Cleansing is an essential part of a successful skin care regime. Not only does it help prevent break out of skin infections, such as acne, but it also helps keep premature ageing at bay. Many benefits come from the use of a cleanser. A deep cleanse is needed to clean out pores and any leftover residue which is still on the skins surface. This tightens the skin and shrinks facial pores, enabling less dirt and bacteria to enter the pores, thus preventing skin infections. Snail Slime has been found to have many rejuvenating effects on the skin. In the sixteenth century, Ambroise Paré, a pioneer surgeon to the French kings, found that snail secretion can be used to treat stretch marks after pregnancy. In the mid 1990? s, further studies found that snail secretion could be beneficial in many cosmetic products and procedures, improving many imperfections such as acne scarring, injury scarring, pollution of the skin and premature ageing.
