For a lot of us, our teenage years were a time of experimentation and self-discovery. Crazy hairstyles, bizarre fashion choices, and makeups that looked like something straight out of The Rocky Horror Picture Show – all of it seems pretty funny and ridiculous these days. Luckily, most of us have grew out of that phase, and can nowadays look back at our older selves and appreciate how far we’ve come since.

People over at the r/UglyDuckling subreddit are sharing pictures of their stunning glow ups, and they’re living proof that a little self-love and determination can go a long way. See their incredible journeys in the gallery below, and if you want more, make sure to check out our previous posts here, here, and here!
