I never heard anyone die from the stuff?...
In fact it's known to KILL some Virus.. sooooooo... perhaps, YA .. it does KILL something.. hahahaaa..
It's good for skin & wrinkles.maybe even scars... as it plumps up the Epidermal layers but only temporarily.. it has been incorporated in creams, lotions, scrubs... but ORANGE does come in FORMS like anything else...Oxidated or UnOXIDATED- Vitamin C complex is sort of good for skin.. but not for severe Acne in general..
That's what we're looking for on the TOPICAL LEVEL...
as Plain Orange Juice might be good for OILY SKIN TYPES - used as an absorbant toner only, but that's as far as it goes for PLAIN OL' ORANGE JUICE....
Hum... I see. Thank you
What about drinking it though

You are so right. I have become terrified to eat anything I was super thirsty and was too paranoid to drink my beloved orange juice I got too paranoid to eat a piece of garlic bread today and I wouldn't finish my salad because I put too much dressing on it and thought it might break me out. gah

A stress free mind is a less oily face. werd =D
But yeah, the things you eat define the quality of your skin and complexion as well. Lack of nutrition shows up on your skin and makes it unhealthy.
But don't get scared of food. I've noticed more skinny people have acne than fat people. just a correlation, maybe it's because skinny people don't get enough nutrients and an abundance is far better than a deficit?
I'm just mumbling
Finally Clear! < Click link for regimen
People always think the key to fighting acne is to avoid foods, but in actually it's usually what they're NOT eating that's causing it to happen. It made no sense to start with omitting the small things that MAY cause acne for SOME people. Start with the basics of nutrition. You're a human, not an accumulation of minor problems from every person! Not everyone reacts to the same foods. Not everyone has issues with wheat and such foods. Start with the basics of good nutrition and THEN see what happens, omit foods once you feel something is not working, but don't base a diet off of what to avoid, that will make you malnourished and very depressed when you have nothing left to eat! It is true that some people have issues with some foods, but remember, try it for yourself first
Get to the root of the problem, because acne has a relentless and endless arsenal on the surface and it is sadistic.
Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group. Omega 3 fatty acids can also help to keep the production of androgens under control. Androgens are hormones that influence sebum production and are particularly active during adolescence, which is possibly why many teenagers suffer from acne. Androgen excess may provoke or aggravate acne by inducing seborrhea (sebum). In women, androgen disorders are frequently suspected when acne is accompanied by hirsutism or irregularities of the menstrual cycle. In men, however, acne may be the only sign of androgen excess.

But drinking a lot of juice may pack on a few lbs of fat.

I will also breakout after having too much of other juices I wasn't tested for, recently guanaba and passion fruit. And it's hard to know how much is too much.
Also, it's always better to eat the whole fruit. I eat fruit all day everyday without it causing a problem. But I can't drink lemon in water all day or I'll break out.
[ 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!

Juice bought in the store is not great. You'd be better off spending your money on a bag of oranges.
Why? Juice is pausterized so it's not as nutrient/enzyme dense. Plus, there's less fibre which slows down the absorption of sugar. And also, I know a bit about how those juice factories are run...lots of near-rotting oranges are thrown in and juiced. Not very appetizing.
