Misconceptions about skin types:
Your skin type DOES NOT change; You are born with a skin type that will be with you throughout your life.
This does not mean that someone with oily skin can not become ‘dehydrated’ and feel dry.
You can get breakouts with dry skin.
Your skin may not be sensitive; it may just be sensitized. Use of improper products, over stimulation, over treatment can all lead any skin type to become sensitized.
