Tom Cruise has told friends that his skin has never looked better thanks to the expensive spa treatment based on nightingale poo, according to Now Magazine.
The treatment involves mixing poo from a nightingale with rice bran and water which is then applied as a face mask.
And a source told Now magazine: “Tom doesn’t go in for Botox or surgery but he does pay close attention to all the new natural treatments.
“He recently started experimenting with the nightingale poo facial after it was recommended by a Hollywood pal and the results have been fantastic.”
Tom Cruise, 49, who is married to 33-year-old actress Katie Holmes with whom he has a daughter, Suri, 6, doesn’t believe in plastic surgery and said this is a better alternative.
The source added: “Tom doesn’t see splashing out on the facials as him being vain or weird. In fact, he points out there are much wackier fads out there.”
Other celebrities believed to be fans of the poo treatment include David and Victoria Beckham, who used to be good friends with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
New York beautician Shizuka Bernstein said: “The nightingale poo acts as an exfoliant that brings out the dirt and adds shine.”
