[QUOTE=Azelis77]I know for a fact that sugar and fruits cause acne. When I came to college I did not know why I was breaking out so much than I did for the past four years. It took me four months to realize that it was my new high sugar diet that I started in college. I was always eating ice cream, cookies, grapes, orange juice, and apples. I did eat vegetables and protein but I now that when I look back I knew I was eating Too much sugar
One day I decided, that I should stop eating poorly so I can improve my acne. I stopped eating dairy but I still had acne. Then I stopped eating chips and I still had acne. Then finally I gave up the ice cream, oreos, Butterfingers and other sugary things. When I did that I no longer got one single pimple. But I gave into my sugar craving one day and had eight sheets of Honey grahm crackers and orange juice. The next day I broke out.
Doubters I am here to tell you sugar cause acne. Maybe not for a few but I am almost positive it does for the majority of all acne sufferes. I have never known one acne suffer who has had a low sugar diet. I am not saying everyone who has a high sugar diet will break out because your genes do play a role.[/QUOTE]

You are absolutely correct. Orange Juice may produce a reaction in some, while Oranges usually will not, unless they are allergic to citrus. I don't drink non-100% fruit juice, sodas, etc. I very rarely even drink 100% fruit juice just because it is too sweet for me (LOL). However, others will argue that it lacks fiber which is what may cause the breakouts. Now if you were to make a smoothie blending the whole fruits more fruit juice/smoothies would definately be beneficial.

I personally don't breakout too bad from pure sugar, but I do get sugar pimples (tiny pimples that go away rather quickly once I stop eating the sugar). What really kicks my butt are the grains, particularly gluten grains (wheat, barely, rye, and oats).

Anyway, I'm thrilled that you were able to help yourself and I'm glad you're here on this board =)

Best of wishes
