Strange Beauty Treatments - Bird Droppings Facial

I avoid the news like the plaque but for some unknown reason my hubby wants to watch it everyday!  So I am forced to sit there and play on my phone or tablet while he watches the news. Torture.. well not really but I like to fuss about the news being on.  Occasionally something catches my attention. Like the story the other day. The anchor lady said next up a "Bird Poo Facial" Wait!! Did she really just say what I think she said?? Rewind that.. Yes she did.

It appears someone has discovered bird droppings are good for the skin. Somewhere a person is lying in chair waiting for bird poop be to smeared all over their face. The best part, people are paying $180 for an hour long facial message with it! I was appalled, amazed, and  disgusted by the thought of having bird poop put on my face but of course I was intrigued and had to listen.

So this is the deal it's a Japanese tradition and it is not just any bird poop it is imported from Japan SANITIZED and milled into a fine powder.  Just like any other facial it lot of ingredients to brighten, soften and nourish the skin the main ingredient being uguisu no fun (nightingale droppings) .  I couldn't help but laugh because I nightingale droppings doesn't sound as harsh as nightingale poop but it boils down to the same thing.

I am not sure what i think about this treatment because I know if woman came out looking twenty years younger I would think about going gather my own bird poop and give myself a facial. Oh wait they warned us not to try it at home.  So I guess we can still freak out if a Pigeon drops a bomb on us in our home town because it just won't be the same. After all the treatment is nightingale droppings, not pigeon.

What are you thoughts on a Bird Droppings Facial? Have you tried one? Would you try one/

Pictures are not mine, they were found on a Google Search.
