Your skin can change over time. For example, younger people are more likely than older people to have a normal skin type.
What’s the difference between them all?

How much water is in your skin (which affects its comfort and elasticity)
How oily it is (which affects its softness)
How sensitive it is (which can cause all sorts of issues)
