Recently, I was reading online about people who use urine for skincare purposes. Yes. . . URINE! There were a number of people who swore by it to heal their eczema, acne, even their skin tone and alleviate other skin conditions.
From what I read, the urine is diluted with water, placed on the skin for a period of time and then rinsed off. Some people are even drinking the urine solution to help with their skin conditions and various ailments. It is believed that urine contains antibodies and has great detoxifying agents for the skin and body.
I have heard of women putting a baby's wet diaper on their face in hopes of getting smooth, glowing skin but I have never heard of someone actually ingesting it?! Frankly, it makes my stomach churn to even think about it. This is taking natural remedies to a WHOLE new level!
I doubt that I will be incorporating urine into my skincare routine but, it does slightly interest me to find out if this really works.
What do you think about urine therapy? Have you/ would you try it?
