Beautiful with Bird Poop…

RTL TV (Germany)

That Americans come up with crazy, weird beauty treatments is nothing new to us. At least we thought so until our New York reporter Silke Haas told us she had a facial with bird droppings! For a full 130 euros the trend is to make the skin as smooth as a baby’s butt with bird poop! And so our colleague visited Shizuka New York Day Spa to try out the so-called “Geisha Facial®.”
“Nightingale droppings” are what the spa owner so elegantly calls that which comes from a bird’s behind. Silke Haas sniffed the droppings and concluded “It’s not what I would call a beautiful smell…”
The nightingale excrement, powdered and sterilized with UV light, is mixed with an aromatic rice flour and laid on before a deep pore cleaning. The face is then massaged for several minutes with the special mix.
“It feels a little bit grainy and smells mealy. I look forward to the outcome, ” said Silke Haas.
After 50 minutes of treatment, the conclusion: “My face is smooth as a baby’s behind and a bit lighter, supposedly due to the guano,” said the RTL reporter, “and my skin feels very relaxed.”
