The things some brides-to-be put themselves through to be flawless for their weddings. Trust me, I completely understand. Sure, the wedding is only one day but pictures are forever.
However. Some so-called beauty treatments are enough to stop you dead in your tracks. Take the new "Geisha Facial" offered by the Shizuka Spa in New York City. Well, Geisha must mean "bird poop" because a main ingredient in this facial is Nightingale droppings. No kidding. Some of us might turn up our noses (I know I am) but the salon says Geisha and kabuki actors once used the secret mixture to achieve clear, unblemished complexions. Check out Shizuka's website if you're, um, interested. The poop is $180 a pop.
