The Many Benefits of European Style Facials

Urszula (Ula) Szumilas-Rapala, European-trained Medical Esthetician at local skincare and cosmetic medicine clinic, ArtMed, shares her view on the benefits of European style facials and self care.

“In today’s fast paced society, we often ignore the fact that our bodies and skin, just like our minds, also need caring for. A facial treatment can be a wonderful and relaxing tonic to our hectic everyday world: a holistic treatment that seeks to restore our inner balance by supporting the natural rhythm and harmony of our body. While there are many innovative ways of performing a facial, I believe in the classic European method. It begins with a soothing ambience of relaxing music, scent of the oils, a gentle touch, and perhaps a pleasant conversation focused on helping the client improve their knowledge of their skin condition.

When we are young, our skin replaces itself every 22 to 28 days, but the process of skin cell turnover slows down as we age. The classic facial is designed to boost our skin’s functions and metabolism, to increase blood circulation, improve oxygenation, brighten the complexion, smooth out the skin’s texture and fine lines, extract pore impurities (acne breakouts, milia), soothe skin sensitivity, slow premature aging,  reduce oiliness or hydrate dryness, detoxify, and rejuvenate, and finally, to stimulate the production of endorphins – the hormones responsible for happiness. After a classic European facial treatment, the skin appears dewy and radiant, and it feels softer. I recommend repeating the treatment with each season’s change to help the skin adjust to the changing weather conditions…”
