ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - It’s the #dontjudgechallenge, in which teens post videos of themselves transforming from “ugly” to “beautiful” after showing off what they consider “ugly” features, including acne, missing teeth, and thick eyebrows.

A quick camera cover reveals the transformation without these features plus clear skin and makeup with the goal to encourage people to not judge one another by the way they look.

As popular as the challenge is, teens have also criticized it as a way for attractive teens to mock how people look naturally, without makeup or clear skin. In response, the #beautyinallchallenge has become popular, where teens are encouraged to share their natural imperfections and natural beauty with confidence.
