Spotted: A British doctor has created acid-proof makeup to help women protect themselves from potential attacks. The makeup works like a type of “body armour” and is the first of its kind, according to its creator, Dr. Almas Ahmed.
“The beauty of it is that no-one knows you’re wearing it. It looks, feels, smells, just like regular make-up, yet it’s completely heat-proof and acid-proof,” Dr. Ahmed told inews. She has been working on the makeup for the past ten years. It is currently being tested and she plans to start selling it in 2020. There is a GoFundMe page to help finance the process.
