A woman has taken the annoying phrase ‘you have to suffer to be beautiful’ to new lows after drinking her dog’s still-hot urine from a plastic cup.
This was reportedly a bid by Lynn Lew to cure her acne, and give her a ‘natural glow,’ despite scientific evidence of this being actually potentially harmful to the human body.
Disturbingly, Lynn also appears to believe dog urine could cure cancer. Which, as I’m sure I don’t need to add, it does not.
In gruesome footage which has since gone viral, the unusual beauty advisor can be heard saying:
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. Here’s my secret.
Apparently answering this burning question, the woman then proceeds to collect her dog’s pee, slurping it straight down like freshly squeezed lemonade on a sunny day.
The internet collectively gagged and it doesn’t currently look like this trend will catch on any time soon.
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.

However, thirsty Lynn was adamant this repulsive remedy had helped to cure her skin problems, claiming:
Until I first drank my dog’s pee, I was depressed, I was sad, and I had bad acne,
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.
Sharing the video on her Facebook page, Lynn also made the following bold conspiracy claims:

Certified holistic nutritionist, Joy McCarthy, told Allure:
Drinking dog or human urine, otherwise known as ‘urine therapy,’ has been around for hundreds of years and has been practiced as a health therapy in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome.
Urine is mostly made up of water, lots of urea, creatinine, various electrolytes, uric acid, trace proteins, and low levels of antibodies and enzymes.
My take on this is there are far better ways to get healthy than drinking dog urine.
For instance, drinking lemon and water to stimulate the gastric juices for better digestion or apple cider vinegar in water has been touted for everything from weight loss to detoxification effects.
Both of these health habits are far tastier and safer than dog urine. Well, actually, I can’t confirm that dog urine is not tasty.
McCarthy also explained how this practice could be dangerous, due to herbicides – from hormones, lawns and antibiotics – having been detected in dog urine.
I just saw a tweet about a woman drinking her dog's urine and I'm so disgusted and already fed up with today ?

Whether or not this ‘product’ can banish my blackheads – and I’d like to stress that it definitely cannot – I think I will just be sticking with a good old fashioned face mask from Boots ta…
