Sunscreen is the best anti-wrinkle cream
No wrinkle cream works better than preventing wrinkles in the first place with a good broad-spectrum (UVA and UVB blocking) sunscreen.
Best wrinkle creams contain retinol
If you already have wrinkles, the best cream to reduce them is a cream containing retinol or retinoic acid. Initially using these creams will cause some mild peeling and irritation but typically the skin adjust to this and the dryness should only last a couple of weeks. If you do not yet have any wrinkles and want to prevent them, the best cream to use is a sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher, that contains zinc oxide. If it also contains avobenzone or mexoryl that is even better....
Ultra Violet Light causes wrinkles and the best treatment is prevention.
The best anti-wrinkle cream is a good sunscreen that protects the skin against ultra violet light. The best sunscreens contain either zinc oxide or a combination of chemicals that include Mexoryl, and/or stabilized Avobenzone. To be truly effective, it has to be applied every day and in sufficient quantity to all sun exposed skin.
