Souriyno Chen

  • Age 32
  • Skin Type Combination
  • Concerns Acne

Souriyno has truly combination skin with bouts of dryness and bouts of oiliness. With some occassional acne, Souriyno mostly attributes breakouts to stress, major shifts in diet, or changes to his skincare routine (his skin is sensitive to new products).

About Souriyno

Souriyno has spent most of his life in Iowa. After college, he and his husband biked across the country to Seattle and down the coast to San Francisco to tour and learn more about small scale vegetable farm production across different regions of the country. Now, Souriyno shares his love of Asian cuisine at the restaurant that he co-owns with his family called Lucky Lotus. In his down-time, Souriyno loves riding his bike with his husband, Phil, and dog, Tofu.

Joshua describes his skin as oily to oily predominate combo. Teen years riddled with “trying all the things” resulted in heavily textured skin and post acne hyper-pigmentation.

Torri, 31

  • 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.
