This woman says drinking her dog's urine has cleared up her acne

She also said that it can cure cancer, but no evidence backs up this theory

Beauty is something we go to great lengths to achieve, but would you go as far as drinking dog urine?

That's what blogger Lynn Lew from America has done, saying it has cleared up her acne and given her a "glow".

In a video where she details her theory for why this has worked for her, she says: "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."

Happy to share her beauty secret, she then collects a cup full of urine from her dog and drinks it.

And there's more.

After seeming to finish the cup, she continues: "Until I first drank my dog's pee, I was depressed, I was sad, and I had bad acne."

Fair enough, but she then offers some questionable facts about dog urine and its properties, saying: "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."

While "urotherapy" used to be practised in ancient China, Rome, Greece and Egypt, it's not a practise which health experts today endorse, reports CambridgeshireLive.

Not only that, but no studies have provided sufficient evidence of its efficacy or health benefits.

"It's a bizarre concept," Mr Zaki Almallah, consultant urologist at BMI Priory Hospital in Birmingham tells 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?’ he asks, pertinently.

"The only time it's medically recommended to ingest urine is if you're stranded without food or water for many days."

So whether it's your own or your dog's, it's perhaps best to keep urine off the menu.
