I need to start this post be saying that pee does not cure acne.
Vanessa Williams has admitted that she has let vanity get in the way of common sense.
The former beauty queen, who plays evil editor Wilhelmina Slater on Ugly Betty, revealed she once resorted to using urine on her face to get rid of acne.
“The weirdest thing I ever heard was to take your morning urine and put it on your acne,” she said at the March of Dimes beauty ball in New York, which she hosted.
I also ran into some info showing how you can possible get rid of acne using pee. Not sure how well this works, I have not got the guts to try it
Its been about three weeks since I started. The first two weeks, after rubbing fresh urine on my face, I would rinse it off with water after a few minutes.
I realized that the effect wasnt as strong after rinsing it off with water, so I stopped doing that the 3rd week. Now my skin is much softer and clearer. For the past few days, I have also stopped using soap or cleansers and I stopped wearing makeup and moisturizer on my face.
I also broke out a lot the first two weeks. The urine was breaking me out in places where I have pitted scars and I have several shallow scars that are about 8 months old, so I broke out on several of them. Now I just have a few whiteheads that go away in about 3-4 days so it isnt much of a problem anymore. The whiteheads are just the urine’s way of pulling out the toxins from my skin and flattening out the scars.
My skin looks so much more even toned and glowy. Except for the few whiteheads I have, it looks like I’m wearing a light layer of makeup; thats how much my skin has changed. My scars arent lightening as much as I hoped but they certainly are not as violently red. Overall my complexion looks much healthier.
My regimen (Morning and night):
1.Wash your hands with antibacterial soap
2. Splash face with warm water in the shower to open the pores (No soap!)
3. Pee in a cup catching the midstream urine and massage gently into the face (I massage it in a few times; pouring a little bit at a time in my hands). Do this for about 3 minutes. Longer the better.
Afterwards do not rinse your face with water or put soap on it.
After you get out of the shower, your skin will look more rosy and after 30 minutes, when you look it the mirror you will notice that the redness of your pimples and marks will have gone down a little.
Also, you may think not using soap is disgusting but urine is sterile and it gets rid of the dirt itself. Soap strips the natural oil and destroys your skins natural defenses.
Nightime (before bed) regimen
1)Pee in a cup (midstream urine)
2)Get some toilet paper and fold it so it is the size of your cheek. Put it in the urine and then on your cheek as a compress. I put it on like a face pack for about 10 minutes on my face and it usually brings the pimples to head overnight or the day after. It also gets rid of the itchinness and pain that is associated with cystic acne within a few minites.
3)Take it off before sleeping and do not rinse your face off.
The compresses are very effective. You can also use them several times a day and they speed up the healing.
Let me know how this works for you. I am not sure it will work for everyone…
Nowadays, Vanessa, who has been honest about her love affair with Botox, uses less dramatic procedures to reduce blemishes.
