Sure, a face mask can’t do your laundry or pay your bills, but you can’t underestimate the benefit of a little me-time for body, mind and skin.
Leading the charge on beauty as a form of self-care is lifestyle guru Amanda Chantal Bacon, founder of Moon Juice, a Venice, California juice-shop-turned-wellness-empire with an A-list following including Gwyneth Paltrow and Shailene Woodley. Her mission? To elevate consciousness and wellbeing through plant-based and adaptogenic food, supplements and skincare, that as Bacon says, “bridges the world of alchemy, biology and functional ingredients.”
Health is holistic
Skincare that fits your lifestyle
From there, her tightly curated skincare fundamentals were born, encompassing a gentle cleanser to match your skin’s PH, a liquid exfoliator, a hyaluronic acid serum and an adaptogenic moisturiser to lock it all in. Bacon explains, “We partnered with one of the best chemists in the industry to pair potent plants with clinical actives. We carefully source our ingredients from their native regions and love to use some of the same key ingredients for both ingestible and topical formulas – Ashwagandha, hyaluronic acid, Schisandra, Reishi and Silver Ear Mushroom all have incredible synergistic inside-out and outside-in effects.”
In addition to this, all Moon Juice skincare is formulated without parabens, phthalates, sulfates, silicones, fragrance and artificial dyes and is vegan, non-GMO and gluten free. “I wanted care that would visibly change skin without harming the earth, your biome or your endocrine system.”
