For those who were lucky enough to escape to someplace sunny for spring break, it must have been tempting to bake on a beach for hours to get sexy, tanned skin. But the unsexiest thing after baking in the sun is a sun burn. Be sure to check out these tips for safe and sun kissed skin. The key to choosing the right sunscreen is reading the labels for a broad-spectrum, hypoallergenic and waterproof product that has a moderate to high level of SPF.
Now that summer’s officially arrived, we’re ditching our winter coats for warm weather beauty, shopping, and travel essentials. Starting summer off on a pretty note doesn’t have to require a million dollars and a glam squad so we reined in the queen of effortless chic, style expert, television personality, and author of “Never Pay Retail Again: Shop Smart, Spend Less, and Look Your Best Ever” Daisy Lewellyn to give Essence.com her top 10 money saving tips from beauty deals to summer vacations.
Ladies, if you’re a makeup hoarder like me, chances are that you own too much make up—most of which is rarely used and taking up space. But while you tell yourself that your purchases are justified because you’ll use these products later, makeup products can actually come back to haunt you. Since U.S. labeling regulations don’t require makeup to have an expiration date, most people don’t know that there comes a time to toss certain products, according to an article from Good Housekeeping.
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".
