You can buy some topical corticosteroids "over-the-counter" without a prescription. For example, for dermatitis, you can buy the steroid cream called hydrocortisone 1% from your pharmacy. Do not apply this to your face unless your doctor has told you to do so. This is because it may trigger a skin condition affecting the face ( acne or rosacea. ) Long-term use may also damage the skin. On your face this would be more noticeable than the rest of your body. So usually only weak steroids are used on the face. Those which are suitable are prescription-only.
Actually I agree with the OP. Bodybuilding as we know it in the Mr. Olympia and similar competitions is a farce. Why? Because natural bodybuilders can’t compete, they can’t even come close to those sizes. It’s so bad, that body building competitions only every really enforced it for one year, then quickly moved to a policy of stating banned substances, then wink wink, not enforce it. What you see on TV and magazines of body builders are all fake with steroids. The muscle is literally very real, but the person is fake for using it.
