Ladies have been warned against the excessive use of make-up, as it exposes the skin to considerable amounts of germs and harmful toxins. This warning was given by a dermatologist,Dr Martins in Abuja.
Excessive use of make-up ,he said,could cause skin irritation, allergies and even skin cancer because of the chemical content.

The chemicals found in lipsticks, eye pencils, mascara, kajal, among others, could cause serious health problems.” He advised that women who apply make-up should clean their faces before going to bed, to remove all traces of chemicals from the skin.
 “It is very imperative to use suitable face washes, cleansers, toners and scrubs to wash off the make-up on the skin daily, especially at night, to avert any skin irritation or disease,’’ Martins said

In the same vein,a makeup consultant,Lady Pamela Adebowale has this to say...

You have to know your skin type to enable you to know the appropriate make-up to use for the best effect. Wrong application of make-up, rather than enhance beauty, could mar it.

Irene adds," Rub it,Flaunt it,Wash it.
