Have you heard of the dry tissue test? You take a plain tissue (no lotion or medicated vapors) and shortly after your teen rises, have them wipe their face with the tissue.
If there is oil on the tissue your teen has oily skin, if oil is only on the center panel they have combination skin, and if the tissue is dry they have either normal skin or dry skin. In order to test for dry skin, have your teen wash their face with non-oil based soap.
That's it and if in a few minutes their skin begins to feel tight or like it's being pulled tight they have dry skin. There is no real test that can determine sensitive skin you and your teen will recognize sensitive skin if they skin irritations from their normal daily care routine.
