There's something fishy about this foot treatment
Here at beautyheaven we’re all for experimenting with bizarre beauty treatments, but would you fancy hundreds of fish nibbling on your feet?
News.com.au revealed today that a beauty chain has applied to the Federal Government to import the doctor fish, with a plan to offer the fishy pedicure (which is popular in UK, US and parts of Asia such as Bali and Thailand) to Australians.
Considered a natural treatment for conditions like psoriasis and eczema, the pedicure involves clients immersing their bare feet in a tank full of fish that then obligingly nibble the dead skin off their heels.
While the unusual treatment has been shown to result in soft, smooth soles, we’re still a bit unsure about whether we’d try it.
