20 People Who Prove That Women Only Get More Beautiful With the Passing Years

In 1950, the average life expectancy was only 46 years old. And in 2019, it already jumped to 72.5 years old. Needless to say that during this time the perception of age has radically changed, and being 30-40 years old in the modern world is considered to be in the prime of your life.

We at Bright Side are sure that passing years can’t harm real beauty, but they can easily uncover it. And here are the women who look much better now than they did in their youth.

“Thanks to an acne treatment and a 90 lb weight loss!”

“When I was 23, I ended a toxic relationship and found out that other people thought I was cute and adorable. Plus, I lost 15 lbs and gained confidence.”

“Me at the age of 15 and at the age of 30”

“Me, age 15 in the back seat of the rental car on vacation. Greasy hair, glasses, braces, awkward thumbs up, blasting Numb on my iPod Shuffle, dateless wonder!”

“When I was 15, I was shy and I was being bullied at school. Now I’m 33, and I’m spending my honeymoon with an amazing man.”

“22 and 33 years old. I learned to dye my eyebrows and changed my hairstyle”

“I had this hairstyle even before it was fashionable. Pay attention — this is what real style means.”

“I stopped being vegan, got my hormones under control, went through a breakup, and went to therapy.”

“Seriously, this is my worst photo. I was in middle school then.”

“18 and 35 years old. At school, I wasn’t in my best shape.”

“Me at the age of 16 and 29. It seems I was too confident back then.”

“23 and 33 years old. It took me 30 years to finally become beautiful.”

“Me at the age of 18 and 30. I lost weight, learned how to beautify myself, and gained lots of confidence.”

“21-38... The golden years”

“I really thought I was one of the popular kids at school with this greasy hair and my father’s T-shirt.”

“It took me 10 years to learn how to smile and do my hair.”

“2013-2020. I am honestly astonished at the difference in myself.”

“21 and 35 years old. My beauty bloomed with age.”

“17 and 34 years old. I am twice as old, but now I take care of my skin and have a suitable hairstyle.”

“Surprisingly, a guy I was in love with back then wasn’t impressed by my hair and makeup. Now, I also cringe when I look at old photos.”

Are you afraid to age or have you learned to turn it in your favor?
