Positive and Negative effects of Orange juice for Acne

Natural, 100-percent orange juice with pulp may be beneficial for acne. Orange juice is a good source of vitamin C, an essential ingredient in the building blocks of skin — collagen and elastin. This nutrient is also a potent antioxidant, helping to fight free radicals that cause damage and increase inflammation that can make acne worse. Vitamin C also inhibits formation of arachidonic acid, which is a major cause of inflammation in cells and tissue, according to Terry J. Dubrow, a skin specialist, plastic surgeon and co-author of “The Acne Cure.” The fiber in the pulp of orange juice also helps to keep blood glucose and insulin levels stable; insulin promotes inflammation in your body.

Negative Effects of Orange Juice for Acne

If you have an allergy to citrus fruits, such as oranges, drinking orange juice for acne may be harmful. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, food allergies may affect adult acne. A food allergy may cause symptoms such as itching and swelling in your mouth, hives or shortness of breath. If you’ve ever experienced any of these symptoms after eating oranges or drinking orange juice, you should consult an allergist for a proper diagnosis. In the meantime, it’s best to avoid drinking orange juice to get rid of your pimples if you have a citrus fruit allergy.
