There's no clinical evidence that there is a connection between oranges and acne, or any other foods causing acne. Unless your allergic to oranges, I don't see how it could have caused it. Perhaps it was acne under the skin and it's just surfacing now, so now it looks like oranges are the culprit. If you feel like oranges are the cause then just stop eating them.
Openseason, the things you say come from where? It makes no sense to me that someone trying to engage in good eating habits would substitute kitkats in place of oranges.

I don't know if this is a coincidence or not but the past week my skin has been really red, more breakouts and itching. After reading your post I realized that I've been eating clementines like crazy because I bought a huge box about a week ago and I love them. So I'm not gonna eat anymore and see what happens. I already feel a difference in the redness and itching from not eating them today...I may just be fooling myself .
Its just a coincedince. Actually drining lots of OJ helps your skin, so that would mean eating oranges will help improve your skin, if it doesn't it sure doesn't make it worse. I remember when I went on vacation to Mexico, I drank lots of orange juice, boy was it sure good, I also didn't eat lots of junk food like Mcdonalds, pizza(lol, Im the type of person who eats pizza and burgers)because there wasn't any in Mexico :P,also I drink lots and lots of pop. So during this two week vacation I didn't really eat nothing but some tacos and orange juice and the occasional beer :P. I really didn't notice anything about my face until when I got home. My sister told me what did I do cause my skin was clear. So I take a look and hey what do you know she was right. All of my sisters and friends told me something look different and that it was my face, and that I look better, boy this sure boosted my confidence.
Well this concludes, that Im pretty sure eating or drinking lots of OJ will help clear up your skin, and also by staying away from junk food and fast food, also pop. Too bad my skin right now isn't like it was due to going back to the same route of eating junk food. Im now going to stop eating all that stuff, and stay away from pop and junk food and head towards lots of water,OJ and fruit.
