When you’re a stylist with clients like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Brady, Daniel Day-Lewis, former president Bill Clinton, Ashton Kutcher, and Al Pacino, its safe to say, you know a thing or two about looking good. We caught up with Vaughn Acord, one of the most celebrated authorities in the grooming business and founder of V76 by Vaughn, for men’s grooming tips on working with your barber, taking care of your skin, growing your beard, and living your best-groomed life.
Adding another step to your grooming routine is the last thing you want to do, but hear us out. You need to exfoliate with a scrub in order to reap the benefits of the other products you’re already using. It makes sense when you think about: Shedding the surface layer of dead skin cells will give shaving creams, beard oils, and moisturizers a chance to really sink into your clear pores. Scrubbing can prevent acne-causing oil build-up and free ingrown hairs that lead to annoying razor bumps.
It’s time to mask up. Sun damage, lack of sleep, a hectic work schedule and too many nights out can lead to dull, dehydrated skin. Sure, shaving and scrubs work to exfoliate dead surface cells. But, face masks for men go one step further by drawing up pore clogging gunk that can lead to breakouts and shaving bumps. Unearth the dirt, sweat and oil trapped deep in your pores by applying a face mask once a week. Start clean. With your fingertips apply the mask to your entire face and neck.
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".
