New Snail Beauty Treatment: Snail Facial Latest Skin Care Craze In UK

Author: Barcroft TV

COMM: Having snails creep all over your face may sound like your worst nightmare, but it's the newest skin care craze to hit the UK. The Simply Divine salon in Corby, north Hamptonshire, is offering the unorthodox snail facial treatment for £50. The testament, which lasts 20 minutes, sees 3 of the slimy creatures crawl around the forehead and cheeks. Diane: The snails we use are found for us. They're not garden snails, they're found organically and have a good life with us, so they're ok. COMM: After the facial, the snails are quarantined and separated from the others, so there is no danger of cross contamination.

The snails leave behind a trail of mucus, which is said to contain highly beneficial proteins and anti-oxodents giving the skin an amazing instant glow. Diane: Snail slime as got hydrohalic acid in there. It's got antioxidants, proteins, so for people who have got skin conditions, scaring, it's suggested that it's very beneficial. COMM: Diane has been working closely with Dr Chopra, who is the clinical director of the London dermatology clinic to study the lasting effect of snail facials. Diane: It's very therapeutic when the snails are placed on the skin, it's very cool, they move around very slowly and it's just that nice relaxing treatment.

COMM: It may be unusual, but this salon is hoping its radical new treatment will bring customers out of their shell.
