You can buy this cream in standard shops, stores, supermarkets and pharmacies around you. You can also check reputable online stores or vendors like this one on IG to get one. Just be sure you know how to identify the original one so that you do not fall for the fake one or imitation.
How to identify original Skineal triple action cream
Just like many effective products in the market, Skineal has got many of its imitations and fake going round the markets and disgusting as the original one. You may have got one yourself without knowing because they look so much the same unless you can start paying attention to the details.
The fake and the original one look alike but just remembering some important things would help you differentiate the two. First, let us take a look at both of them.
Photo of original Skineal cream
Photo of the fake Skineal cream
First of all, the very obvious difference is the “VIXA” written right in front of the “SKINEAL” at the front of the product. But not so fast! Do not assume that every product that has the “VIXA” visible is the original one. Notice the difference in the size of the pack, the original one is longer and slightly slimmer. Notice the font size and style, the design and colours. Keep in mind that all these features on the original one are shinier and the colour is sharper compared to the fake one. The original one also comes in a very unique and thick rectangular paper pack and the tube has a smooth, circle-like shape with a round cover, unlike the fake one. The content is usually rough for the original one, but when it is d fake it comes out very smooth like a normal gel.
If you can, memorize how the original box looks like and what the product inside also looks like. This will help you always buy the original one whenever you are out to buy it for yourself. And of course, you can always check the pack of the cream to locate the barcode and then type that into a search engine to see if the details shown is corrected.
What happens when you use Skineal for long?
The ideal length of time to use Skineal is between 2-3 weeks max, depending on what you are treating. Many things can go wrong when you use Skineal for too long. Some of them include:
- Using creams like Skineal for a long time, can clear the good bacteria on your skin and give the more dangerous bacteria room to spread. This good bacteria would have helped to prevent other harmful organisms from colonizing the skin surface, but with its disappearance, you can experience more infections, constant irritation and discomfort.
- Long use of Skineal cream can strip your skin of healthy substances and leave your skin vulnerable while also making your good bacteria faulty by affecting how they function.
- It can cause antibiotic resistance. Normally, excessive use of topical antibiotics is directly responsible for increasing antibacterial resistance. So, when you develop such resistance, especially to topical antibiotic creams, this can also affect the effectiveness of oral and IV medicines thereby leaving you with no effective antibiotic to use if you have a serious infection.
- Long term use of most antifungal creams, including Skineal, can disrupt the skin ecosystem leading to resistance. Over time they can get absorbed into the bloodstream and can lead to side effects like liver damage and even heart failure.
- Since this cream contains steroids, it can affect your body’s ability to produce its natural hormones leading to massive withdrawal symptoms when you finally stop using it.
- Using steroids can cause your skin to get thin and make you more susceptible to injuries that are unable to heal properly.
- Creams containing steroids can make your skin look nice at the beginning, but when the use becomes long term, it can lead to steroid acne which is worse and very hard to get rid of, and also unnecessary stretch marks as it can affect the functioning of the skin making it difficult to maintain its elasticity.
Can I recommend the Skineal cream?
I can recommend Skineal cream to people who want to quickly get rid of their pimples, infection, acne, rashes, blemishes, eczema, melasma or discolouration, especially stubborn ones. It works to do these as long as it is used with prescription, under a doctor’s supervision and for a short period (2-3 weeks max).
However, I do not recommend it if your reason for use is to bleach your skin or use it for a long time. The truth is, using a steroid for bleaching your skin is terrible enough, not to mention using something much worse like triple-action creams of which Skineal is one. Keep in mind that Skineal is a treatment cream and this means that it should only be used if you have an infection with bacteria or a fungus or you have an inflammation. It is also supposed to be applied over a small area, not on the whole body as many people are doing now. And most importantly, it should be used for a short time, at a maximum of 2-3 weeks not for years, it is not a body lotion!
There is just so much to say about this Skineal cream. But the most important thing to keep in mind is that the cream is an effective one that works to give amazing results when treating skin infections and other conditions. However, using this for more than 3 weeks, or outside the prescription from a health practitioner can lead to more harm on your skin than it would want to take.
If you need it to get rid of skin infections or facial blemishes, then you are sure to enjoy it. But do not get carried away by its effectiveness and use it longer than the recommended time. Your skin would not thank you for that and you would end up with more issues than you started with.
