Today is my 37th day on Urine Therapy.
Urine therapy can be used for many skin issues. The process is the same for many conditions. People have used urine therapy to treat acne, eczema, dry scalp and hair loss and some sores.
For specific spot areas like acne or a particular problem blemish, use your finger to dip the urine from the container to the area and then massage it into the skin. Or, use a cotton ball or swab to dab the liquid from the container on to your skin.
For best results, allow the urine to dry on your skin as you massage it in. The odor should fade as it dries. You can then follow the urine therapy by using your regular lotion or makeup. If you prefer, however, you can rinse the urine off before moving on with the rest of your routine.
For larger problem areas or areas that are sore or sensitive to the touch like large acne outbreaks, eczema patches or large scars or blemishes, apply a compress. With a large urine sample, soak a small washcloth or rag in the urine, then lay the rag on the area. Leave it there for up to ten minutes, remove and rinse or dry off.
Use an extended compress for very difficult problems. Apply the urine with a cotton ball or swab until the area is very wet. Then, tape a clean, dry cloth to the area and leave for several hours.
Repeat this process twice a day and watch your progress. If you have a particularly troublesome spot, you can apply urine therapy as often as you urinate. If you are not where you can catch a full sample, try catching just a few drops with your finger for a quick application.
For all over skin care, or large problem areas, put urine in a clean spray bottle and spray it onto your skin, then let it dry there like a body mist. Or add a few drops to your regular lotion so that you put some on each time you moisturize.
A regular urine sample should begin to show results in a few days. However, if you feel that you want to try a stronger ointment you can make one. Collect a sample and store it in a dark container in a cool, dark place for between four to eight days. This sample will smell much stronger, so you may want to rinse or wash it off before continuing with the rest of your routine.
Because urine is sterile to the touch, most of the concerns about using urine as therapy come from the idea of people drinking urine. The substance urea can be dangerous if it enters the bloodstream. Doctors seem to agree that it is most likely harmless for most people, in small quantities.
Some holistic doctors think that urea has antibacterial and antifungal properties, which makes it a strong candidate for use as a skin therapy. However, Western medicine has been slow to come around to urine therapy and most of the "proof" for its effectiveness comes from anecdotal evidence.
Users should take care to avoid using urine on open sores. And as with any product put on the skin, watch for side effects. Potential side effects of using urine on the skin may include a rash.
