Women Go to Great Lengths to Keep Their Skins Youthful

Women go to great lengths to keep their skins youthful 
When it comes to their looks, women go to great lengths to turn back the clock. But the latest fad requires neither a chama loan nor hours of queuing at the salon, and only contains one ingredient; urine! Yes, that ‘eew’ stuff.
If uropaths (practitioners of urine therapy) are to be believed, we have been pouring liquid gold down the drain. They say that urine not only keeps wrinkles at bay, but also treats pimples and wounds, and keeps your skin as soft as a baby’s bottom. Apparently, you are your own, er, fountain of youth.

This practice has its roots in parts of Asia where it has been practised for centuries.
The women on this bandwagon guard their urine jealously. While you are flushing yours down the loo, they are bottling theirs and storing it in a safe place for future use.

Storage not only ensures a constant supply of this beauty secret, but also ‘ages’ the urine, which is said to enhance its potency. Aged urine, usually stored in dark bottles for several days or even months, contains more concentrated levels of ammonia than fresh urine.
Ammonia is what gives urine a chemical smell, but also has a bleaching effect, so uropaths use aged urine on skin blemishes and to whiten teeth.

Old urine is also said to clear up acne and eczema, soften chapped lips, eliminate dandruff and promote the growth of soft, shiny hair. If you want an all-over glow, just use some of this potent stuff to massage your body.

Some people even bathe in it!

Fresh urine is used on more sensitive areas, for example, as eyedrops, to refresh the eyes. It is also used on the lips, and in the ears and nose, and as a therapeutic drink.
Those who can’t stand the taste of straight urine make a cocktail by adding fruit juice or citric acid.

For men who want in on this trend, urine is said to be an excellent shaving cream and after-shave, to give a clean, smooth shave.
It is also touted as soothing common aftershave effects, like itching, redness and soreness.
