16 Beauty Myths -- Busted!

Beauty info gets passed through the generations but is some of it urban legend? See if you can determine what's myth and what's not.

Take the quiz

Okay, things like cat litter for clay masks, hemorroid creme for puffy eyes, or vaseline as a moisturizer? What beauty myth do you use or have tried?

One for sure that does work and is worth trying is two different types of at home exfoliators:

1. For soft hands: sugar and glycerin. The glycerin is something you need to buy at a drugstore, like Walgreens or CVS and it will be by the face cremes. Mix a bit together, enough to make a paste and wash your hands with it. Soft!

2. For exfoliation and revealing of new skin on dry chappy hands: lemon juice, olive oil, and salt! The fruit acid pulls off dead skin with the salt and the olive oil moisturizes. Wash your hands and enjoy the smoothness!
