NEW YORK (PIX11) — It’s east meets west as a lot of Asian beauty ingredients are making their way into the United States.

Lisa Mateo talked with beauty expert, Jeanette Zinno, about the beauty products from Asia that incorporate wild ingredients like snake venom, red snapper and coral.

Then she gets a “snail slime” facial at B-Spa Bar. But not that kind of snail slime. The snail extract is a powder and is mixed with collagen and applied using a special machine. Together it hydrates the skin, and loosens lines and wrinkles. B-Spa Bar is located in The Thompson Hotel LES, 190 Allen Street. http://www.bspabar.com
