Snail facial: Japan’s latest beauty craze. Photo: AFP
The latest beauty and spa facial trend in Tokyo, Japan is a 60-minute treatment called the Celebrity Escargot Course. It’s costs about $270. During the treatment, five organically-bred and fed snails are placed on your face. The mucus the snails secrete to move apparently has been found to contain beauty-boosting proteins.
Hey, it’s not the most unusual thing found in Asian beauty treatments. Not knowing anything about snail slime or it’s likely skin benefits – we’ll simply let you formulate your own opinion.
Might we suggest an option – Bel Mondo Masks
