Social media always has some weird and wonderful things in store for us. Most recently, we found out a simple picture of an egg crowned Kylie Jenner’s most-liked picture on Instagram, while videos of people trying to do things while blindfolded for the dangerous Birdbox challenge have attracted a lot of attention. Now there’s a new trend taking over our feeds that is pretty similar to Throwback Thursday and Flashback Friday. Thousands of people are taking part in the first challenge of 2019 by sharing pictures that show how they have transformed in the last decade. The #10YearChallenge, also known as the #HowHardDidAgingHitYou challenge and the #GlowUp challenge, has been picking up speed on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and celebrities are also getting in on the viral hashtag game.

The main message the challenge is sending out is that of self-love and making sure to let everyone know how you’ve glowed up. We’ve picked out some of the best side-by-side photos or single throwback shots that show how just how much, or how little, Hollywood stars and regional influencers have changed over the last 10 years or so. From Reece Witherspoon, Miley Cyrus and Jessica Biel to Anoud Bader and Nadya Hassan, get ready to be weirdly fascinated.
