Okay gals, this might possibly be the weirdest beauty trick yet, but considering it comes from someone whose nickname is “The Body,” you might want to take it seriously.
Elle Macpherson has revealed that the most surprising thing she carries in her handbag is a urine tester kit to check her body’s acidity levels, stating that she “believe[s] that most ailments come from having an acidic body.”
While the strips sound odd themselves, we do know Elle is onto something. We’ve mentioned pH levels to you several times when talking about the benefits of drinking hot lemon water or apple cider vinegar in helping to keep the proper acid/alkaline balance in the body, so testing this on a regular basis is actually a pretty darn good idea.
Elle is also quoted as saying “I don’t worry about wrinkles. I tackle internal aging by nourishing my cells from the inside and the welcome by-product is looking and feeling good.” And this isn’t just talk, she’s the creator of an effective green smoothie supplement, Super Elixir, loved by celebs like Kate Moss.
Do a quick Google image search of Elle, and you’ll be adding Super Elixir and urine test strips to your beauty grocery list.
