Dry skin: Most people with Dry skin majorly have a dry appearance, they feel tight in the morning, mostly itchy and may have rough or flakey patches.

Acne-prone skin: Like the name suggests, they are usually prone to acne and products can easily cause acne flare-ups. This type of skin is majorly attributed to hormonal imbalances or sensitivity, it is usually regarded as a combination to oily skin.
