Ayopo revealed that the harmful effects of makeup were not limited to skin related issues, but also varieties of other health challenges.

Her words:

“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.”

” 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,”.

“There are plenty of face washes, cleansers and scrubs available in the market to choose from.”

She urged women to choose natural skin care products like tomatoes, honey, eggs and cucumber.

    This massive discoloration and disfigurement is not due to make up. It is the aftermath of long-term skin bleaching with harsh chemicals. Black is beautiful. Why turn yourselves into chameleon or multi-color like rainbow? Even the rainbow is beautiful. When they begin to show green color like leaf, that is the sign of skin cancer. I don’t know how men climb on women like that, with the horrible smell on their bodies. Women, STOP bleaching your skin, it’s an open invitation to skin cancer. Beware.
