Late one afternoon, after spending the day at the beach with my little cousin Yana, I went back to my Lola’s (grandmother’s) house. My Lola started screaming as soon as we walked through the door, and I could only understand parts of what was being said since she was speaking Bisaya, the local Filipino language.

You should feel comfortable with your surgeon and feel like they're working with you to address your insecurities rather than pointing out all of the features they personally would change.

"Ideally, you want to find a surgeon who will work with you to define your goals and provide you with realistic expectations for your cosmetic or reconstructive surgery," Dr. Graham Schwarz, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, told the Cleveland Clinic.

The dazzling Gen Z-targeted collection not only looks fabulous in any bathroom setup but includes some seriously innovative (and gentle) products, like a no-rinse stain remover.But I'm happy to report that I've been making incremental progress since my last cleaning a few months before all of New York City shut down in March 2020.
