In fact, there is no such thing as Italian food. Whenever we go to an Italian restaurant back home, we expect pasta dishes, pizzas, and tiramisu as a dessert. However, there are some parts of Italy where it is barely impossible to find a single piece of tomato in your plate! Moreover, once you choose the town, try to know what is usually produced in that season, and you will eat the freshest dishes.

In Italy, most people pay for their things on a daily basis using cash. Moreover, they use paper bills to pay for everything, from their morning coffee, to their dinner, and everything in between. However, for those of you who have used to pay for small things at the grocery store with a credit card, do not get offensive when a waiter at a decent restaurant refuses your credit card.

You may be accustomed to waiters visiting your table every minute to see if everything was going okay and that you are enjoying your time at the restaurant. However, in Italy, it is different. The waiter actually leaves you alone to eat and waits far for you to call him if you need anything. In fact, this is not the waiter being rude, this is him or her leaving you to enjoy your meal as much as possible.

We have always heard about unusual spa treatments that leave us unsure about their effectiveness. A lot of people enjoy unusual, natural ways of massage therapy. In fact, Thailand has been one of the leading countries when it comes to Spa Therapies. However, Snail Massage comes on a whole new level.

What is Snail Massage?

Carmencitta-magazine-Thailand-Uses-Snails-for-Massages-1Before answering the question, let us not forget to mention that this idea first appeared in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. This location is surrounded by forests and jungles. It is not a surprise that they were able to come up with this idea. In general, the snails are applied to the face and left to roam on it.

As a result, a trail of mucus (coming from the snails’ body) is left on the face. This treatment is known to give a glow to the skin as well as encouraging its rejuvenation. In addition, experts claim that the snail essence removes dead skin cells and toxins that lay under the skin’s dermal layers.

Further Information

When the snails get stressed, they release a fluid called helix aspera muller glycoconjugates. In the spa, they leave the fluid on your face for a determined time and then massage it so it can enter as good as possible into the layer on the surface of your skin. In addition, this treatment in known to cost a lot of money. For instance, in Japan 5 minutes of snail massage cost about 160$.

However, no evidence (except for claims) has shown that those treatments are beneficial. Some people say that the fact that the fluid that the snails release can help reduce puffiness is because it is cold. This effect is the same as putting a cucumber on your face for it to reduce under eye puffiness.
