Whether it’s a cleanser, lotion or mask, no skin care product should cause burning or stinging. “This is often a sign that you’re allergic to it,” explains S.

Parks, MD, board-certified dermatologist and founder of DermWarehouse. “You’re either allergic to something in the product or your skin is simply too sensitive for whatever it contains.”
