For Beauty: Giant African Land Snails On Your Face

giant-snails-on-face-beauty-treatment.jpg

Seen here with faces no amount of snails can cure, two women experience a new "medical-cosmetic massage" in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Basically they let giant African land snails roam around on their faces (previously: Japan's little snail facials). I'll, uh, I'll just stick to exfoliating in the shower.

Snails' massage method, which is believed to speed up the regeneration of the skin and to eliminate wrinkles and scars, has become more popular among beauty salons and female health clubs of the city

"Believed to speed up the regeneration of the skin and to eliminate wrinkles and scars?" I don't know about you, but I'm going to need to see some proof first before I let one of those bastards slime its way across my face. 'Might be beneficial' isn't good enough for me. It's like those fish tanks people put their feet in so the little fish can eat the dead skin off until they realized just how disgusting and unsanitary that is. If you put your feet in a fish tank it better be filled with piranhas and there better be a bet involved. I will also accept trying to impress a lady.

Thanks to Alexandre F, who heard tarantula facials are the real deal.

    My grandpa smashes those in Hawaii. Sometimes with a pick axe if he's in the mood. Maybe he can take care of those snails on those lady's faces.

    I'm waiting for the day when somebody uses feces as some new beauty treatment.

    I bet that somewhere there is a rich person laughing about how women pay to have shit rubbed in their faces!

    "And they believed in all!"

    This was on an episode of Penn and Teller's Bullshit. Except they actually made the treatment up for the show. Awkward.
