The pandemic may have turned the world upside down but Inka Magnaye learned to roll with the punches early on. It was during the lockdown when she launched her career as a content creator with the viral video of her and her mother doing the in-flight announcement of a local airline.
She also discovered a few hobbies while spending time indoors. Magnaye says, “in the beginning, I spent my days cooking. I looked around for new recipes to try. Another skill I picked up was putting makeup on. It’s such a useful skill, especially in my current line of work.”
The voice artist and creator may be busy but she still looks out for her health, taking a holistic approach to take care of herself. For her mental health, she takes the time to unplug and sit in silence, or do something she likes.
“The world is different now, so much more stressful, and to be able to navigate our day-to-day as best we can, we need to always take care of ourselves first and foremost,” Magnaye reveals.
She is motivated to be physically healthy because of her polycystic ovary syndrome and asthma.
Magnaye says, “I need to make sure that my body is as strong as possible. That, and discipline to make sure I eat right and keep being active. I work out more now. I take it more seriously, I have better discipline, and I eat much healthier compared to before.”
Healthy teeth and gums
Oral care and hygiene are important for a voice artist and content creator. According to her, “I need to make sure that my mouth is a well-oiled machine. That means a healthy set of teeth and gums. Also, as a content creator, a bright smile is always an asset!”
Her work has paid off, as her dentist said that her teeth and gums are healthy. She credits a strict oral routine for this.
Magnaye brushes and flosses regularly. She also trusts Sensodyne, the most recommended toothpaste by dentists. For her, the ideal oral care product is something that offers a comfortable mouthfeel and long-lasting protection and freshness.
“I especially need protection from tooth sensitivity. Making videos or hosting events will be much trickier with painful teeth. This is why I always use Sensodyne,” she says.
When she started using Sensodyne, Magnaye reports that her “mouth feels cleaner, fresher, and healthier.”
She counts the Sensodyne Repair and Protect as her favorite variant. This toothpaste contains stannous fluoride, which builds a repairing layer over vulnerable areas in the teeth and protects it from pain. Aside from its lasting relief from sensitivity, Sensodyne Repair and Protect also offers cavity protection.
To further share how Sensodyne helps her as a voice talent and content creator, she went live on Shopee with dentist Dr. Stephen Almonte. He has been practicing his craft for more than 20 years and has served as president of the Philippine Dental Association.
Speaking about her discussion with Dr. Almonte, Magnaye shares, “there are so many myths about oral care that are floating around by word of mouth. It’s always the safest bet to go see your dentist and consult the experts.”
She adds, “I think the products people use can definitely make an impact on their daily lives, especially something like toothpaste. Now I can enjoy anything without even giving it a second thought. It’s liberating.”
It even helps her be more confident and comfortable, saying, “I don’t have to think twice about flashing people a smile.”
For her followers who also want to improve their oral health, Magnaye has one piece of advice: “Sensodyne has worked for me and it will work for you, too!”
