We've seen small snails used as a spa treatment, but how about using these huge snails as a snail beauty treatment? This new Russian facial treatment chucks small snails out in favor of giant African Land snails. The bigger the snail, the more surface is covered, so now you don't need three or snails crawling around your face, you can just have one big one.

This Snail beauty treatment is said to use the snails massaging movements to eliminate scars and wrinkles and soften skin. The large size of the African Sand snails used in the Russian version of this therapy means fewer slugs on your face possibly less time spent with things on your face to reduce the icky factor, if that's a concern. It's an unusual treatment, but an apparently effective one.
