Disturbing Beauty Treatments – Snail Facial

If you’ve ever watched Fear Factor, then you’ve probably cringed and gasped as scorpions, snakes, and cockroaches crawled over people’s faces. If you’ve never watched Fear Factor, then you’re in luck, because that’s a terrible show. The people in the show do these gross things because they are hoping to win the prize money, but then there are people who will actually pay to have snails crawl on their face.

We are talking about a snail facial. At this point, we aren’t sure if the people coming up with these wacky beauty treatments are even trying anymore.

Yeah sure, put that starfish on your face or whatever.

This specialty facial treatment is available in a Tokyo salon, and as you probably guessed, it consists of live snails oozing their way across your face, leaving a trail of precious and apparently restorative snail goop. It is called the “Celebrity Escargot Course”, and it costs about $250.
If you don’t want live insects squirming on your face, you can just buy the snail lotion. Which has apparently become very popular.

The lotion also mixes well with eye of newt and toe of frog.

When we first read about the snail slime facial, we thought it was hilariously dumb. Apparently, however, snail slime has been used for thousands of years to treat skin disorders and conditions. Back in 400 BC, some guy by the name of Hippocrates mixed snail slime with sour milk and used it to treat all sorts of skin ailments.
The lotion is apparently very useful for mountain climbers specifically, because they are exposed to ultraviolet rays that damage the skin.
