Some people believe they have sensitive skin because skincare products may cause stinging, burning, redness, or tightness at one time.
Actuality sensitive skin is caused by genetics. It is identified with a history of histamine reactions. Histamine reaction occurs when the immune system overreacts.
This type of sensitive skin can be found on any body area, but is most common in areas where oil production is low, such as the upper back, lower arms and lower legs.
