Please give me some hope.

I’ve always been considered very pretty but when I hit 15 I don’t know what happened! My hair got dry and frizzed up, I put on nearly 2 stone and got spots. I’m nearly 16 and did not expect this.

Did any of you ‘blossom’ after going through an ugly phase and If so when?

My mother blossomed unbelievably when she was 17.

16-17. I was very quiet throughout school, overweight, spotty, didn't wear make-up. Didn't think I'd ever get a boyfriend. Had absolutely zero confidence. Went on a trip to Florida, started wearing shorts, make-up, felt good about myself. Went on the 5:2 diet a while afterwards and lost 2 stone. I'm a much different person now.

My mum always told me I would "blossom" as well but I didn't believe her. She was right lol.

It does take a bit of effort, though. It's not like you wake up one morning and suddenly feel great.

Before answering your question, I’d like to just mention that, everyone’s different <3 Don’t expect your body to develop exactly how other bodies did. Every body is special, which is one of the many things that makes humans, like other creatures, so fascinating. Each day your heart beats thousands upon thousands of times, your lungs breathe, your blood flows, your eyes see, your skin touches. Your body does so much just to keep you alive — it is so very precious. So don’t, even for a moment, think that it is lesser than any other body.


I always say, look after your creature (body). Be kind to yourself; look after yourself.


Acne is not permanent, neither is dry hair ^^ I’m sure you’ll find remedies. Some people use coconut oil to moisturise their hair, some people use salicylic acid on their skin for pimples, idk, there’s lots of things out there. Some things will work for you, other may not.


What I’m trying to say is, don’t worry too much. This is just part of the process of you, growing into you. Look after yourself; give your body time; and appreciate it for what it does for you <3

Dunno about blossoming as such. But I started feeling slightly more confident in my looks between 16 and 19, I certainly started getting a lot more attention etc then.

I'm 29 and blossomed at 22. Seriously. I was hugely fat as a teen with bad skin, then I lost a load of weight starting at age 20, went on the pill which cleared up my skin, and developed a new confidence.

At 14 I was everything a guy's mom would forbid him to even see me lmao, but I started blossoming I guess! still on my way though, I'm currently 18 , sadly already had one ex-boyfriend as we both ended up having to focus on studies, but our relationship is still pretty great and either way, I'm still developing, got my weight down, my skin is glowier, healthier skin, mindset, better hair, more happiness!

Blossoming isn't really how you look outside on the outside, I believe its more to a character development as time passes, you mature, you learn, etc etc so please don't just focus on outer beauty <3 You're already beautiful for who you are and who you've become!

I'm 21 and I'm just getting over the rough hormonal patch I hit when I was 16-17 and diagnosed with PCOS. So who knows?

I would say that I blossomed when I was around 18, now nearly 24, but from what I am told I am still maintaining my looks, figure and wit lol.

From the age of 13 to 16 I was a mess. I was very scrawny, had no 'curves' and plenty of acne. I didn't hate how I looked, but I can't say I enjoyed looking in the mirror! Now I'm 17 turning 18 and I'm starting to grow into myself a bit more. I'd have to say my skin clearing up has given me more confidence and self-worth, but my more positive mind-set now has also helped me for sure. Hopefully I still have a bit more 'glowing-up' to go, but it's only just started now.

Hi
Genuinely you can still blossom yet as there's still time on your side as you are young yet, don't worry as it's part of pubicy as your body still developing.
Spots are part of this process as you get older the body changes all the time as the pores get blocked so causes spots okay.

Everybody develops at different age as what your mum had at 17 doesn't mean you'll be same at that age as could be later .
Don't worry about it yet hunni and forget what everybody tells you as when time comes you'll blossom out okay.
Be happy with what you got at the present moment ok as you don't wish to have big breasts like me as I'm exploded when I was about 18 / 19 and I am happy with them dispite being big .
