Most likely not. Oranges are *very* good for your overall health, as are apples.

But, everyone is different.

Even if you eat them in exorbatant amounts, it shouldn't cause any inflammation or irritate your skin.

Apples are high in vitamin A which is good for your skin, and oranges are good for you too. They have a decent amount of carbohydrates in them, but mind you, they're simple carbs.

It's very well likely that you and your family are allergic to citrus fruits. It's also known to be hereditary.

This is not so. They have enough sugar in them that even two or three would have a high glycemic load.

Simple carbs are sugars. Also complex carbs aren't always processed, in fact the majority of them aren't. Some examples are: Whole Grain Rice and other grains, beans, potatos, corn and other vegetables.

Most of the simple carbs we eat are processed such as sodas, cookies, all the other bad things. Fruits are just part of a minority of simple carbs that are natural.

As JC said, Apples, as well as peaches, and many other fruits are low in the GI scale. Even pasta which everyone here seems to hate is in the middle and milk is low. Honey, which many here like is very high on the list. Also other factors come into play, for instance you can eat tons of mashed potatos at the holidays but it would affect few people because you are eating lot's of turkey with it. Protein eaten with carbs lowers its effect on spiking the blood sugar to the point where is doesn't really do anything.

There's no reason to avoid foods with a high GI because many are very nutritious. Even diabetics can eat them in moderation and their body is way more sensitive than someones who is predisposed to acne.
