3. Sensitive skin
Skin that is sensitive is prone to irritation. Acne, rosacea, and contact dermatitis, a type of red, itchy rash, are common in people with sensitive skin. Those with sensitive skin are more likely to experience stinging or burning.
People with sensitive skin are more likely to react negatively to certain ingredients, so they should avoid extremely harsh chemicals in all of their beauty products, not just skin care. People with acne, for example, should avoid isopropyl myristate, a common chemical in hair conditioners.
People with sensitive skin should avoid friction, extreme heat, and triggers such as alcohol or stress if they are known to irritate their skin.
Sensitive skin also overlaps with the dry skin type. I consider dry skin to be sensitive as well. When you put something on it, it hurts, burns, or gets red.
Sensitive skin isn't necessarily a permanent condition; it might develop as a result of overscrubbing, overexfoliation, or the use of harsh products.
Most skin isn't as sensitive as you think it is if you use the right products.

4. Combination skin
There’s not a universal definition for combination skin and some dermatologists, think it’s not a true skin type like oily or dry.
Combination skin is oilier on the forehead and nose, where more oil glands are found, and drier on the cheeks. It's common for the area surrounding the mouth to be both dry and oily, as well as more sensitive in general.
If you notice that your T-zone is oilier than the rest of your face, apply a cream designed for oily skin to those areas only. Different products can also be used on the nose and forehead.
You can also switch up your cleansers based on how dry or oily your skin is at different periods of the year or month.

6. Normal skin
Normal skin, like combination skin, is difficult to describe. "Normal" simply refers to what you consider to be normal. There is no such thing as "normal skin" in my opinion. You've got your typical, which might be combination, dry, or oily. Normal skin, if you must categorise it, is skin that can tolerate most things without overreacting. Normal skin has no medical definition, although it could suggest that the skin is healthy and hydrated in general, according to dermatologists.
Normal skin produces just enough sebum to keep the skin hydrated, therefore it's actually oily skin with just enough sebum production to maintain the skin healthy. A better term would be "healthy skin," but that is not a true skin type.
While normal skin varies from person to person, there are some products that I recommend for people who don’t tend to overreact to skin care ingredients.
