Snails crawls on the face of a woman for the demonstration of a new beauty treatment at the beauty salon 'Ci:z.Labo' in Tokyo on July 13, 2013

Having live snails crawling on your face sounds like the thing of nightmares, but in Japan one company is hoping people will be prepared to pay for it.
Starting Monday, women who want to slough off dead skin, clear their pores or roll back the years can submit themselves to five minutes of molluscs.
"Slime from snails helps remove old cells, heal the skin after sun burn and moisturize it," said Manami Takamura, a spokeswoman for Tokyo-based beauty salon Ci:z.Labo, as she placed three gastropods on a woman's face.
"In this way, you can have 100 percent pure snail essence directly on the skin."
Snail slime is believed to have an anti-aging effect on human skin, and some cosmetics are already sold with essence of escargot.
But Ci:z.Labo beauty salon is going one step further in what it says is the first live snail treatment in Japan.
As part of the salon's "Celebrity Escargot Course" customers will get five minutes of snail therapy, along with massage and other facial treatments.
The snails alone cost 10,500 yen ($106). Sayaka Ito said she had found the treatment so relaxing that she had almost fallen asleep.
"You can feel the snails moving on your face. At first, it is surprising, but it's actually rather nice," she said.
"My skin really does feel smooth and moist."

yup. it is the "natural treatment" I learned many years ago to heal the burns and scars.

But the same "essence" You got when You allow some snails to travel on the clean glass (sanded-glass surface causes the snails to produce more fluids), then dry the glass and wash down the essence by the small amount of destilled water. Reducing the volume of the water in the container - by the eveporation - you can have "pure essence" right in the jar.

No snails have to "travel across Your nose" :)
