Would You Try A Bird Poop Facial? Because It's The Next Big Beauty Thing

August 5, 2013 by Sara Alderman

This might just be crazier than the snail mucus face cream. The Shizuka New York skin care salon offers a treatment called the Geisha Facial. Sounds nice, right? Well, before you join the 100 other customers who flock to the NYC spa for this monthly treatment, you should know what the main ingredient is: bird poop. That’s right, and it’s not just any old bird poop. According to spa owner Shizuka Bernstein, the poop has to come from Asian nightingale birds because they live on seeds, as opposed to NYC pigeons who eat garbage. So don’t worry, you’re not getting garbage poop splattered across your face, just bird droppings filled with seeds. Sorry, I know TMI, but I’m just tryin’ to give you all the facts.

So now you’re either totally freaked out or wondering how this works. Well, the 60 minute $180 treatment is a mix of nightingale excrement with a side of Japanese rice bran. The enzyme in the droppings is supposed to exfoliate the skin and keep your face soft and smooth. Apparently, this treatment has been around since the 1600’s when geisha’s first discovered the beneficial properties of nightingale poop. Oh and the bird poops is supposed to be a “secret ingredient” unique to the Geisha Facial. Well, the cat’s out of the bag now. Would you put bird poop on your face if it promised to brighten and smoothen your complexion?!
