Torri Myers

  • Age 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.

About Torri

Torri has spent the last decade forming friendships within the walls of this city's brick and mortar shops, and being truly proud of how our community's creatives are able to come together to make magical things happen. Her love of vintage started from a childhood collection of ‘70s music that has kept her inspired to this day; it's her rule to come home with a vintage dress from the cities she may travel to. Torri lives on the South Side of Des Moines with her partner, Nam Ho, and Miles and Pia - their dogs/obession. She continues to follow her mother's advice: Food tastes better when shared - ready for tacos or Asian cuisine anytime. She paints watercolor commissioned work and feels the very best as a disco dancefloor queen, or waterside enjoying fresh air and sunshine.
