Anabolic steroids can cause the development of acne. However, the extent to which it is experienced can be due to a number of varying factors, with the particular steroids and exact dosages used being primary. The skin´s sebaceous glands have a particularly high affinity to Dihydrotestosterone, which is an androgen the body naturally produces from testosterone via the enzyme 5-alpha Reductase. Increased sebaceous gland activity promotes oily skin which can combine with bacteria and dead skin (normal wear and tear) eventually causing pores to become clogged more quickly than the body can cleanse them. This of course, is preventable by using only particular steroids, cleansing the skin regularly, and perhaps using a topical anti-androgen.
Summary: You are not likely to find any heavy duty bodybuilders bothering using Andractim, although it’s a way to test the waters of anabolics. The topical method of application and low levels of benefit it produces means that it is not worth their time. It is perfect if you are just starting in the world of weightlifting or bodybuilding. Other than a slight soreness to the muscles initially there are some side effects. One problem can be availability. It is not always easy to find and could be illegal in many countries. Our advice is to stay away from Andractim, because it is risky and will not provide you good results. It’s better to choose a safer and more effective legal alternative.
