View Full Version : My first cycle

02-19-2009, 09:26 PM
I'm using 500 a week test e and only one complaint.

I'm in week 6 and noticed that my skin, especially my face is always greasy! A bit more pimples than usual but not that bad. I'm having to cleans 4 times a day and use facial wipes twice a day! I dont live in a hot country!

Any thoughts???

I just finished my cycle. I broke out pretty bad on my forehead. I tried tanning, "special" zit soap, face wipes and nothing worked for me. It was like my zits were on steroids. Oh yeah, they were. Hopefully someone with more experience chimes in. I'm thinking about trying proactiv next. I didn't feel like my face was greasy.

sorry i cant give some better advice, my first cycle was 750 mg of test E but all i got were on my back so i didnt worry about it, and after a few months of being off i'm back to normal again

just use regular soap, wash hard, keep it dry, and wait for your body to rebound and get back to normal

Try using a little anti-bacterial dish soap in the shower...Baking soda is good also. Both remove the oilyness..

Drink more water.

I've always used Dermalogica products. The spots are not the issue cos i would always get one a week. Its just that im always sweating and face is so greasy! I will try drinking more water especially since i just feel so dehydrated most of the times!

Thanks guys.

Juntao, there is really not going to be too much you can do to address the acne problem through a chemical pathway (save decreasing your dosages, if you are willing to try that), you will basically have to approach this like someone who gets acne without using AAS. Clean your face often, drink plenty of water, and eat clean. Any other dermatologist recommended advice I would follow as well.

Juntao probably your greasy skin is effect of high level of DHT. Are you taking saw palmetto ?

proactive works.. but downside is once your on it.. you cant stop.. ive tried.. been on the shit since early 06.. for whatever reason it works really well. . but once you stop your breakouts are horrible.. just an fyi... i would say go with some type of oral for the acne.. . just my .02.. tanning seems to work for the back and shoulders.. or get some Retin-a..

salicylic acid wash. can be found in any grocery store. wash face 3 times per day. also get the OXY salicylic pads, and use as well. or go on accutane for 3 months, at 20 mg per day, and ull never get acne again, but u may get VERY dry skin, permanently.

neutrogene body wash works great. It has a nice healthy dose of salicyclic acid.
