Does supplementing with vitamin K2 make one's skin more likely to tear?

I am lackadaisical in supplementing with vitamin K2. Some days I take none, other days I take 4 drops (4 mg) of vitamin K2. I use the Thorne Research version. I've noticed that my skin after I supplement is more likely to bleed from abrasion eg washing my face with a washcloth. Does anyone else notice this effect?

I am not confident enough to clearly assert that in my n=1, it was the supplementation of K, but I'm leaning that way. Once I began, my skin got extremely dry, and has been more prone to abrasion. I am still, through the process of documentation and elimination, trying to pinpoint the cause.

I had a similar question here link text

in my n=1, I think it's more associated with the use of K supplementaiton.

Never noticed this before personally and never heard of it before.

I HAVE heard of extreme doses of fish oil doing this very thing.

If you seriously believe that you can link it to that supplement that you are taking, then I would stop taking that immediately. That certainly doesn't sound natural or good to me. I've never heard of that before, but then again I think eating loads of pasture butter/ghee and/or taking the high vitamin butter oil seem to be more popular choices for Paleo folk, as it is the mk4 version of k2 that has shown the positive affects from Weston A Price's research that Chris Masterjohn has pieced together for everyone so well.

Stephan from Whole Health Source says he notices a marked improvement in the texture of his skin with the butter oil, almost overnight. He doesn't mention anything about his skin being more prone to injury though.

Personally, I do not notice any difference in my skin hydration level while on the butter oil, and I take it daily. but then again, I live in San Diego, and while we do have envious whether 'most' of the time, it is also quite dry out here.
