At 42, GMA-7 actress Carmina Villaroel is paying more attention to the skin around her eyes, where signs of aging are beginning to show.

In an interview, she says the one skin problem she always has to address are dark circles.

She explained, “Kasi lagi kami napupuyat ’tapos ako maputi pa, merong dark circle sometimes... So I really take good care of my eyes kasi may mga wrinkles din diyan on the side. Plus, I really go to my derma... I try to go mga twice or thrice a month."
