There were several facial creams on the market that claimed to protect your skin as well as get rid of blemishes. Powders during this day in age often included lead powder — which happens to be a very white substance.

The lead was absorbed through the skin, causing quite a few cases of lead poisoning. Blushes, lipsticks, and eyeshadows often contained mercury, which led to mercury poisoning. Another popular product of the time was belladonna eye drops.
