Shrimp skin deep pore clensing

Fish do it so why don't we.

There are many weird and wacky beauty treatments that have at best dubious benefits for the human body, this is just another.

Take a large tub of sea water fill it with one of the many species of small shrimp that are scavengers or cleaners, (sombody more familliar with crustaceans can suggest the most sutible species.) Jump in and let the little prawn cutlets do the rest. They will do their best to pick off and eat all the dead tissue and dirt on your body.

This sounds disgusting and weird because it is, its just the kind of thing that the ultra wealthy and the mega famous pay big bucks for. I'd say that $3000 dollars US an hour sounds like a reasonable fee, ofcourse this puts this kind of treatment well out of my price range but why the hell would I want shrimps eating me anyway?

       I was swimming in the Wye once (why? I hear you think). I stopped for a breather, enjoying the tranquility. I could feel the weed against my skin, brushing past and..er..nibbling? I looked down and there were about fifty little fish gathered around, gently snacking off my (then) toned and rippled abdomen.

       1. Let the shrimp clean your skin.   

       2. Get out of the bath (This step is IMPORTANT).   

       3. Boil the water.   

       4. Eat the shrimp !   

       Recycling at its best. Indirect self cannibalism ?

       Instead of shrimp, I want those bottom-feeder aquarium fish...
