At last, an anti-aging solution that we can all afford! In the newest and perhaps strangest of all beauty fads people are using snails to banish wrinkles and give them tight, shiny skin.
Snail slime is sticky and gooey and it helps keep the bottom or ‘foot’ of the snail as smooth as silk.
“And that’s what makes it perfect for smearing all over your face,” says Beauty Consultant and snail fan Les Cargot. “This is no tall snail tale. Take a look at the bottom of any snail and I guarantee that you will not find a wrinkle. The snail naturally oozes its own lubricant that smoothes away creases and wrinkles. I’m recommending snail slime to all my clients. If it can work for a snail, imagine what it will do to your face.“
Daily Snail columnist Liz Moans told Yarpnews: “It takes the slime from approximately 20 snails to adequately cover your face. For perfect results the experts suggest that you keep them on for at least three hours.”
“If three hours seems too long to have a bunch of snails on your face, you can simply keep a couple tucked behind your ears instead. Keeping snails behind your ears means that they are free to roam all over your face, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It’s a truly fantastic way to keep your face smooth and fresh looking. And once you have had you snails done, you can always release them back into the garden – or if you are feeling French you could enjoy a tasty treat. Just sauté the snails in butter and garlic and serve with French bread – delicious.”
