We specialize in red meat. We love making, selling and eating meat. It’s our entire life. But we do realise that eating too much of it isn’t good. So we thought we produce a series to explore the health effects of red meat. In this article we want to look at the effects of skin and beauty in particular.
Is meat good for the skin?
Eating too much steak isn’t good for anything, but eating it in moderation can have some great benefits to your skin. Red meat is full of nutrients, including vitamins and zinc that will boost your health. The reason vegetarians tend to look so pale is because you can’t get these effects from vegetable based proteins. So our advise, and bear in mind we’re butchers, not doctors, is to eat in moderation for the best effects.
How about curing acne?
This is an interesting topic. Some websites according to our research state that eating red meat can cure acne. We don’t think that is completely accurate. But there is some truth to it when you look at the science behind these claims. The animal protein, if consumed too much can increase the level of oil which produces acne. But in moderation it can actually help to fight and even cure spots.
So like with everything else, a little bit of meat can help. Some suggest to put a juicy steak on your face to exfoliate, but as steak lovers we think that’s a waste of a tasty piece of meat!
You’re much better cutting up some aloe vera and spreading that over pimples. In fact, there’s a great article on curing acne with aloe vera. This seems a lot more useful than putting meat on your face to be honest.
The same website has a lot more tips you can use to achieve better looking skin. We constantly cook our sausages with oregano. Who would have known that oregano oil for acne works as well.
This is all great news for meat lovers. The science does suggest that eating a little can help you, but with anything else in life, moderation is the key. The benefit is that while most acne remedies are painful, boring or difficult. Eating tasty food is fun! The natural remedies mentioned here help and we’ve included the links just in case you are suffering from bad skin and want some further tips.
Next time, we’d like to discuss how meat can affect your ability to exercise. Does protein help with building muscle or does it just create fat. See you in the next article!
