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.
Winstrol is hepatotoxic, and because of this, it should be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible cycle. What’s more, you should consider using a supplement designed to provide some additional protection. Milk thistle is a highly recommended option; studies suggest it can provide an effective layer of protection when it is used for the entire length of your cycle. There are some other supplements on the market, such as Liver Care, which are blends of natural ingredients that have been shown to work together to prevent liver toxicity.
As this anabolic steroid is not very liver toxic, in-fact it is quite mild it can be used for extended periods of time; if you are not susceptible to DHT based side-effects you could reasonably supplement with Proviron the entire duration of your cycle. While it can be used for extended periods, as we will see dosing protocol can vary dramatically depending on the purpose for which it is used. If Proviron is being used simply as a quasi-anti-estrogen medication then a mere 25mg per day may be all you need but many will find 50mg to be needed if their cycle contains a high dosing of aromatizing steroids. For those who are supplementing for additional beneficial purposes higher doses may be needed; although 50mg will provide them solid effects a slightly higher bump may be needed. If you choose to use Proviron this is something you may need to play with as individual response will vary greatly. For the individual who supplements for the purpose of bridging, a rather common purpose of Proviron use, doses will necessarily be much higher, ranging from 100mg-150mg per day if the individual is going to obtain the desired effect and benefits.
