Hey Lady! That heavy makeup could lead to cancer says a dermatologist


  • Mrs Ayopo Adeyemi, a dermatologist recently spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos. She said excessive use of make up leads to skin irritation, allergies and cancer. According to her;
  1. "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.”
  2. “Using too much product on your skin will eventually further the wrinkles, lines and spots you are attempting to conceal, and ultimately make you look older than you actually are,” 
  3. As a preventive method,  proper cleaning regime to remove all traces of chemicals from the skin should be followed.“There are plenty of face washes, cleansers and scrubs available in the market to choose from.”
  • She further advised women to use natural facial treatments like cucumber, tomatoes, honey, eggs instead of using unsafe products.
Our take on the matter
  • Makeup or no makeup if you are fine you are fine. Simple.
  • With the rate of makeup and facial treatment, advising ladies to use cucumber, tomatoes, honey and eggs will instantly shoot up the prices of these commodities. 'Biko'.
  • At this rate, there is nothing that won't lead to cancer eventually.
