Question my skins gone orange!!

hi, i got an electric juicer and for the past 4 1/2 months ive been juicing fruit and vege's daily, every morning i drink about 5-6 carrots with an orange and an apple,or /rock melon/pair,or what ever fruit i have,but the base is always plenty of carrots.i notice my hands have turned orangey ,especially when im cold, its very noticeable when next to other white skin thats more pinkish.
??? i know i consume alot of carrots in juice but is this harmful to my health? and how do i know if i have overdosed on vit A, or just gone orange, is orange skin a sign of something wrong or just a pigmentation issue?, i just enjoy Carrot juice so much in the mornings, .

Re: my skins gone orange!!

Your skin going orange is probably a sign you are drinking too much carrot juice. You're getting way more beta-carotene than you need, so the excess is building up in the fat layer under your skin. As overdoses go, this one is pretty harmless, but you should probably cut back on the carrots for a while.
