These are my favorite in a series of Old Wives Tales, beauty treatments from around the globe. Top secret ingredient! Uguisu No Fun. This facial was made popular in today's world by Victoria Beckham when she revealed on the Oprah Show the secret ingredient in her skin care regime. An ancient Japanese tradition was born from the Geisha and Kabuki actors known for their porcelain skin. In truth, they suffered from chronic acne and skin discolorations from the ingredients in their makeup. A deep cleansing facial with Nightingale (actually, it's from the Japanese Bush Warbler but Nightingale sounds prettier) droppings was found to heal, brighten, lighten and retexturize the skin. the natural occurring enzymes and guanine leave the skin beautifully smooth with a pearly glow. Who knew a crappy facial could be this good!
