what's that crap on your face?


From New York Magazine, April 7:

A high-end Japanese spa in midtown has just introduced a new "Geisha Facial" which promises to cleanse, brighten and exfoliate a patron's face--thanks to a secret ingredient: bird poop. For centuries in Japan, both Kabuki actors and geishas used "uguisu no fun" to clean off their thick white makeup and soothe their faces; apparently, guanine, found in nightingale droppings, helped their complexions।
