Depending on how you feel about snails, letting a bunch of the slimy, slow-moving creatures crawl all over your face might be your idea of a terror-inducing nightmare.

“This is an effective step in repairing damaged skin, improving skin elasticity and maintaining hydration levels for longer periods of time.”
