I know that rubbing orange peels on a acne scar can help it fade but I don't have oranges will clementines work?

In brief: Not a scar treatment
As a dermatologist I have never come across this in my training.
Scars are not treated this easily; if they were they were not true scars to begin with and would have improved on their own regardless. By the way we can only improve scars depending on type and severity - never able to treat 100%. Good luck.

In brief: Citrus
I would think that any citrus peel would have a similar effect.
Essential oils of citrus would probably be even more effective. You can get essential oil of orange from this website www.Docssuperoils.Com at wholesale prices. Retail prices at the local health food store.

In brief: Limonene
Limonene is the extract from orange peel it kills germs but can be taken orally 2drops or use 1drop with moisturizer yes clementine has these oils in them.
