Crow’s feet and dark circles under the eyes appear gradually. The first signs of aging appear around the eyes. Prevent and repair the signs of aging by wearing sunscreen and sunglasses. Apply an eye cream in the morning and evening.
Remember to take care of the rest of your face, too, as well as your neck and chest. Apply an anti-aging cream every day, even if you don’t see any wrinkles or fine lines.
