If you can get over the initial ick-factor, putting snail cream on your face just might give you the glow you’ve always wanted. Snail mucin became popular after it was discovered that the farmers who handled snails to make escargot had noticeably younger, smoother looking hands. Studies have shown that snail cream stimulates the production of elastin and collagen (a.k.a. the things that keep your skin perfectly plump). It also naturally contains hyaluronic acid, which helps retain moisture. So test some snail cream and watch your dry skin escargot away.

Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate sounds like a wrong answer on chemistry test, but it’s actually the key ingredient of the holy grail skincare brand SK-II. This ingredient is made from a strain of fermented yeast and is used to keep skin smooth, moisturized, and glowing. A bottle of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence can run over $165 a pop. Luckily, there are reasonably priced dupes in the Korean skincare aisle. Try Missha Time Revolution The First Essence or the entire line of SU:M37, which specializes in fermented skincare.
This nourishing ingredient is actually a centuries-old remedy. Propolis, or bee glue, is a mixture of honey, wax, and other secretions made by honeybees to keep their beehives stuck together. Propolis has antibiotic and moisturizing properties, which gets rid of pimples and gives skin a dewy glow.
