That’s what goes into facials at a luxury spa where the traditional Japanese treatment using imported Asian nightingale excrement mixed with rice bran goes for $180 a pop.
About 100 women and men go into the Shizuka New York skin care salon, just off Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, each month to get the treatment, which is promoted as a way to keep the face soft and smooth using an enzyme in the poop to gently exfoliate the skin.
It’s concerning that vain women will resort to this expense and nonsense. The dermatologist quoted in the piece says it’s no different effect than probably any other (more reasonable) exfoliant to rejuvenate skin.
