You read that right, the latest beauty trend happening in Japan right now is the snail facial. Beauty salon “Ci:z.Labo” in Tokyo gives women the opportunity to clear their skin through a five minute treatment that consists of snails crawling on their face along with a massage.

Tokyo beautician Manami Takamura states that “The snail slime makes your skin really supple and removes dry, scaly patches. It’s also got great hydrating properties and moisturizes the skin.” It is believed that snail slime contains an anti-aging effect on human skin.

Although some of us may see snails as pesky and slimy or even a delicious delicacy, Japan is definitely transforming the use of these creatures and women are paying a pretty big price for this treatment. One session costs approximately 10,500 Yen, which is about $107. Would you want to get the “Celebrity Escargot Course?” Let us know in the comments below!
