Snail slime is being hailed as the new miracle face-fixer in the US.


Primarily marketed as an acne solution, the shelled slug’s mucus is also believed to reduce pigmentation, scarring and iron out wrinkles, the Daily Mail reported.

Snail slime-based beauty products have been used since the Ancient Greeks recognised its potential, with Hippocrates reportedly recommending crushed snails to relieve sinflamed skin.

While creams containing snail slime have been popular in Korea and Africa for a few years, brands such as Missha, Dr Jart+ and Labcconte have begun to bring them Stateside.
