It comes after Deborah last year praised a make-up artist for insisting she get tested for skin cancer after noticing a blemish on her skin.

The entrepreneur went for a check-up with her doctor and was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in 2015, which is the second most common form of skin cancer.
