Don't sun bathe!
Always wear a hat with a brim when walking outside to protect your face.
Wear sunscreen to prevent sun damage & wrinkles, and apply every two hours while in the sun.
Eat a diet that promotes health: lots of vegetables, no sugar. Let me repeat that. No sugar. Your skin is really a reflection of what you eat. Sugar is poison.
Lots of water to stay hydrated.
Learn how to deal appropriately with life's stresses. Otherwise, they show in your complexion & you can get worry lines.
Remember, eat your vegetables and no sugar!

First, the answer is yes, retinol can make wrinkles worse, especially when you first start using it. What is happening is a drying effect, and one can get epidermal sliding from separation from the dermis. But this is temporary, and will eventually end up tightening the skin around the eyelids, provided you are using a potent retinol preparation.
