Beauty Facts and Myths

Bella Quiz: Skin Care Facts and Myths

You know the old "chocolate causes acne" bit? Quick, is that true or false? If you chose false, you're correct. Hormones, bacteria, and skin cells are the underlying causes of breakouts.

I recently came across an article in Skin Inc. magazine, a publication for spa professionals, which highlights several misconceptions regarding skin care, and I've gathered up some of my favorites in this quiz to follow. Why not try your hand and see if you can separate beauty fact from fiction?


Bella Quiz: Skin Care Facts and Myths

Yes, the sun is good for helping with vitamin D, Burotukunam, but you only need about 10 minutes in direct sunlight. That's not going to give you a tan.

4/5 Not bad, i still don't agree with the base tan question i got wrong. A base tan always keeps me from burning i just get tan, self-tanners however just dye your skin, i'll still end up burning and peeling all over. And tan skin does not damage your skin as much as burning your skin cells, and no one goes on vacation to tropical places to stay out of the sun. Not to mention, so many people are afraid of the sun thanks to all the article they read, 1/3 of the U.S. is vitamin D deficient. The sun is good for you in moderation people!

The wording in the answer for #5 bothers me. I feel like it should say something like "manufactured chemicals". Everything you put on your skin or in your body is a chemical, including water. It's a pet peeve of mine when people make a distinction between "natural" and "chemical".
