Putting snails on your face now counts as a beauty treatment in Japan

Watch one reporter try out the snail facial.

Apparently, in Japan you can now pay people to put snails all over your face in the name of pretty skin and a reporter for The Telegraph tried it out. I hope she gets a raise.

Watch below:
The idea is that when the snails move around, they leave behind a trail of mucus that's packed with proteins, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, which leave the skin looking glowy and refreshed.

Her verdict? The snails felt "cool and heavy" which doesn't sound so bad, but then she mentions the part about seeing the tentacles out of the corner of her eyes and I'm out. But if snails become the next new thing in skincare and I ever do decide to try it, I figure lying around in some grass would be a cheaper route.

Weird, no?

I'll be 34 in a few short months. LOL I really don't care enough to go this route. I'll stick with honey and jojoba oil and maybe a little rose water with witch hazel. That stuff is way less disgusting. ;)
