For years, snails have been used for food and their slime has been utilized for beauty products; however, now snail facials are gaining in popularity. That means a whole live snail will be crawling on your face.
The secretion that comes out of a snail has long been used for skincare; it contains hyularonic acid and proteins along with other skin saving properties. Recently, salons in Tokyo, Japan have been allowing the snails to perform the facials. Participants lay back and snails are placed onto the face and forehead where they are free to roam around. This is said to help the recovery of damaged skin and skin cells, and will leave participants with a youthful glow. As long as you aren't squeamish, then having snail facials may just become a new part of your beauty routine.
