Not as well as a good sunscreen

Sorry, they cannot. Sunscreens and prudent skin care may prevent wrinkles. These topicals would have to penetrate the skin in order to really help with wrinkles and none of them have this capability. It would be better to use a good sunscreen and a potent antioxidant to help prevent wrinkles.

While rosehips and orange do contain Vitamin C, and theoretically should help, Vitamin C must be in a stable form to do much good. There are a number of companies with good Vitamin C products including Skinceuticals, Neova, Vitivia, Neova, and Oil of Olay,
