The secret to beautiful skin?


Nobody likes falling victim to birds’ mess dropping on them from above – even though it is supposed to bring good luck.

But for Victoria and David Beckham it is more a case of bird poo bringing them a good look, rather than good luck.

Victoria, who has long battled problem skin, puts her new clear complexion down to a bizarre new beauty regime involving bird poo.

And it seems David has been getting involved too.

It has emerged that the stylish couple have been indulging in beauty treatments to improve their skin.

Victoria, 34, has been regularly indulging in $200 Geisha Facials, using a paste made from nightingale droppings, to combat acne she has suffered since her teens.

A pal told Closer magazine: ‘When Victoria was in Japan recently she was admiring the local women’s clear skin and discovered it was down to these facials.

‘She was intrigued and when she got back to the US she found that some New York beauty salons now offer the treatment.

‘She tried it and loved how great her skin looked. She also uses a cream derived from nightingale poo at home.’



I did some reasearch on Geisha Facials, and this is what I found! A salon in NY called Shizuka specializes in these facials.  For more information on the Geisha Facial, go here!

Why Nightingale Droppings?

Shizuka remembered hearing about uguisu no fun from her mother while growing up in Tokyo. Japanese women have always prized pale, porcelain complexions and Shizuka’s mother always stressed proper skincare and limiting sun exposure. When Shizuka was researching new and interesting facial skin care ingredients, she thought back to her childhood and her mother’s story about how geisha used nightingale droppings to keep their skin clear and pale.

Are nightingale droppings safe/sanitary to use on my face?

Yes, the nightingale droppings used at Shizuka New York Day Spa are professionally sanitized under UV light and powdered before being applied to the face.

Does the nightingale droppings facial mask smell?

Although the uguisu no fun has a slight musky aroma on its own, Shizuka’s special mask formulation neutralizes this aroma, leaving a mild “organic” smell from the rice bran.

$180 for bird poop?

The Geisha Facial is a full facial skin care treatment that includes thorough cleansing of the face with Shizuka NY’s Skin Care System, pore extraction, light massage and an antioxidant collagen mask in addition to the nightingale droppings mask.
