There’s no escaping the fact that when you get your eight hours of kip you look physically better. Your blood flows more which stops skin looking grey and sallow, your skincare works twice as hard so skin naturally kicks into renewal and you don’t have massive black bags under your eyes. Great, you might be thinking, but what if your boss needs you in for 8am, you’ve got a baby screaming through the night or just can’t tear yourself off your Instagram feed – more sleep is impossible.
Is beauty sleep a real thing or just another myth? Surprisingly, this one is real. Admittedly, for many of us sleep is a precious luxury that’s often too hard to come by. And while coffee serves as a convenient substitute to perk up our energy levels, it does little for our appearance. Obviously, promising yourself an extra couple of hours of kip is easier said than done.
Oh acne, you really are a total bore. The list of things we’re not to allowed eat to avoid blemishes is basically all the good stuff (as we expected); coffee, sweets AND alcohol. Shall we stop smiling too? The bottom line is, we want clear skin more than we want our rep as the ‘good-time gal’ so we’ve been stocking up on the healthy stuff and painfully declining the cheese and wine socials in favour of a veggie brunch (honestly, we don't even unrecognisable ourselves).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
