If you’re an insider on the beauty scene, then you must know that these little, slimy friends – snails – can do wonders for our skin. How? Ask any K-beauty expert, and they’ll tell you that snail mucin (yes, the sticky stuff) has been proven to help stimulate collagen and elastin – two key factors in the anti-aging process.
According to W Magazine, “Snail mucin, which has been in use in many Korean beauty products for several years now, is an extract (yes, harvested from actual snails) that has a bevy of nutrients like hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes and antimicrobial peptide (all substances often found in beauty products).”
So which brands can deliver the results?
Nature Republic’s Snail Solution Mask, being one of my all-time personal favorites, tops my list for sheet masks. I use it 3 times a week, especially after a good run on a treadmill, and it leaves my skin feeling moisturized, tight and supple. Of course, good diet and exercise are necessary for any type of anti-aging and healthy lifestyle, but a snail sheet mask could be that tipping point.
Tony Moly also has a great selection of snail masks, which can be easily ordered online through U.S merchants like Macy’s and Amazon plus global shippers like YesStyle.
If you are looking for new sheet masks to brighten your skin and give it that extra moisture for the summer, make sure you try a snail mask.
