Snail Facials Are Back in the Headlines…. Again
This isn’t the first time snail facials have made its way in the headlines. Every few years it seems to come up and shock us all. Women have been using snail gel (also known as snail cream extract) for years. Back in 2009 one of my readers recommended that I grab a jar and try it out. It’s mainly used a gentle exfoliator to promote cell turnover and reduce fine lines and blemishes. It didn’t anything for my skin but the jar was inexpensive so there were no hard feelings or disappointment. The snail facial in Thailand works slightly different because they’re using live snails so ideally it should be a more aggressive treatment but others are reporting otherwise.
