Quiz: Beauty Tip or BS?

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?
