Quiz: Beauty Tip or BS?

Think you know the difference between a beauty fact and myth? Put your knowledge to the test -- you'll be shocked to see what the real answers are

Do you have a hard time figuring out which beauty tips (you know, from the hundreds of tips you hear every day) are actually true? Your mom says that brushing your hair 100 times a day makes it shinier. Your best friend tells you to put toothpaste on that zit to make it go away faster. Your boyfriend tries to "instruct" you on the right way to shave your legs.

Well, if you're confused, you're not alone. We've all come across believable beauty facts that were actually false, as well as weird beauty myths that turned out to be true. So I thought I'd put together a compilation of facts and myths, and then have you guess which ones are real. Fun, right?

I found some very interesting tips, many from the book "Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm?" written by the creators of TheBeautyBrains.com. From the pros and cons of pore strips, to whether hair extensions make your hair fall out, now you can get to the bottom of some serious beauty questions with the help of a few experts along the way.

And you might have a hard time guessing which ones are true and which ones are false, but don't worry -- we'll tell you how many you got right in the end. We'll even tell you the correct answers and explanations for all of them (you'll be shocked to see what you guessed wrong). Just answer the first question below to start taking the quiz.

Without further ado ... will the real beauty tip please stand up?
