Here Is Why You Should Start Peeing In The Shower
1. Peeing in the shower
If someone admits to peeing in the shower, the best case scenario usually is that he gets a few strange looks. But really, peeing in the shower is not only completely harmless, it saves a ton of water. Proponents of this practice estimate that many of us use up to 15 liters of water every day just to flush the toilet. If you multiply that by our population and the days in the year, that is literally tons of fresh water every year that is more or less wasted. Not only is that expensive in the long run, it is bad for the environment, too! Of course, there are some ecological low-flow toilets out there, but not even close to enough to make a dent on water usage. Since most people shower almost every day, it makes sense to tinkle and wash simultaneously. And there is a double environmentally-friendly bonus: You’ll use less toilet paper and save trees!
3. Skin care
Urine is also beneficial to battling skin issues like psoriasis or eczema. Urea is an active ingredient in a lot of skin creams and ointments. Urea is a compound most concentrated mid-stream in your early morning pee, i.e. about 5 seconds in. You can rub fresh urine in your skin and/or use compresses – it’s best to let it sit for a few hours before cleansing your skin again.
Applying urine to the skin is usually odorless, but maybe give this one a go sometime when you aren’t among a large group of people. The urea promotes acid-base homeostasis in the skin and works to soothe dry, brittle skin.
Urine compression is also helpful to fight against annoying fungal infections, such as those on your feet. It works best if you rub urine into the fungal area and let it soak in overnight under a compress. After a few weeks, your symptoms should greatly improve. But again: for serious fungi you should always visit your doctor who should be able to tell you a lot about your fungus and your urine!
