Is this a myth or does this really happen to some of you guys and if so what's the cause?

If that were the case young people would look old and old geezers with low  test would look young  Roll Eyes Which bro scientist came up with this genius conclusion.

Yeah but I'm talking about levels way above what would be considered normal.

You've never heard of test making certain people appear older than what they are?

I think prior to a certain age, yes, but once in your 30's, no. But, you can look at a 19 year old juice head, and they look 30.

Age and appearance is genetic... if you are fit it will make you look younger too.. if you are fat (like I let myself go at once) you will look older too.

However some people age faster than others in appearance it has nothing to do with test... how about women lol its not like they use test... they have test but u know what i mean... likewise with some ppl NEVER looking older and their skin looking AMAZING.

If anything I would think GH levels play a role far more in youthful or not youthful apperaance than test or androgens.

Most asians look RIDICULOUSLY young ALWAYS even if they are 40+.. their skin super smooth, normally also hairless, but again doesn't have to do with test lol... genetics far more.

Good point. Look at guys like tbombz and flintstones...way younger than me but look much older.

Of course its genetics. Just like some of us are prone to hair loss, gyno or whatever it may be, there will be ways for us to minimize these side effects through 5ar blockers, ai..etc.  

So, what I'm trying to get at is what exactly would cause someone to appear older exactly....the supposed decrease in collagen synthesis some people claim test will produce, dht, maybe just the androgenic effects of steroids or could be testosterone is the only culprit  Huh

Luckily I'm blessed with having a younger appearance just as I've never suffered with acne even prior to juice. Still concerned, since I plan on supplementing with test for a while and I wonder if adding something like eq, var, or deca would help offset this side effect if it were to become an issue.
