1. Have Fish Eat Dead Skin
Treatment: You place your feet in water with doctor fish, the species Garra rufa and Cyprinion macrostomum, swimming in it. Spa owners claim the fish eat away your dead skin. In actuality, though, the fish slough off the dead skin during their search for food.
The controversial treatment is touted as a temporary fix for people suffering from conditions like psoriasis and eczema. Originating in Turkey, the practice is banned in several places in North America, citing concerns over hygiene and the potential spread of diseases.
