Beauty gone bizarre!


There is a tiny nation floating in the Pacific Ocean that’s known for its technology, sushi, sumo, origami and its quirky trends and cults. That’s Japan for the outside world. Self-sufficient…futuristic…brave! While Japan is also known for its beautiful women with flawless complexion, what is not known is how they keep it clean and polished! From indulging in nightingale poop facials to eating breast-enhancing cookies, there are several strange beauty habits that women indulge in not only to feel prettier but also to stay in trend!

1FACE SLIMMING – GET THAT SIZE ZERO FACE!

A slimmer face is considered beautiful and desirable in Japan. Thank goodness, there are many tools to help get rid of chubby cheeks and double chin and attain the desired look. There’s a re-sculpting massage that shifts facial bones, a roller to smoothen face muscles, stickers to slim your cheeks, a mask that shrinks the face, and a mouthpiece that reduces face fat simply by wearing it and talking through it!

2 NOSE STRAIGHTENER – MAKE CROOKED STRAIGHT

There’s always a cheaper something to expensive surgeries and re-corrections. And Japanese manufactures know that, hence they keep coming up with products to lure prospective customers. Hana Twin Nose has been designed with this in mind. The nose clip is supposed to strengthen and straighten your nose when you insert it in your nostrils 20 minutes per day! If it doesn’t hurt the nose and the pocket, why not put it to test. And Japanese women are buying the idea with this in mind.

3 PAPER EYELASH – FLUTTER. FLIRT. HAVE FUN.

Sometimes it’s all about the eyes and what you have on them! Apart from false eyelashes and extensions, women are finding newer ways to glorify their eyes. Paper eyelash is an interesting way to add length, volume and character to the eyes, while making a fashion statement too. Origami isn’t new to Japan but it seems like Japanese damsels are taking the art rather seriously, isn’t it?

4 NIGHTINGALE FACIAL – POOP IS THE SCOOP

Ladies, forget botox, and go back to the basics. If you know nightingale only as a songstress, you do not the little bird that well. Nightingale poop is a fantastic beauty-enhancing product, all thanks to its natural enzyme that helps lighten and give skin a fine luster. Since the poop is a fine, odorless powder, it can be easily mixed with water and applied as a face mask. The bird dropping is actually a beauty regime that many celebrities from around the world swear by!

5 BUST ENHANCING COOKIES – EAT THIS WELL, FILL THAT WELL

You heard it right! There is a company in Japan that makes cookies that enlarge your breasts when you eat one or two of them a day. The cookie is supposed to contain breast-enhancing herb, however it’s not proven that it increases your busts, let alone take it all the way up to DD (F Cup in Japan). But who cares, for just 290 Yen, that is less than $4, eating cookies and trying is much wiser than going straight through the surgeon’s knife!

Ever wondered why she has it and you don’t? Now you know just having good genes and consuming tons of water doesn’t necessarily grant you a pretty face. Some people go to extreme measures or turn to bizarre treatments to get the look they’ve always wanted!
