If you thought that sperm facial and snail facial was the only bizarre thing you would hear of before you die, here's something that is beyond bizarre. An American woman recently claimed on social media that drinking her dog's urine helped her cure facial acne. She didn't stop there, in the 1 min 26-second video she went ahead to practically making her dog pee, collect it in a glass and eventually drink it.
She took the liberty to state that 'dog urine contains vitamin A, vitamin E, 10 grams of calcium and it’s also a potential cure for cancer.' and that 'Urotherapy was practised in ancient China, Rome, Greece, and Egypt but isn’t endorsed by health experts today as no study exists to prove health benefits of urine.' her post caption says, 'The pharmaceutical companies are keeping this secret out of the public eye.
They pay lobbyist to get politicians to make you buy expensive pain medicine and chemo. This is the secret to cure cancer, alleviate pain, and prevent the swelling of joins. If you dont have your own dog, just steal one from a neighbor. (sic.)'

This is not the first time some bizarre skincare trend has gone viral. We've seen Fire facial, Snail facial, Vampire facial, Bird poop facial, Bee venom facial, etc. earlier although this probably tops them all. It is sad that today the obsession of becoming viral on social media is making people run in the race of doing the most strange and bizarre activities possible to gain a few likes and comments.
It is strictly not advised to try such remedy without any professional health expert explicitly asking you do so. To bring more clarity, experts and studies have claimed that urination removes excess fluids and salts that our body doesn't need. It makes no sense drinking something our/animal's body doesn't retain. While drinking cow urine is practiced to fight certain health issues but there is no document to prove.
