The best skincare products for people with NORMAL/DRY/SENSITIVE SKIN.

1. Simple refreshing face wash.

It is a perfect facewash for normal, dry and sensitive skin types, but it does suit all skin types. It does not contain any sort of color or dyes, and has no artificial fragrance or soap. Not containing soap or fragrance is very important because it may lead to allergic reactions for people with sensitive skin. Hence, this is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic(it does not clog pores). It's also Dermatologically tested and Approved. With a regular use skin becomes soft and healthy.

2. Simple hydrating moisturizer.

This moisturizer suits all skin types. It is Dermatologically tested, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. The fact that it is free from alcohol, harsh chemicals and parabens, makes it completely safe to use it on sensitive and dry skin because alcohol damages the skin barrier, which leads to dryness, itching and hyperreactivity.
