Carson Meyer is a birth photographer, celebrity doula and most recently, the founder of skincare brand C & The Moon. Through her mom's work with the Natural Resources Defense Council, Meyer was made aware of the harsh chemicals used in skincare products early on in her adolescence. "Fortunately, she introduced me to clean alternatives, and we began making many of our own products in our kitchen," Meyer says. "That's where the Malibu Made Body Scrub was born, which ultimately inspired the launch of C & The Moon."
"I had just embarked on my career as a birth doula and was becoming more and more inspired every day by what I was learning about the skin," says Meyer. The idea to launch her own skincare brand arrived by popular demand as her friends kept asking for refills of her homemade body scrub. "It was so fulfilling to be offering a clean product that was delivering results for those with sensitive skin and making people feel good," she says. Since then, C & The Moon has introduced an array of skincare products, and Meyer, a firm believer in the "less is more" mantra, knows exactly which formulas work best. Keep scrolling for 16 products Meyer recommends incorporating into your daily wellness routine.
"I was the birth doula for Needed.'s co-founder. She is such a well of wisdom and puts so much thought and intention into formulating high-quality supplements. One of the things I love most about the collagen powder is it has no yucky aftertaste. It's an essential product for glowing skin and supporting skin and hair in pregnancy."
"My facialist Vanessa makes these face masks. She is the best in the game. The gold mask is so cooling and rejuvenating. It doesn't leave a yucky film like many masks do. The content absorbs straight into the skin and starts working immediately to hydrate and clear skin. I think it's the secret sauce of her incredible facials!"
"I love everything Living Libations, but their eye shadow might be my favorite. I hate the way most eye shadows dry out the skin and exacerbate any fine lines. This stuff is so moisturizing that it does the opposite. Since it's such a clean product, I will often use it on my lips, too."
