Snail slime cream? Your guide to an informed choice
Snail slime has been used in cosmetics for about 10 to 15 years but its cosmetic qualities have only recently been highlighted. Its discovery, however, dates back to the early 18th century, and is due to pharmacist André Quevauviller. Knowing our skin type and thanks to the large offer currently on the market, we can choose the best snail slime face cream for us.
Snail slime cream for dry skin
Skin is defined as dry when it tends to dehydrate easily. After cleansing, it 'pulls', especially after contact with water. Dry skin is visibly parched and lacking in radiance.
For this skin type, we look for a cream containing a concentration of around 50-60% slime combined with oils that can provide additional moisture, such as shea butter, jojoba oil and collagen. Anti Aging Cream Nuvò is exactly what you are looking for.
Whenever possible, it is advisable to perform a thorough daily cleansing on one's face followed by a toning product (such as pure snail slime).
Dry skin is often rough and gives the unpleasant sensation of skin pulling. It is precisely for this reason that it is essential to look for rather heavy creams in the winter and medium-heavy creams in the summer.

Snail slime cream for oily skin
Oily skin is characterised by a shiny appearance: it usually shows fewer wrinkles, but many pimples, redness, enlarged pores, blackheads and, more generally, impure skin. Its typical hydrolipidic film hinders perspiration.
For this skin type, we look for a snail slime face cream that prevents our face from appearing shiny and oily: the ideal solution is a cream with a higher concentration of slime and a lower quantity of active oils.
As the percentage of snail slime increases, there follows an increase in the film-forming and tightening effect which, in dry skin, means an excessive 'tightening' effect but is perfect for oily skin, always in search of fast-absorbingand non-greasy creams.

Against acne, dermatitis and rosacea
In this case we are looking for a cream with slightly different characteristics. A cream suitable for young skin that is often impure and tends to be oilier (typical in teenagers).
The best choice would be a face cream containing snail slime in high concentration combined with aloe to increase the soothing and calming power of the product.
Another useful active ingredient is kiwi extract, that promotes skin regeneration.
Snail slime cream against stretch marks
The so-called stretch marks, are white lines that occur mainly in the belly area after pregnancy, but can also affect the legs and arms.
They form due to a structural change in the collagen and elastin fibres, which are no longer well 'organised': the matrix appears less compact and this causes the appearance of the famous 'white stripes'.
To counteract this particular blemish, snail slime cosmetics can come to the rescue: glycolic acid, elastin and collagen are naturally present in snail slime and, thanks to their exfoliating and restructuring power, are able to eliminate dead cells and impurities.
By promoting natural cell renewal, they induce a natural peeling that can prove helpful against stretch marks.

The eye contour must always be looked after carefully because it is a very delicate area, in which irritation and sensitisation reactions are most frequent. In addition to this, it is one of the first areas in which wrinkles known as 'crow's feet' appear.
Thanks to its tightening and soothing effect, the snail slime eye contour cream can help make the eye area brighter and less irritated. The product chosen must be extremely gentle and hypoallergenic, so it is always advisable to check that it is 'dermatologically tested'.
We should always be careful about the make-up we use. Allergy sensations, redness or swelling are often caused by the use of make-ups such as coloured pencils, eye shadows and mascaras that, after being opened and used, remain unused for a long time, hence giving bacteria the opportunity to proliferate.

The properties of snail slime cream
Here below are the different properties of snail slime creams:
- Anti-wrinkle: thanks to the mucopolysaccharides contained within it, it guarantees a film-forming action capable of smoothing and refining your face against the signs of ageing. Ageing leads to a slowdown in the circulatory activity of the dermis: on the one hand, we have a reduction in the supply of nutrients to the epidermal cells while on the other, a greater retention of 'waste' in the skin tissue. Snail slime face cream can be helpful thanks to the natural simultaneous presence of many active ingredients effective against skin ageing.
- Moisturising: contains collagen and elastin, active ingredients that characterise the epidermis, with strong moisturising, elasticising properties capable of acting in depth. Collagen is the fundamental protein and main structural component of the extracellular matrix of the dermis. Elastin, on the other hand, is a skin protein with marked elasticising qualities.
- Calming and soothing: the allantoin naturally present within the slime is able to alleviate skin imperfections such as acne, pimples and redness.
- Brightening, peeling effect: thanks to glycolic acid and its ability to eliminate dead cells, we can accelerate the natural cell replacement cycle, which makes our face brighter and reduces its impurities.
