Have you tried snail therapy yet?

Have you tried snail therapy yet?One of the latest beauty treatments that is creating a buzz is the snail therapy. Though it was popular in Japan and Korea, it's slowly catching up in other parts of the world, too.

What's snail therapy?
It's primarily an anti-ageing treatment, where specially bred snails are left to crawl and slither on your face. The slime of the snail is, reportedly, very good for removing dead cells, reducing wrinkles, closing pores and reducing tan.

Is it popular in the country?
According to beautician Vasundhara, snail therapy is widely popular in Japan, China and the West, though it's yet to make a splash in India. She says, "It took a while for treatments like fish pedicure to find a footing in our country. Though bird poop facial, snake massages and leech and urine therapy are popular abroad, with celebrities even endorsing them, these are not commonly opted by women here, mostly because they feel revolted by the idea of creepy creatures crawling on them." Bharath Thakre, a cosmetologist, says, "Sometimes, we import creams containing the slime of snails or the secretion of leeches, which are approved by an international body. However, we use them on clients only after their approval. It might take a couple of years for such treatments to find popularity here."

Sonal Chauhan has tried it! 
When Sonal Chauhan was in London recently, she decided to check out what snail therapy was all about. We hear the actress spent about £160 (`15000) on it. She says, "I've never done a facial at a salon before. But I'd heard so much about the snail therapy that I decided to check it out. It was a weird feeling initially, letting the snails crawl on your face. But I checked thoroughly if they were bred under hygienic conditions. The therapy lasted for a little more than 30 minutes and was coupled with deep massages and other spa procedures. This treatment is supposed to tighten the skin and leave it moisturised. And I did feel the difference."
