Wrinkle: The sign of aging

Wrinkles can be seen around the eyes, nose, and lips on the face skin after a certain age. And they don’t stay same at different stages of life, as with age they keep enlarging and appearing more and more. And they become the matter of concern for everyone. People facing the problem of wrinkles on their face, always have a question in their mind that what are these, and why appear more on their face after a definite phase.
