Here is The Most Popular Anti-Wrinkle Recipe From the Famous Herbalist Maurice Mességué – Healthy Positive Mind –
Maurice Mességué is one of the most respected herbalists from the last century. According to him the best “first aid” against wrinkles is the mask and beverage made from barley, which today has also a basis in science and is used for rejuvenation.
– 200g of barley
– Cotton rags for coating, gauze
In 1 liter of water boil 200 g of barley seeds (preferably drenched overnight), for about an hour.
Blend the boiled barley, and then strain it through gauze.
That way you will get liquid and dense pulp.
Apply the pulp on a cleansed face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Then rinse with warm water.
Make a coating with cotton rags that you have already dipped in the liquid, and then apply to your face. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and drink a cup of the liquid.
Do this once a week.
You will get a beautiful, shiny and smooth skin, and the wrinkles will be visibly reduced!

Why barley is perfectly effective against wrinkles?
Barley is rich in unsaturated fatty acids. It contains vitamins A, D, E as well as a greater amount of vitamin B12 (which is otherwise rare in plants). It is rich in minerals such as potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, cobalt, fluorine and iodine.
Barley is also rich in pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), which plays a key role in the creation of red blood cells and hormones.
Barley contains lignans emitting estrogen and thus affect to a healthier looking skin. Lignans are phytoestrogens that stimulate the production of collagen.
The high presence of lignans in the blood is associated with youthful appearance and reduction of the risk of breast cancer.
Barley also contains azelaic acid, which is very interesting, and is also used in the cosmetic industry due to the effect of whitening and reduction of hyper pigmentation of the skin with external application.
The azelaic acid inhibits tyrosinase, an enzyme that causes the production of melanin and thus the appearance of spots.
