I thought I would post my experience with trying Urine on my face for acne.
My skin type is very pale/light tone and sensitive. I have very dry skin as well. I also have unbalanced hormones which cause continual breakouts on mostly my chin area.
Frustrated with the products I have been using and the ones that I can't use due to sensitivity, I read up on using Urine to clear acne and decided to try it.
I am currently at a three week mark of using my first morning stream. My regime is:
In the morning: Washing my face with a mild cleansing cream for sensitive skin like: Nivea
Then applying my first morning urine, (that I collect in a sterile jar, and use throughout the day, with a soaked cotton pad) I leave this application on as long as I can. (Right now I have time off of work, so when I'm home I leave it on until the early afternoon.) Then when I take a shower clean my face gently again with my Nivea and put on my face moisturizer for the rest of the day.
Before going to bed I wash my face again with Nivea, then apply the Urine that I have saved from that morning once again on my skin and leave it on overnight. Then repeat the entire process the next day. (I do not put any moisturizer on at the same time as I have urine on.)
I have done this faithfully for three weeks now, not missing one day.
The first week that I started I did try "Old" urine for about four days. Honestly I didn't see a difference between the old stuff and the new. So I decided to stick with the fresh batch. I definitely prefer the new urine, mostly because the smell is easier to take.
When I apply new urine in the morning, I do find that the smell dissipates fairly quickly, however that same urine used at night before I go to bed doesn't and I can definitely smell it when I wake up.
My Results? Right away I noticed that the redness from the acne I had, was going down. Also the softness of my skin happened right away, but my acne did not clear up instantly in the first week. Also my skin wasn't dry, like it normally is.
At the second week mark, my face broke out something fierce! I had acne in places on my face that I NEVER got acne before. I was devastated, thinking what have I done, I've ruined my skin. Close to tears, frustrated I thought about stopping, but from the little information I could find on Urine Therapy a few people said..Stick it out..and that this would happen. So I kept going. Now at my third week, I am so terribly glad that I did keep going.
The massive breakout that I had took about four days to clear up..(UnHEARD of if I Had a reaction any other time, from any other product.. normally would take me weeks!)
Now I notice my pores are tighter, my skin is moisturized and yes.. my acne is clearing up better than ever before. I don't pop, pick or scratch, no matter what. Introducing any bacteria onto your skin I think is very, very important NOT to do.
The urine has brought out zits and brought them to a "head" and dried them out and they sluff off when I wash my face. Without any red marks left behind. This happens within days, far faster than it has ever done before.
I do recommend drinking the proper amount of water and eating the best you can. I'm not perfect and I certainly don't have a Vegan or Raw food only lifestyle and its still working for me.
But what you put in, you get out.
Most importantly...STICK WITH IT...give it a decient go, all skin types are different. What happens for one person in one week may take another a month to achieve.
I have been asking around about this with family and I found out that my grandparents and their friends used to do this for their children. It makes sense now that all of them had such beautiful skin.
The debate continues, for those who don't agree ...its ok..don't try it. But for those of you willing to take a bit of a weird risk, give it a go...I was skeptical too, NOW.. I'm sold.
If I have to do this for the rest of my life in some form or another.. to have nice skin, I'll do it.
I hope this helps! All the best!
