Whale of A Time

India Today - - SNAPSHOTS - By Olina Ban­erji

If you’ve ever been trau­ma­tised by the killer whale in Jaws, there’s a good chance you’ll give this beauty treat­ment a skip. Ex­ported all the way from a ther­mal spring in Turkey, the new­est way to get a pedi­cure done is to let 150 carp “nib­ble” at your feet, eat­ing away the dead skin, mak­ing it smooth in the process. These ‘doc­tor fish’ suck away the dry skin with their tooth­less mouths as hu­man skin is an easy food source for them. It may be an ef­fec­tive way that leaves your feet squeaky clean, but it re­mains to be seen if In­di­ans have an ap­petite for the bizarre when it comes to beauty.
