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.
