I had this same reaction.  I was eating large amounts of oranges, juicing mostly, and my skin freaked out, totally.  But I was way past the detox phase, so I knew it wasnt that, and they were organic as well.  I took them out of my diet, and recently tried again, and the same thing happened.  I get flushed and hot as well.  I have read recently that oranges can cause a rosacea flare up, so maybe you have rosacea, and its never been a problem for you until you introduced large amounts of a flare up causing food, like oranges. 

How is your skin now after a few weeks?

You have/had rosacea, Cara? me too. 

Has it got any better?

Yes, I have had Rosacea on and off for a few years now, and I have done more experimenting with my diet over the last year, and have found that INDEED it is a high amount of VitC that causes it to flare up.  I was doing a lot of mono mealing and noticed a lot of flare ups with that, so I have been trying to counter high vit C foods with high Calcium foods, like green juice.  I LOVE fresh OJ, I will juice 8-12 or so oranges and have it as a meal, now I will do that, but I will also include some kale juice, too.  But honestly, I have not been drinking as much oj, because of the flare ups.  A while back, I started taking high amounts of VitC pills to avoid an unwanted possible pregnancy (it will interfere in the production of progesterone) and had been Rosacea free for MONTHS, and BOOM, it was back and bright and hot as ever.  So then I knew for sure.  Looking into the foods that cause flare ups, too, I found that many high VitC  fruits, and also bananas and avocado will flare it up (doh!!!)

Rosacea also has a lot to do with body alkalinity, and oxygen in the blood.  I have asthma, so therefore am predisposed to Rosacea.  Here is a link to an article on it, and a list of best foods and worst, some do not pertain to the raw vegan diet, but its a guideline

Best of luck, just be patient.  I know it sucks.

(BTW, I have never had an unwanted pregnancy since discovering the VitC trick)

are you eating anything else when you eat the acid fruits?

Thanks for the response Cara. I don't have rosacea, I think it was just my skin getting stuff out of my system or just telling me to stop eating so many oranges. After a FEW WEEKS, not a few days, my skin is finally pretty much back to normal. 

 

Joyce- I was eating oranges and maybe some lettuce. Never Again! :) 

My skin has been loads better ever since I cut out oranges and tomatoes and minimized dates and overt fats. I'd love to learn more about the candida connection. Do you have resources on this?
I'm overt-fat-free 5 days a week. Not seeing a clear connection.
