Real Skin

Amy Putney Koenig & Dan Koenig

  • Age 51 & 53
  • Skin Type Dry
  • Concern Rosacea & Hydration

Amy & Dan are both self-proclaimed "low maintenance" in the skin deartment but as they get older want to spend more time making sure their skin is, at least, clean and hydrated. Amy has been diagnosed with rosacea and cystic acne in the past but hasn't had any flair ups with either in quite some time. These two perfectly represent the skincare needs of someone who wants simple, easy and effective - less is more.

About Amy & Dan

Amy & Dan both grew up and lived most of their lives in Des Moines. These two are by far the coolest couple that shops at Eden so we felt they had to be a package deal. Amy has an art studio where she makes paintings, collages, and illustrations; her beautiful murals also punctuate the different nieghborhoods that make up Des Moines. Dan has a tattoo shop (YYD) and a bike shop (Ichi Bike). Amy & Dan have two kids - Helen (22) and Isaac (15)

Torri, 32

  • Skin Type Normal & Easily Irritated
  • Concern Preventative Care

Gentle cleansers and richer moisturizers are Torri's go-to. As her Eden Team encourages, she's started using chemical exfoliants in the past year, and gentle ones at that, sparingly - great to combat dullness. She's consistent with sun protection and at home facials with skincare devices to lift, sculpt, and allow for a deeper absorbtion of hydrating products.
