After Jacky Matubia, Switch TV presenter and former Tahidi High actress, confessed she owes her flawless skin to applying morning pee/urine on her face every morning, many comments of confusion came in and I wondered what benefits she gains from this, does the pee smell all day long since it’s concentrated in the morning? I looked it up, and it’s actually heaven sent.
For those ladies who have been struggling with acne and eczema, struggle no more, below, I list the benefits of using urine as skin therapy;
According to experts, urine can cure all manner of skin conditions such as acne, eczema, spots, athletes foot. When urine is applied topically to the skin, it can help decrease the symptoms of psoriasis and even fungal infections.
Urotherapy, is the term used to describe therapy by urine, it is actually a thing ladies. This therapy is actually used to cure everything from cystic acne to gut problems and wrinkles. It requires you to either put your liquid gold on your skin, or drink it….. I know.
Urine contains nutrients and minerals that help in skin moisturizing. The urea in pee is very beneficial in clearing your skin among other benefits.
Though many would argue that urine removes toxins from the body, and applying it or drinking it is only putting it back in the body, others who have used this method of therapy have nothing but praises for it. They have noticed a lot of improvement on their skin.
Studies have gone further to show that urotherapy is beneficial to cancer patients. Cancer cells release various antigens, some of which appear in the urine. Oral autourotherapy is suggested as a new treatment modality for cancer patients. It will provide the intestinal lymphatic system with the many tumor antigens against which antibodies may be produced. These antibodies may be pierced through the blood stream and attack the tumor and its cells.
Wow, who knew waste could be turned into gold?
