Would you put snail mucus on your face in the name of beauty? Well, a popular new trend created by Korean beauty brand MISSHA has women trying to find the good in the goo. According MISSHA’s Jessica Jeong, the Snail HydroGel mask uses the mucin of snails to fadeacne scarsand hyperpigmentation, moisturize and firm skin, clear complexions and minimize pores.
So, does it work? Well, dermatologist Dr. Neal Schultz told TODAY Style: “Believe it or not … snail mucus just may be good for your skin but only if the correct source and concentration are used,”. In other words… it would be just as good as using Retin-A or glycolic acid.
Quite honestly, I prefer snails with butter and garlic… But… if you’re feeling slimy, go for it!
