In brief: Most

Most wrinkles come from chronic sun damage, not dryness or aging per se.
Choose a cream with a broad spectrum sunscreen for daily use in the morning. Many manufactures make these products and the inexpensive drug store brands are as good as the $50 an ounce fancy name brands. For nighttime use, a cream with retinol (a vitamin a derivative) is helpful--again a drugstore brand is fine. Vitamin a derivatives (retinoic acid in particular) are one of the few products that can reverse sun related wrinking.
