Unless you live under a social media rock, it’s likely you have noticed a recent rush of before-and-after photos posted by all of your friends, family and social media influencers you follow. That's because there’s a new viral challenge spreading across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook called the 10-year challenge, where people are posting side-by-side images of themselves from the past 10 years and the present. And, it's not surprising that some celebrities haven’t really aged one bit.
Jessica Biel was one of the many famous faces who jumped on the bandwagon, and it was seriously impossible to spot any signs of aging in her “after” photo. “What a difference ten years can make! Although I do still have a lot of ❤ for my tan lines, hoops and blonde days... #10YearChallenge,” she captioned the image.
Fuller House star Lori Loughlin shared photos from 2009 and 2018, in which she also looked exactly the same.
Challenged by her costar Loughlin, Candace Cameron Bure also posted some snaps—again, looking forever young.
“I jumped on the bandwagon. 2009 vs 2019 #agechallenge,” she wrote.
“When time and hair product are on your side,” Ryan Seacrest hilariously wrote about his ageless transformation, adding a photo from his childhood where he was sporting braces and huge glasses.
“This challenge has shown me that I simply have an old man’s face,” wrote Kevin Hart, adding the hashtags #FML and #iHateThisChallenge. “I’m going to go sit my old face *ss down somewhere.”
While good genes, healthy living and cosmetic procedures may attribute to some of the reasons people are failing to age in 2019, one beauty blogger points out that it could have to do with camera and PhotoShop magic.
“Dear Everyone, Stop posting those aging comparison photos,” Megan O’Brien wrote in a snarky Facebook post. “I hate to break it to you, but we haven’t gotten any better. The filters have. Thank you, Real life.”
Even if this is the case, we are totally on board with these latest viral challenge—as well as totally grateful that it doesn't involve anything dangerous, like spraying aerosol deodorant on each other's skin until it burns or, uh, snorting condoms.
