Laura Federico, Goldie & Fia Federico-Rubin

  • Age 38, 5, 1
  • Skin Type Oily, Combination
  • Concern Hormonal skin, Children's sensitivities

Goldie and Fia have both had sensitive skin since birth. Daily moisturizing and avoidance of irritants are crucial. Staying on top of
all skincare ingredients makes a big difference for both girls. Keeping
both protected in the sun while taking care of their skin is a major
priority in the sunny months and protecting their skin from the dry cold is a wintertime goal. Laura is navigating hormonal shifts in her
skincare, looking for a combination of products that allows for a
flexible and low-maintenance routine.

About the Frederico-Rubins

The Federico-Rubin family is truly one of the coolest we know - our day is always brighter when these two visit the shop. Laura was raised in the Midwest but hadn't been back until recently, when she and her family (husband and daughter, Goldie) moved to Des Moines from Switzerland. The Federico-Rubin clan has lived in Brooklyn, Istanbul, and Geneva before introducing Goldie to the fun and overall chill vibes of the midwest.

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.
