Women who had it all figured out during high school share honest pictures of their 'glow-downs'


Not everyone gets better with age! Women who think they’re already past their physical peak share their ‘glow DOWNS’ in a self-mocking social media challenge

  • Women have shared pictures of how changed since their younger years 
  • They shared the snaps as part of the Glow-Down Challenge to show effect of age 
  • Showed they were not as conventionally attractive as used to be but still happy 

Women who believe they’re already past their physical peak have shared before-and-after pictures of their so-called ‘glow-downs’. 

The Glow-Down challenge was created by Tik Tok user Gabrielle McDonald in April, who admitted she ‘peaked in high school’ and wanted to see other people who also thought looked nothing like their ‘hottest’ self anymore.   

A ‘glow-down,’ is the polar opposite of a ‘glow-up’,  where people shared how much more attractive they look or feel compared to their younger selves.  

Now people from across the world have been sharing their snaps online, with Bored Panda gathering the best pictures into an online gallery.
