A salon in the capital Tokyo is offering customers the chance to sign up for a £165 SNAIL FACIAL.
Managers at the Clinical Salon claim snail slime is packed with proteins, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, which help skin retain moisture, reduce inflammation and remove dead skin.
While many will be too squeamish to get snail mucus on their mugs, adventurous Japanese are queuing up to try the bizarre treatment.
One happy customer said: “You can feel the snails moving on your face. At first, it’s surprising but it’s actually rather nice.”
