Don't knock it until you try it.
If we told you to slather snail mucus all over your face, would you do it? What if we told you it would hydrate, stimulate collagen, and promote a gorgeous, glowy complexion? If you're thinking "Not a chance," the good news is that you don't have to actually place these little critters on your face to reap the benefits (although snail facials do exist in South Korea, where they're all the rage); there are plenty of skincare products stateside that deliver the same results. And trust us, you won't even be able to tell that one of the ingredients comes from a snail.

This cream is great for solving a number of skin problems, such as refining pore size, fading acne scars, and promoting elasticity. Plus, if you're using it to treat active blemishes, you'll also benefit from its anti-aging effects, replacing the need for multiple products.
5 Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Fast-Acting Serum
If you're still uneasy about putting actual snail secretions on your face but don't want to miss out on all the benefits, this is the product for you. It uses synthetic snail venom paired with powerful neuropeptides and diamond dust to smooth expression lines in as little as three days.
