My name is Rebecca.
Beke (pronounced bk) Skincare is set in a white garden in the grounds of a converted Chapel. Beke is a Hungarian word meaning peace…This is what you are promised when you visit.
The white garden resembles peace,calm and tranquility.The motif the maple leaf resembles our skin ,bodies and minds ever changing through the seasons of life.
I look forward to caring for you and offering you peace and tranquility
Beke a peaceful haven in Capel where you will receive individual beauty treatments in a tranquil setting.
Whatever sort of day I’ve had, I leave Beke feeling relaxed and refreshed. The summer house is elegant and very chilled out. Beccy is an excellent beautician – quietly friendly, always happy to advise, never pushy, never rushed. Being the only customer makes every appointment feel like a special treat. Highly recommended!
I love going to Beke's. It is an oasis of calm and tranquility on these dull, muddy winter days. From the moment I step in I am transported to an altogether softer, warmer and more glamorous world, pity I ever have to leave and get back to reality"
Having been a client of Beccy's/Beke for many years I can highly recommend a visit to her salon. Beccy's service is always friendly and relaxed yet professional. I always leave her salon feeling thoroughly pampered.
The natural process of aging, environment, and lifestyle choices can impact your skin’s level of dryness.
As we age, the activity of sebaceous (oil) glands begins to slow, causing the skin’s natural hydrators to decline over the years. Aging may also cause blood flow to skin to decrease, causing a drop in oil production.
Cold winds and cold temperatures can dry out skin, which is why you may notice “seasonal” dryness. This also applies to air conditioning and forced air heating. Warm, dry air acts like a sponge, soaking up moisture from everything it touches.
Prolonged exposure to sun can also cause water evaporation from skin and contribute to dryness.
There are many causes behind the formation of breakouts.
Stress, excess oil, excess skin cells, bacteria, hormonal fluctuations, and genetics are all factors that can contribute to acne.
Working with your professional skin therapist, you can help control the factors that contribute to acne. Through your Face Mapping® skin analysis and professional treatment and prescription, your professional skin therapist can help regulate sebaceous glands, promote exfoliation to help shed skin cells to prevent clogging of the follicle, kill acne-causing bacteria, reduce stress, and help soothe inflammation associated with breakouts.
Ingrown hairs (Pseudofolliculitis barbae) appear on skin when hair is cut, and the hair grows back in at an improper angle.
The process of cutting the end of the hair shaft through shaving can force hair back into its follicle, or even cause hair to double over on itself, re-entering the same follicle and growing inward instead of exiting the surface. The hair shaft can also grow and enter another follicle.
The body recognizes this ingrown hair as a foreign body (similar to the way it would a splinter), and triggers an inflammatory response that includes redness, pain, and a raised area that resembles a pimple that can fill with pus.
Simply put, shaving is a form of mechanical exfoliation.
Shaving triggers a high level of visible irritation on the skin and can serve as a form of over-exfoliation and lead to a compromised lipid barrier. When the skin’s lipid barrier is compromised, there is an increase in moisture loss, which leads to dry, scaly, cracked, sensitized skin.
Skin dryness can increase skin’s susceptibility to a various number of shaving concerns, including Pseudofolliculitis barbae (ingrown hairs and razor bumps), razor burn and sensitivity.
Absolutely not. Sun exposure is never good for skin.
While it may seem the sun provides a temporary “drying” effect, sebaceous glands will fire into overdrive to help replace lost oil. The result: more oil on the surface than before. Shielding skin from sun exposure with an oil-controlling SPF such as Oil Free Matte Block SPF20 will actually help control oil production and maintain a matte finish.
Following a prescribed regimen that helps control oil production will help minimize your risk for breakouts.
