I’ve never been one of those people who leaves washing my face until right before bed and because of fatigue and sheer laziness, either fail to do it or resolve it half-assed with a wipe. It’s a process I get out of the way before 9pm. But for the last few months it’s been something I look forward to doing, and that’s because I’ve discovered cleansing balms. My gateway to this occurred when I had a facial with Sharon McGlinchey, founder of MV Organics.
You always know when warm weather has officially arrived: by that telltale sight of skin that’s pink from too much UV exposure. “People always come in in April with the first sunburn of the season,” says Toronto dermatologist Dr. Sonya Cook. Everyone is just so damn excited to finally see single digit temperatures vaporize that they get out there to soak up that glorious sunshine, without heeding too much attention to protecting themselves.
While there continues to be debate as to whether or not chemical sunscreen filters are dangerous (and apparently harmful to coral reefs), one thing that’s indisputable is that they can be irritating to the skin. That’s just one reason why mineral sunscreens continue to gain traction, with more options hitting the market year after year.
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".
