If we asked you, "How do you apply your moisturizer?" we're betting your response would likely be something like, "What do you mean, 'How do I apply my moisturizer?' I slap it on my face, rub it in and move on with my life." We get it. But what if we told you that the way you apply your topical face treatments could have an impact on how your skin actually looked? Would you take an extra minute or two then?

When was the last time you cleaned your hairbrush? Like, really cleaned it? No judgment, but it’s a daily habit we should all get into now. “Eliminate the accumulation of hair after each use,” says N.Y.C. hairstylist Juan Carlos Maciques. You can run a sturdy comb through bristles to pull up strands from the bed. The hairs are much more difficult to loosen after they’ve been allowed to sit and accumulate, Maciques says.
We don't need to remind you to wear sunscreen everyday (right?). But do you actually do it? If not, we're betting the reason is one of the following: It feels too heavy or sticky. It leaves an odd cast on your complexion. It's another step in your routine, and you just don't have the time for it. Sound familiar? If so, we have the answer to all three gripes: Giorgio Armani Beauty Maestro UV Skin Defense Primer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($64, nordstrom.com).
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
