Point of Divergence ... One of the most toxic things in the world during ancient times was the cosmetics that were used by women to put on their face. For example, white lead was used to whiten the face, giving someone the appearance of youth, but also would being eating away at their skin, leaving scars and leading to other effects such as hair loss, blindness, and even hastened death. One fan of white lead makeup and other toxic cosmetics was Queen Elizabeth the I. She was never seen at court as she got older without caking on layers of white lead makeup, which while giving her the youthful appearance of the Virgin Queen, also was hastening her end and damaging her features. Lets just say one of her courtiers cooked up some non toxic make ups that gave the same color and vibrance as the toxic ones, and Elizabeth begins using them. Does this inspire other women of court to do the same, and would this have helped Elizabeth's health in anyway to have had a longer reign?
