From sweet spa treatments and eyelash extensions to the exclusive spray tan provider for “Dancing with the Stars,” IECSC, the Spa and Wellness Show, inspired New York City Sunday through Tuesday at the Javits Convention Center, and the Long Island Spa Treatments Examiner was on hand to bear witness.

In collaboration with IBS New York, the International Esthetics, Cosmetics and Spa Conference brought the latest in spa treatments, along with innovative skincare and beauty trends to over 60,000 attendees over a three-day period. Beauty, spa and medical-spa professionals from the tri-state area gathered to learn about the newest beauty products and cutting-edge techniques to expand spa and beauty businesses and offer clients the best of the best.

IECSC New York is by far the largest spa show in the Northeast and the premiere spa and wellness event of the country. The atmosphere is serene and peaceful, even amongst the vendors clamoring to make a sale, quite a difference from its neighbor, IBS New York, where the energy can be felt from the eaves of the Javits Center.

The array of new beauty and spa products unveiled at IECSC New York is too vast to list here, however the trend for 2014 is clearly that of organic, natural beauty products used in a holistic spa environment such as that from Éminence Organic Skin Care, FarmHouse Fresh, Ilike Organic Skin Care and the Ageless Secret to name just a few.

Capturing the eyes of all that past its booth was the delicious display of spa goodies from Feeling Smitten, visible in the slideshow, full of soaks, body polishes and scrubs displayed as ice cream cones and cupcakes, truly a sight to behold.

What’s a spa show without spray tan? And what better way to celebrate the season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars” than with South Seas, the paraben-free spray tan and body care brand, which is the official spray tan used on the dancing bodies of DWTS.

IECSC was truly inspirational, as this year’s theme suggested.
