Nixoderm: An Alternative for Skin Problems
Are you struggling with either acne, pimples, blemishes, eczema, ringworm, or irritated skin? Me too, and I'm glad you came to my lense
I personally struggle with pimples and blemishes and have tried multiple skincare products. You name it; I probably had a run with it somewhere along the line. Most didn't work, and the ones that sort of worked were barely scratching the surface. The ones that did I simply couldn't afford. When I went home to visit my family about a week ago, my mom handed me this small tin, called Nixoderm. I was a little skeptical at first, but she swore that this thing would do work wonders. And she told me that one tin cost her about $3.00, which in my book, is a pretty sweet deal.
Alright. I'm up for a challenge. So I tried it for about a month.
At first, I wasn't seeing much going on. But after a while, I noticed my blemishes starting to fade a bit. Then I started noticing that the frequency at which I broke out slightly lessened. I used to get many huge pimples at a time, but now, it's reduced to one or two smaller ones, or none at all. I'd say those are pretty good odds.

How to use Nixoderm
Nixoderm says you should use this twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. I haven't done the twice a day thing because I think it's a hassle to do it in the morning and works just as well when I do only it at night. I suppose if you want maximum results, it would be best to try it twice a day.
First, wash your face thoroughly with warm water and soap. I usually do it right after I take my evening shower because it easier. Afterwards, apply it on your whole face or on the affected area. Nixoderm is a very thick paste, so take a little and rub it in very well. Be sure to do massage it into your skin gently with the pads of your fingers.
You might experience a stinging sensation after applying. Relax, your skin won't peel off in clumps or anything like that. It's just the Nixoderm doing it's thing. Normally, it shouldn't be too bad, but if it is really irritating you, I suggest you wash it off immediately with warm water. Let it sit for a few minutes, and then wash off with warm water. Your face might feel very dry after using the cream. If you have a facial cream that you put on after your face cleaning regimen, it might be best to apply immediately.
If you have delicate or sensitive skin, try mixing the cream with petroleum jelly and then apply it.
Also, be very careful! Nixoderm can stain cloth, so use a washcloth that you don't care about too much.
Buying Nixoderm Online
You most likely aren't going to find Nixoderm in the nearest CVS or Walgreens. Nixoderm is primarily made in Africa and Asia. If you live near an African or Asian market, ask someone there. If you don't live near one, that's completely okay too. You can still purchase one (or a couple hundred) right here on Amazon at a price that won't break the bank!
