There are lots of ways to treat melasma. Jenna went down the Coolaser route, which requires the surfaces of the skin to be cooled and then a series of light pulses are flashed onto the skin’s surface. This attacks the first layer of skin cells, and stimulates the production of new collagen, leaving you with new, younger-looking skin. A moisturising cream is then applied right after to help eliminate dryness.
Calling all beauty obsessives and illustrators, we need your help this Christmas. We already know how many talented beauty illustrators and photographers there are out there because you all tag us in your Instagram posts—which is why this year, we're asking you to help us design our very own Byrdie Beauty Christmas e-card. The design should include the words "Merry Christmas from all of us at Byrdie UK" somewhere and have 'byrdie.co.uk' at the bottom.
There are a lot of things I enjoy doing. Sleep, however, is not one of them. I know, I know, who am I?! Of course I enjoy sleep when I actually can sleep. I adore it, love it even. That feeling when you wake up from a sleep so deep not even a car alarm could wake you—but my problem is those kinds of nights just never, ever happen. I'm a "wake up to every single sound, 17 times and arise at 6 am because it's pointless staying in bed" kind of girl. Until now.
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".
