5 Crazy Things People Do for Beauty Around the World
1. Snail facials in Thailand
A new facial spa treatment in Thailand uses snails because of perceived benefits.
A snail’s 14,000 microscopic teeth produce a slight, reportedly “not unpleasant” scratching when it crawls on the surface of your face.
Snail facial will keep your skin moisturized and at the same time will remove dead skin layer gently. When using slime from live snails, the snails essentially do the work for you by spreading their mucus and giving you a facial massage.
Apitherapy involves treatments that use all products coming from bees, including bee venom. This treatment can be used to aid with multiple sclerosis, arthritis, infections, and shingles. Some people also use apitherapy to get over a fear of bees.
3. Snake Massage
An Israeli health and beauty spa that offers a creepy Snake Massage service to its customers. For just $80, you can have large slithering reptiles such as California and Florida king snakes, corn snakes and milk snakes, wriggle down your back and up your spine and across your face. If you don’t freak out, it can be soothing experience.
4. Hay treatment
The Hotel Heubad in northern Italy offers a spa treatment that involves covering a patron in wet, fermented hay. The idea comes from centuries of farmers sleeping in hay, only to wake up filled with energy. Allegedly, the treatment helps with muscle cramps, stiff joints, and even obesity.
5. Dough Treatment
In this practice a person has dough, that was made with black lentil flour and shaped into a circle, placed on a cramped area, normally the back. The dough is heated and medicate oil is then poured into the area, making it a little “well.” The practice also involves herbal steaming to finish it off.
