Some tips to alleviate any troubles with acne.

1. Shower frequently ie morning, immediately after training, and before bed.
2. Use tanning beds 2-3 times per week.
3. Use a benzyl peroxide lotion or cream after washing and prior to bed at night.
4. Use oral antibiotics, ie tetracycline
5. Use Accutane- on advice of physician only
6. Use oral vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) 5-10 grams daily in divided doses..starting 1 week prior to AAS cycle and continuing until 3 weeks post cycle*
7. Avoid sugary foods
8. Laser Treatments. Smoothbeam, thermage, Aura Photofacial

I have used all above methods except Accutane, and found that showering, tanning , and B5 supplementation work the best. B5 is phenomenal in cutting oil production of the skin down to a minimum...it is the only thing that truly works while using test or high androgenic AAS such as tren, drol, dbol, halo, etc.

I have used it on a couple cycles. I don't have bad acne to start with, but sometimes it will flare up on cycle. I frontloaded at around 10-13 grams for about a week, then 7-8 grams every day thereafter and post cycle for a while. Some may think the dose is overkill but it works for me. Others say it has no effect. It does dry up the oil for me. I wouldn't do a cycle without it. I use bulk powder. It tastes horrid but you get used to it.

I put it in some water and shake it and swallow it like a shot and have a chaser handy. I suppose you could inject it, but I am not sure what the dosing would be. You might be able to get it into an injectable soloution, but I don't think it would be worth it.

Evening Primrose Oil, Black Currant Oil, or Borage Oil will help as they are all high in Gamma Linoleic Acid. Gamma Linoleic Acid is a natural inhibitor of 5 Alpha Reductase which is used to convert testosterone to DHT. I use Evening Primrose Oil which I feel is the best source of GLA.

Since GLA it is a fatty acid, you really cannot overdose on it as excess GLA will just be metabolized so supplementing with it can help with acne as well as male pattern baldness (to an extent) since it helps to keep DHT from getting out of control.

DHT does have its uses and when it comes to Penis Enlargement, there are varying theories as to whether it has any affect on post-pubescent penile growth, but I supplement with it and it really helps a lot with oil control and I have noticed my hair is thicker than ever since using it.

Also, repetitive use of benzoyl peroxide helps a lot as well. Potency is not as important as frequency, so you want to use just enough to keep acne away but not so much that you dry your skin up. If you use the right kind of light in your bathroom, you can tell where your impending trouble spots are going to be, so you just apply the benzoyl peroxide gently in liberal amounts before you go to bed or else use some of the colored cream which blends in with the skin a little better if you need to put it on before going to work.

Well, you guys should keep in mind that it might not be acne. There are 7 types of breakout's, and one type of breakout is acne. A good number of people with one of the other types of outbreaks tend to mistake it as acne. Then they use acne treatment, become fustrated that the treatment does not work. The best method would be to go to a dermatologist and figure out what you have.

I was on Accutane a few years back. It put it out with a fire hose, so to speak. One of the side effects is dry skin, which I still notice today. It was worth it though.

I had really bad skin for about 5 1/2 years.

It disappeared about 6-8 months ago , unsure what it was , but I can only attribute it to less stress and my drinking of around 5 litres of water a day and 4-6 pieces of fruit , a coupl of potatos and carrots etc.

Never had any joy from off the shelf cleansers or anything like that , presonally I am very sceptical they do anything more thne just irritate the skin even more. Think about it , these companies have little to gain from sorting out your skin problem , as you will have no incentive to buy their stuff if your skin is fine.

Never tried anything with benzyl peroxide in it however.

For me I have found nothing to work, including going to the dermatologist. Recently my gf told me how to get rid of acne and my face cleared up within a week! I wash my face twice a day.
Every other day I use noxema face wash, and I alternate it with Clean and Clear deep action cleanser. After I wash my face, I apply an astringent... I use Oxy. Then I put 10% benzoil peroxide on the spots with acne lightly.
