She uses "urine therapy" to help keep her skin looking young and refreshed.

In order to stay beautiful, one Maryland woman, Ruby Karyo, says she uses "urine therapy," which consists of her drinking her pee twice a week and rubbing it on her face every morning. She first heard of this "beauty" routine from her father at the age of 19 and has been using it for the past 11 years (*gags*). 

In order to use the urine correctly, she rubs it into her face like a moisturizer, leaving it on her face anywhere from two hours up to a full day. She collects her urine by peeing into a travel size spray bottle and then sprays it into her hands before rubbing it on her face.

She also drinks half a liter of pee twice a week.

Ruby claims that urine therapy has certain benefits, such as healing scars and pimples, reducing your high blood pressure and cholesterol, and increasing the glow of one's skin. In a video by The Sun, she shows herself rubbing the urine with a sponge on her visible pimples and then showing the results the next morning. 

In the video, there is some obvious overnight improvement, with one row of pimples now gone and one reduced. So while that may be proof that the urine therapy does work, there are other methods that could be used to get the same results, right?

Since doing the treatment, she has managed to convince her boyfriend, 56, to use urine therapy to help stop his hair loss and even grow his hair back. They claim that after just a couple months, he has already seen some hair growth. (We don't know about that, buddy ... is having a full head of hair really worth putting pee on your scalp??)

This is an accurate description of how we currently feel:

Although her morning routine is utterly disgusting, she is doing this to avoid all the chemicals put into store-bought products. While I understand this reasoning, I'd prefer making a homemade avocado mask, myself.

I. Just. Can't. 

How disgusted are you by Ruby's routine? Have you used urine therapy before? Is it worth it? Tell us in the comments!
