Beauty Myths Quiz

Bella Quiz: Beauty Fact or Myth?

Besides tips on how to eat right for beautiful skin, nails, and hair, dietitian Lisa Drayer's new book, The Beauty Diet, has wonderful recipes, too. Low-fat double-chocolate milkshake, fire-roasted tomato soup, and white bean "hummus"? Yes, please. Separately, of course.

Another great inclusion? Some common beauty myths are either confirmed or completely busted. Does chocolate actually cause acne? Can carrots improve your eyesight? You're about to find out.

I'm not sure if the white spots one is right... "If you notice white spots, also known as leukonychia, on your nails, they unlikely to have been caused by a vitamin or mineral deficiency." "Some of the common myths associated with white spots on fingernails claim they are the result of a calcium deficiency or eating too much mayonnaise." source:
