Woman Drinks Dog Urine To Clear Acne, But Does It Really Work?

A viral video is gaining clicks after it showed a woman drinking what she said was a dog urine, which she claimed had helped her clear her acne.
The woman's move is disgusting to some, while others found it funny. At this time and age of skincare routines and products left and right, beauty drinks aren't actually new to the ears. The woman's drink, supposedly a dog urine, helped her clear up her acne, or at least it's what she says.
Some skincare products are expensive, and some people are looking for ways to find cheaper alternatives, while others find comfort in trusting the natural. This, in particular, is what a woman did as she opted to drink the ever-natural dog urine to combat irritating acne.
The video started with the woman in a park with her pet. She then addressed her fans who she said kept asking her how she looks good and flawless. She was seen holding a clear cup, whose purpose might probably be obvious by now.
"Here's my secret," she said.
Then, things took a horrifying turn as she took her dog to a tree. The canine started peeing, unknowing of what its master is about to do. Of course, the woman was there to catch everything. To prove that there was no edit that happened, she immediately drank the dog urine down to the last drop.
Hold the judgements down. This woman knows her dog urine all too well, or at least what she seemed to be. She went on to explain the "good stuff" found on it, saying that prior to her revolutionary deed, she used to be depressed and had acnes.
"Dog pee also has vitamin A in it, vitamin E in it, and it has 10 grams of calcium, and it's also proven to help cure cancer," the woman explained.
But this "wonder drink" apparently has been on the horizon for too long, so basically it isn't new, though to some it looked wrong. The perks? It's free if one has a dog. Nutritionist Joy McCarthy said that urine therapy, or drinking dog or human pee, has long been practiced in ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt for health therapy.
"Urine is mostly made up of water, lots of urea, creatinine, various electrolytes, uric acid, trace proteins, and low levels of antibodies and enzymes," she said.
However, she stressed that there are plenty of ways to achieving a healthier body than drinking dog urine, one that is tastier or is more conventional. McCarthy even pointed out that there is a health concern as well, as the dog's pee may contain herbicide from lawns and parks.
