Do oranges help with acne? They contain acid, and vitamin C, so are they good? Actually, they're clementines, my parents got like a ton of them today, so I'm just curious. Also, I'm definitely not allergic to them.

We don't know if oranges help eliminate acne. There's no cure for acne. But anyways, yep, you should eat lots of oranges. It's one of the healthiest foods out there.

A few users have reported severe reactions to citrus fruit. Obviously, we can't tell you how YOU will react to citrus fruit.

^Yes, what rakbs said. Citrus fruit like oranges, tangerines, grapefruit and key limes cause me to break out in cysts.

Vitamin C is good for acne, and you need it all day long. But there are better sources which provide even more benefit. Broccoli, for example.

Clementines are tangerines, btw. I think they are less acidic, but they still cause me to break out in cysts.
