Over the weekend I got an email from two friends: “Tell us everything you put on your face now that it's winter!” Now that most of our radiators are rattling away, with each clank sucking the actual life out of our skin, I tend to drench myself in more oil than usual. But maybe most important is focusing on my skin's barrier function (this is the outermost layer of skin; if it's compromised, that's when your skin really starts to feel dry).
There’s a slew of products out there that claim to banish blackheads, but which method is really the best? (You may be thinking you already know the most obvious and fastest way to get rid of them: Just extract with your fingers. Yeah, don’t do that.) With the help of a few pros, we gathered the six best ways to get rid of and prevent blackheads — a mix of home remedies, prescription, in-office and over-the-counter methods.
Something about traveling for me invariably means losing lip balm . There was the time I was outside of Taos, New Mexico, stuck Yelping the nearest Walgreens. Another time I frantically searched the aisles of a tiny health food store in Ojai, California. And maybe most memorably, when I was 19 backpacking through Italy one summer, desperately looking for the nearest neon green pharmacy sign.
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".
