Something's Fishy in This Spa

Something's Fishy in This Spa

If you're tired of constantly exfoliating dead skin in the shower, you could always take a cue from the latest spa trend in China. Why not enlist an army of little fishies to do your dirty work? Boing Boing reports on the strangest spa treatment I have ever heard of. Garra Rufa, a tropical fish, are dropped into hot springs, where they devour dead skin:

When placed in the spa, these fish can feed themselves on the dead cells of the human body, since they only consume such cells, leaving the healthy skin of the human body to grow. The whole process is reportedly free of pain. It won't hurt and the bather might feel a pleasant tingling on his or her skin.

I don't think I would be able to do this treatment, largely because I'd worry about a wayward fish wriggling its way into my nether regions. (A bottom feeder, perhaps? Zing!) Between these nibbling fish and this fragrance, it's turning out to be a very peculiar week in beauty...
