There are plenty of health effects. Most of the common effects can be seen from the skin itself. As soon as those effects start occurring on the skin, things began appearing on other places. So such substandard chemicals can have effect on other places within the body. Some of the cosmetics also create itching. This leads to more scratches and also in some cases wounds which can't be easily cured. So make sure that you're not taking any such medicines. Also you're not using them on your body at all.

Concurrent use of substandard cosmetics may cause serious consequences. Initially skin rashes, itching and burning sensation may occur. Some individuals may experience phototoxicity. The chemicals applied on skin when exposed to sunlight may cause blistering and allergic reactions. In most cases the cosmetics will cause a warm sensation in facial parts.
