The latest craze for younger looking skin may make your skin crawl.

The new fad facial slithering into Japanese salons involves snails crawling all over customers' faces.

The salons claim they make human skin look younger. One salon says the secret is in the snail's mucus which contains proteins and anti-oxidants.

Snail mucus in beauty treatments isn't new. Lotions and creams containing snails have grown in popularity in recent years.

For a 60-minute treatment, customers have to shell out $250.
