Relaxed Beauty

The American Spa team has taken time away from our usual rounds of spa visits to bring you the latest updates from Mercedes-Benz Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Week in New York City. Not only did we snap inspiring makeup looks and nail designs showing the creative range of industry pros—and what a range of trends we saw—we were also pleasantly surprised by a newcomer backstage, spa skincare. Celebrity makeup artist Gucci Westman brought along Éminence Organic Skin Care products to prep models at Rag & Bone, treating complexions to the Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream, which debuts next month. Products from the Jurlique line made an appearance backstage at Honor, where the calming, moisturizing formulas provided just the boost models' stressed skin needed. The week isn’t over yet, so we can’t wait to see what other spa brands we can find backstage.

Fashion week gives back to spas too by inspiring stylish staff uniforms. For more, check out Project Runway.
