My question is, has anyone experienced an initial breakout while using this stuff? A week ago my skin wasn't half as bad is it is now! I can't imagine turmeric is CAUSING my acne to be worse, and I believe it to be maybe purging the existing acne out??? I don't know. Please shed some light on this for me if you can. Did it make your skin worse, before getting better? How long should I wait it out for?? Thanks!!

Are you sure you aren't allergic to something in the capsules? Do you take other vitamins/supps? I've had a lot of reactions to vitamins and what not due to fillers, so it could be that. I seriously doubt it's the turmeric.

I use the powdered form of turmeric from a produce store in my area. No added fillers at all. i've been using the capsules consistently and never had a break out like this before putting the turmeric and organic extra virgin coconut oil as a topical treatment on my whole face. I'm thinking it's purging everything out of my system?
Yes, I do take other supplements. I'm currently taking garlic, as well as a few others for bronchitis that my naturopath gave me. I've been taking these for awhile now, so I know for a fact it's not any of that stuff. Literally, the only thing different that I've been doing is the turmeric. Hmmmmmmm :/ What do you think?

Coconut oil is EXTREMELY comedegenic! That may be causing your breakouts! Try using jojoba oil or olive oil first!
Yes that. But I recommend grapeseed or safflower oil for their high linoleic acid content. Or hemps seed. With caveat and that is that these high PUFA seed oils go rancid easily and those sold in the average supermarket in clear bottles are junk. Get a good one and store it in the fridge.
