Antioxidants will reverse your wrinkles. This is a common misconception.
Antioxidants can help prevent wrinkles by soaking up harmful free radicals that damage your collagen.
Wrinkles result when collagen is damaged by ultraviolet radiation. Antioxidants, regardless of how potent they are, cannot alter existing collagen that is damaged. Antioxidants therefore do not treat existing wrinkles.
In terms of topical creams, only products that can cause growth of new collagen such as tretinoin (like Renova®, Retin-A®, and Tazorac®) can treat existing wrinkles.
