4. The Bird Poo Facial

Oh yeah — you read that right. What started back in 17th-century Japan still happens today. They aren't just any old droppings though — they're from a special bird on a special island off Japan named Kyushu. Maybe the rarity is what makes this OK... Maybe?

...and Rubbing It Over Your Face Treatment

A spotless complexion was very important back in the Middle Ages, so much so that they went around licking and rubbing rocks on their faces. Does it lose its effectiveness if you clean it first?

7. Radium

Oh, what exactly is radium? Radium is a radioactive metal used in radiation, and it really hit its stride in the early 1900s when everyone started putting it in everything. Luckily, that quickly ended around the 1920s.

9. The Baby Food Facial

These facials are great because you feed it to your kid and let them throw it on your face in the application process. Tackling DIY parenting and beauty at the same time.

11. The Oxygen Mask

You breathe in oxygen to live, so why not pump it directly onto your face to stay young and beautiful? The results only last approximately seven days, though — but you're not busy, right? Add this standing appointment every Monday.

12. The Kitty Litter Facial

WARNING: This is not a reason to go put your cat's kitty litter on your face. Please sit back down and continue reading.

This was most likely created by some poor fashionista who realized the only real ingredient in all-natural kitty litter is bentonite, which is used in a lot of fancy clay facials at fancy clay salons.
