New You Anti-Aging Tip: Try a “snail facial” for hydrated, young skin.

Could snail mucus hold the key to youthful skin? A new beauty treatment originating in Japan uses snails to conduct facials in a treatment called “Celebrity Escargot Course.” The treatment is said to hold the secret to anti-aging. These special snails leave behind trails of slime on the face and works to moisture, while eliminating dry skin and minimizing pores. Before you start digging through the garden, remember backyard snails will not provide the same results. Only “celebrity snails,” purchased from an organic snail location, fed an all organic diet of vegetables, and kept in a room at a certain temperature will do the trick. Snails that are not treated under these conditions are said to harm, not help the skin. If you don’t mind a little tickle around your mouth, nostrils or eyes, this unorthodox procedure will cost approximately $240.00.
