The expert said using excessive makeup to cover skin problems like pimples, allergies, patches, scars, dark circles, boils and wrinkles are dangerous, adding that it could lead to skin irritation, allergies, skin cancer, and infertility.

She said, “Lipsticks, Kajal sticks and eye-shadows, for example, are known to contain lead, carcinogen and neurotoxin that can affect the nervous system adversely, leading to high blood-pressure, allergies, behavioural abnormalities and even decreased rates of fertility.”

The dermatologist advised women to embrace safe beauty routine such as natural facial treatments like cucumber, tomatoes, honey and eggs.
