Women go a long way for beauty. Our feminine Italian ancestors once took part in the fashion of applying powdered insects with wax as lipstick. During Medieval times crocodile fat was trending as the must have “wrinkle cream”. And how long did the Japanese women of the Heian period go? Back then their beauty was judged by how long their hair measured, which on average was two feet below their waist.
In modern times luxury beauty treatments are still trending. The new animal product is: nightingale droppings! How does a bird poop facial sound to you?
Women and men alike are flocking to Shizuka New York skin care salon off of Fifth Avenue in Manhattan for the Geisha facial (a pretty name for the bird poop facial), an exotic facial with the active ingredient being nightingale droppings imported from Japan. The facial is said to offer skin rejuvenating effects due to the enzymes created in the nightingale excrement. About 100 clients take part in this facial each month, but at the price of $180 each application, isn’t there an alternative that you could turn to for home use and long lasting effects? LifeCell All-in-One Anti-Aging Treatment is a home facial treatment that you can turn to for its anti-aging prowess.
Here is a brief comparison of the facial products and how they stack up against each other:
The Geisha Facial is offered at the Shizuka New York skin care salon but other luxury spas are catching on fast and it is being offered in other spas around the country. The treatment is a renowned beauty secret in Japan passed down from mother to daughter, and Japanese women claim that this treatment is what has kept their grandmother’s skin so beautiful and youthful. But don’t be mistaken, not just any bird poop can go into this fancy treatment. The facial uses nightingale poop exclusively due to the pure diet that the Nightingales eat. Nightingales feast on seeds and therefore their excrement is rich in rejuvenating enzymes perfect for exfoliating skin care. The excrement is also full of guanine a part of our own skin cell DNA. This perfect “formula” has made the excrement a go to beauty facial for many New Yorkers.
But some people frown at the thought of applying bird excrement on their face. And there is also some debate on the cleanliness of the bird excrement. The excrement comes from birds in a highly controlled environment and is sanitized, but that might not be enough to keep their excrement in healthy condition. Lai Shiow-suey, an honorary professorat the National Taiwan University School of Veterinary Medicine stated that birds infected with the H7N9 avian influenza in high concentrations can transmit the virus to their excrement. We all know the deadly risks the influenza poses, so it seems there is just no way you can be 100% sure that a bird poop facial is safe.
On the other hand, our LifeCell Treatment is another skin care treatment exclusively for anti-aging facial skin. The main ingredients include hyaluronic acid, which is utilized for its moisturizing capabilities, and Deanol, (DMAE) another quality ingredient which helps firm and revitalize the skin. The cream is not just a one-time application, either. With one tube of LifeCell, you can easily have enough cream to last 3 months’ time. The cream is also all in one – this means that your old night cream, firming serum, and moisturizer will get the boot thanks to our All-in-One LifeCell Treatment. The results are long lasting and there is another benefit: we are PETA friendly! Each day our fan base of animal lovers grows because our products are cruelty-free. When you compare the animal loving innovations that LifeCell has made as opposed to using birds for their poop you will see how unattractive the Geisha Facial really sounds.
When it comes down to it there are many ways that you can treat your face to luxury treatments. Whether the nightingale facial appeals to you or you would rather opt for a cruelty-free long lasting option that provides real anti-aging results is your choice. But at $180 for one treatment compared to $180 for 3 months of long lasting skin rejuvenating effects, it seems very clear which facial treatment is the winner.
