If you are still not using snail essence as part of your skincare beauty routine, you are missing out Big Time! These days you will find a lot of skincare products that feature snail secretions. Yes, we know it sounds weird but as you will find out it is a key ingredient for making you look younger.
Putting snail essence in your skin was a common skin treatment in ancient Greece. This substance made a comeback in recent years as part of the Korean-based beauty trend. It seems that every Korean brand sell moisturiser, makeup, makeup cream, and serum with snail slime in them.
First, let us explain where snail secretions come from. When snails are perturbed, they discharge a thick fluid to protect themselves. Studies discovered that when concentrated, this slimy snail mucin can help human skin by hydrating, preventing aging, and improving wrinkles and scars.
Snail mucin contains hyaluronic and glycolic acid and is a good source of peptides. The glycolic acid in snail mucin helps your body produce collagen and elastin, which even out skin tone and smooth its surface.
Studies have shown that snail essence creams can improve eye wrinkles and skin texture just after 12 weeks. Snail mucin can help with hydration of the skin, treats wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin conditions.
