Snails crawling across the face is the spa treatment du jour3/29/2012
Swim off, fish pedicures. A new spa treatment is slithering into the spotlight: snail facials. Snail mucus has increasingly been turning up in beauty products, and now there's buzz about a salon in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, that offers clients a "medical-cosmetic" procedure that consists of letting African snails undulate leisurely across their faces. Those with "Fear Factor"-worthy nerves and resolve are promised big dermatological rewards from the molluscan massages. Salon owner Alyona Zlotnikova says snail slime can help skin regenerate, minimize wrinkles and eliminate scars.
