Bird poop facial

Would You Pay $216 For a Poop Facial?

The latest skin-perfecting treatment to have New York women all in a tizzy is, quite literally, a load of crap. Bird crap, to be exact. The "Geisha Facial" is so named because geisha have used nightingale droppings as a makeup remover. (You can buy your own from Chidoriya.) The facial entails slathering your face in guano flown in from Japan. (Thankfully, it is zapped with a UV light to kill any lingering bacteria.) All this for the low, low price of $216.

But it's not all BS: The poop contains a compound called guanine, which is said to remove pollutants from the skin, to clear pores, and to even out skin tone. It's my doody to ask you: Would you try this treatment, or are you pooh-poohing it?
