I've used it before on my face, I didn't like the yellow afterward. I may use it again if I can find something to get rid of the yellow.

I've been adding it to my aloe vera concoction. Also mix with yogurt for a mask. It didn't stain my pale skin.

I'm going to half-backup curcuminoid's statement:
- I've read in a book (health bible or something like that), that to absorb curcumin, you should add pepper and oil. It's not stated if the pepper has to be black or not though. Curcumin is supposed to be helpful for a whole bunch of things, acne is amongst those.
- As for whether it really works or not, I can't say. Based from my personnal experience, I used standard turmeric and pepper (no supplement or stuff), I'm not sure if it really helped me or not. My face is improving lately, but I can't really say if it's linked to this or not since I've made lots of changes.
 
By the way, acne einstein recently posted a new article about Turmeric, you should maybe go check it out (I don't think I'm allowed to link it but you should find it easily).


They mean black pepper.
Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

I did Turmeric for about a month and by the end it had stained everything in my bathroom haha.  I still eat it as an alternative to aspirin but people should be careful it can plummet your blood pressure if you take too much of it or in combination with other meds.

Totally drinking "tumeric green tea" from bulk barn, feeling pretty good about it!


Check out my Regimen Log HERE.

Back on DKR full force after trying to get off of it with horrible results.

I have been doing this mask for the last 3 days (water and turmeric mixed together) and have had great results so far.

 

although, I am very, very... very carful with my skin (hence why I didn't use yogurt and only water) and I only leave it on for 15 minutes before washing it off, although it seems to be doing the trick for my stubborn red marks!eusa_dance.gif

This mask might be a 'less is more' situation. for me anyway.

Why are you afraid of yogurt? It's a great topical.  There's a bacteria in it that boosts ceramide production which strengthens the epidermal barrier.  And of course the lactic acid is exfoliating.

Oh ok thanks for the information, I wasn't sure if it could be comedogenic or something... I will try using it tomorrow!
