Woman claims dog urine is the secret behind curing her acne

Some people go to extreme lengths to achieve the perfect look in the name of beauty. From extreme surgery jobs to "vampire facials", we thought we had heard of them all...

That was until one woman by the name of Lynn Lew showed off her bizarre beauty secret - dog urine.

But she doesn't apply it to her skin. She drinks it...

The woman claims that drinking her dog's urine has helped her clear her acne and give her skin a beautiful appearance.

"Many of you have asked me how I always look so good, how my makeup always looks so perfect, or how I always have this natural glow," she says in her video.

She explains her secret simply by placing a cup underneath her dog as he pees - then drinks the full cup on camera - right until the last drop.

 "Until I first drank my dog's pee, I was depressed, I was sad, and I had bad acne," she explains. "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."

Despite her claims, there have been no studies proving the health benefits of dog urine.

"It's a bizarre concept," Mr Zaki Almallah, a consultant urologist at BMI Priory Hospital in Birmingham told Marie Claire.

"The kidneys filter the blood and any excess fluid, and salts and minerals are expelled.

"The point of urination is to rid the body of excess. Why would you want to re-absorb that?"
