BEAUTY Want to look younger? Snail slime could be the answer!
ATokyo-based beauty salon offers a new face therapy that uses ‘snail slime’, looking to roll back the years. The salon Ci:z.Labo says slime from snails helps remove old cells, heals the skin after sunburn and moisturises it, Japan Times reported. And, this is said to have ‘pure snail essence’ directly on the skin.
Snail slime is believed to have anti-ageing effects on human skin, and some cosmetics are already sold with essence of escargot. The salon’s Celebrity Escargot Course includes five minutes of snail therapy, along with a massage and other types of facial treatment.
