    Men Are Sharing Their "Glow-Downs" From A Year Ago In A New TikTok Challenge

    Live for these.

    I'm sure you guys know the terms "glow-up" and "glow-down." It's exactly what it sounds like — a glow-up is when someone transforms for the "better," whatever that may be, and a "glow-down" is the opposite.

    Back in April, women on TikTok shared their quarantine glow-downs, and it was too, too real.

    And recently, TikTok user @rickyv shared a hilarious video of his "1 year glo-down."

    "OK, so everybody on TikTok loves to talk about 'glow-ups.' Let's talk about my glow-down," Ricky said. "So, this was a year ago, looking fucking delicious, looking like a little snack."

    It inspired other people to use the sound of him talking and show their own glow-downs. Keep in mind, we still think they look amaze!
