How far would you go to keep a youthful appearance?

Some women in Japan are paying $100 to have spas put snails on their faces.

Apparently, the snails have secret beauty-boosting mucus they leave behind as they slide across your face.

According to some medical professionals, the snail slime is packed with proteins, antioxidants and an acid that helps the skin retain moisture and reduce redness.
