Nail it with snails
, July 18, 2013
Snails crawl on the face of a woman during a demonstration of a new beauty treatment at Clinical-Salon Ci:z.Labo in central Tokyo on July 17.
Clinical-Salon Ci:z.Labo, which began the unique facial earlier this week, offers the 10,500 yen ($110) five-minute session with the snails as an optional add-on for customers who apply for a "Celeb Escargot Course", an hour-long treatment routine of massages and facials based on products made from snail slime that costs 24,150 yen.
According to a beautician at the salon, the snail slime is believed to make one's skin supple as well as remove dry and scaly patches. Reuters/Issei Kato
