Snail Facials…??



If you ever watch Buzzfeed videos on Facebook you know they are always trying and doing crazy things from waxing their boyfriends bikinis to going bra less for a week and now Snail Facials!

You can watch the Buzzfeed video here!

Snails crawls on the face of a woman for the demonstration of a new beauty treatment at the beauty salon "Ci:z.Labo" in Tokyo on July 13, 2013 as the salon will start the new service from July 15. "Slime from snails helps remove old cells, heal the skin after sun burn and moisturise it," said Manami Takamura, a beauty salon employee, as she placed three gastropods on a woman's face.

The snail facial was pioneered in Tokyo’s Clinical Salon and first became available under the name Celebrity Escargot Course earlier this summer.


During the procedure, an esthetician places several live snails on the face of the client, where they distribute their mucus to remove dead skin cells and improve the skin’s ability to hydrate. The theory behind this alternative to more commonly discussed beauty treatments is that the snail’s mucus contains proteins, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, which rejuvenate the skin.

The experts seem to agree there is no real research proof that snail slime does anything special for the face beyond what enriched moisturizers do. The way these facials are performed thus far is by combining the application of the snails with a nice facial massage and also electrical micro-current stimulation, which theoretically temporarily opens cell pathways to allow larger molecules in so they can penetrate the surface.
