, fine lines, graying of hair and dark circles start becoming prominent. The two most common issues faced by people are wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes because the skin under the eyes is very thin as compared to the skin on the rest of the face. The under-eye skin is more sensitive to the environment, chemicals, and UV rays so it becomes thin and loses its elasticity. This is the first area in the face that shows the signs of aging, so under the eyes require special care and attention.
Here you will find some of the remedies to fix your dark circles and wrinkles so keep reading.
1. Cold compress:
