MYQ Snail Rejuvenating Serum specializes in using Snail nourishing repair concentrate to maximize gentle hydration and firming of Dry, Aging Skin.
Widely popular in China, and used as a skin treatment in ancient Greece, Snail slime has made a HUGE comeback in recent years as a Korean-based beauty trend. Brands like Tony Moly and Missha sell moisturizers, masks, makeup creams and serums with snail slime in them, and a snail-infused “EscarGlow” facial has made its gooey mark on New York City.
New York City dermatologist Tabasum Mir told HuffPost exactly where snail secretions come from.
“When snails are agitated, they excrete a thick fluid as a means to protect themselves,” Mir said. When concentrated, this slimy snail mucin is said to aid human skin by hydrating, preventing aging and improving wrinkles and scars.
While hundreds of products are using Snail Slime as one of their main ingredients, the MYQ Snail Rejuvenation Serum stands out by pairing natural ingredients such as Glycerin, which is a plant-based oil, together with the Snail Slime.
By using Natural Ingredients together with the Snail Slime, the serum has a more balanced and "gentle" effect on the skin as compared to other products.
Remember, using a strong facial product may draw moisture out of your skin instead.
This special combination of ingredients created the "Glass Skin" effect that women in Asia adore.
(The "Glass Skin" effect is when a women's skin is smooth, plump, and glowing.)
