Snail Facials....No, Seriously!

Yes, you read that correct! SNAIL FACIALS! And it is as literal as it sounds!

We are always hearing about interesting beauty treatments that are being offered over in Japan, but this new one that includes a little creature crawling around on your face? Sounds pretty icky to me! However, according to the Spa in Tokyo, the snails' mucus contains properties to help recover the skin cells on the face. This includes power proteins, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid - which helps retain moisture, ease inflammation, and remove dead skin cells.

But don't go just searching for any snails to bring into your spa! These snails are bought from an organic farm and fed a specific diet of carrots, spinach and Swiss chard. The treatment lasts 60 minutes. After washing the face, a therapist places the snails on the skin and then follows with massages, electrical pulse machines and creams which have snail mucus in them.

Check out one person's experience here!

While this outlandish service is currently only offered in Japan, Pure Spa Direct can definitely help supply all of your unique facial services! What kind of interesting facials are you offering?? =)
