What type of cells goes through cell division?

I'm assuming you mean human cells. Skin cells go through cell division (Mitosis) daily, because your skin is constantly being replaced. Blood cells have a half-life of approximately 30 days, so that is how often they reproduce. Muscle cells also reproduce, as you are destroying muscle cells every time you work out. The few cells that don't reproduce include Brain Cells and Spinal Cord cells (Nervous Cells).

Why do skin cells reproduce faster than other kinds of cells?

Skin cells are in an unusually vulnerable position, on the outside of the body. Everything on the inside of the body is wrapped in skin cells and protected by the skin. The skin is exposed to damaging ultraviolet radiation from the sun, to extremes of heat and cold, to friction from things that you touch, to corrosive substances, to every stress that the environment has to offer. As a result, skin cells die more rapidly, and they have to reproduce more rapidly to replace the cells that die.
