Snail Mucin : The Elixir to Eternal Youth
People have gone all lengths in their quest for obtaining eternal youth and flawless skin. Look no more than the miracle beauty ingredient : Snail Mucin. The first reaction on hearing the word “Mucin” is disgust, mainly. But not if you know that this could be equivalent to elixir for your skin.
Snails were first prescribed in ancient Greece as a topical treatment to reduce inflammation, and they began to crawl their way into creams and elixirs in South America when farmers handling escargot en route to France noticed their hands looked younger and smoother. Of course Korean beauty picked it up and it is now a star ingredient as mentioned in Marie Claire and The Klog.
Snails are creatures of the wild and they have very delicate bodies which get bruised when they embark on sharp stones and trees. The mucin, which is basically the the semitransparent trail which they leave behind when they crawl is easily able to repair their bruises and reverse the damage done to their skin. Plus, Snail Mucin is full of goodies : peptides, hyaluronic acid, proteins, elastin, glycolic acids and is good for anti-inflammation and bacterial treatment. It’s the only product you need if you are looking for the following concerns:
- Oily Skin
- Fighting Wrinkles
- Anti-aging and preventive aging solutions
- Dry Skin issues
- Combination Skin
- Dehydarted skin
My favourite snail mucin products are the following:
1. Mizon Intensive Snail Repair Ampoule:
2. Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream:
3. Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin
Happy snailing you guys!
Till then, as I always say, keep your skin glowing!
