Have you noticed your Instagram feed looking all a bit samey recently? Endless faces with poreless skin, supersize lips, extreme contouring and eye looks that’d mean you’d have to get up two hours early to perfect? Us too. If this stream of identikit perfection is giving you a little bit of Insta-fatigue it might be time to add some new faces to your list.
The benefits of cleansing with oil are manifold. These silky formulas dissolve any amount of make-up and daily grime seamlessly – even lashings of mascara – so party season is a great time to get on board. What’s more, as oil attracts oil, any excess sebum will be removed along with your cleanser, leaving skin extra clean without that tight, dry feeling. It’s not just those with dry skin who can benefit from a cleansing oil.
But Xu isn’t the only one playing host to these microscopic critters. Demodex mites inhabit the skin of mammals, specifically the hair follicles and oily sebaceous glands. Under normal circumstances, you won’t be aware of them (they’re microscopic) but unsanitary conditions and airless environments can cause them to thrive, meaning Xu’s vintage pillowcase and stuffy bedroom were essentially a parasite paradise.So, it turns out your parents were on to something after all…
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".
