The Beauty Treatments Runway Models Swear By

Once again, it’s that time of year when the fashion elite appear in droves in New York City for an eight-day style marathon. The editors, bloggers, street-style stars, and photographers are all out in full force, ready to behold what we’ll be wearing come spring 2015. And, let’s not forget the hardworking models.
For many of them, NYFW kicks off a month of their most grueling hours thanks to endless fittings, early call times, and late-night parties. While the catwalkers are young and genetically gifted, getting ready for runway season does require some effort. Showing up backstage with raggedy nails or zits is just not an option. Plus, with all of the makeup and heat-styling tools they have to endure (in a single day!), it’s better to start with everything — nails, hair and skin — in tip-top shape.
So, what exactly do these ladies do to prep for showtime? We asked a few busy models about the treatments and services they rely on to look amazing before they hit the runway — and surprise! — they’re not as high maintenance as you might think. Keep reading to get the scoop on their favorite beauty spots in the city.
