Redditors Share Their Before-After Puberty Photos

Do you remember how horrible you looked when you were young? That ‘ugly duckling phase’ when you had acne and braces, the phase that you want to erase in everyone’s memory, but it somehow exists!

Do you remember how horrible you looked when you were young? That ‘ugly duckling phase’ when you had acne and braces, the phase that you want to erase in everyone’s memory, but it somehow exists!

Well, the only good thing about this terrible memory is that it not just happened to us, it actually happened to everyone else who grew up too. Each and every one of us have gone through that, so instead of hiding your pictures and trying to forget about it… why not share them and have a laugh about it?

Probably Redditor Lilyrose1024 was thinking the same while posting his (self.AskReddit) question: People of Reddit with "Ugly Duckling Syndrome:" What are your best before and after puberty photos?

The response to this question is pretty impressive. People have actually shared their before and after photos. And believe it or not, most of the transformations are seriously quite impressive!

Check out what some Redditors had to share:

I'm a little late to this party, but here's my contribution

I had to wear headgear at night/braces/other dental things because my teeth were so bad, and I'm pretty sure I had a moustache at the time this picture was taken:

And here's a recent one:

I was always the "ugly" friend and never had guys like me until years after high school. I had cystic acne since age 13 (not shown in younger pic during 8th grade) and was bullied immensely in high school.

Now, at age 24, my skin has cleared up after a decade long battle and I'm still not used to the attention. Deep down, I still see myself as the pimply 13 yr old.

So, all you guys out there, posting pictures… you should actually be thankful to Lilyrose1024, for making you feel good about yourself!

 Just look at all the appreciation and acknowledgment these guys are getting for how they look now. Don’t they simple look awesome? Well, if you aren’t surprised then you must surely go and consult a doctor! We seriously think God has been really kind to them and these ugly ducklings have definitely transformed into hunks and divas!
