If there’s one thing a bride wants on her big day, it’s picture-perfect skin. But aside from plenty of beauty sleep and a well-balanced diet, celebrities have introduced some out-of-the-box ways to get their complexion in tip-top shape before saying “I do.”

Kim Kardashian
To prep for her highly anticipated wedding to Kanye West this weekend, Kim Kardashian paid a visit to Lancer Dermatology, run by Dr. Harold Lancer (the man behind Victoria Beckham’s age-defying beauty), for a stem-cell facial. Starting at $550, the treatment entails a three-step process of cleansing, exfoliating, and extracting, followed by a rose oil–coated sheet mask. Then along with an LED light, Lancer’s collagen-boosting Lift Serum Intense ($275; lancerskincare.com) is applied, which uses plant stem-cell technology to instantly lift, smooth, and tighten.

Even more buzz-worthy was Kate Middleton’s skincare regimen. Prior to the royal wedding, Middleton relied on Heaven Bee Venom Mask ($131; heavenskincare.com) by Deborah Mitchell. Like its name suggests, the product boasts bee venom (referred to as “nature’s Botox”) as the main ingredient, Manuka honey, and other skin-smoothing elements like shea butter, rose and lavender essential oils to control facial muscles and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Doutzen Kroes
Victoria’s Secret model Doutzen Kroes opted for Ling Chan’s Oxygen Plasma Rejuvenating Facial at Ling Skincare Spa for her special day. “It’s the perfect no-risk pre-wedding treatment to help brides-to-be achieve an immediate and long-lasting healthy, glowing complexion by infusing oxygen carrying molecules to revive skin cells,” Chan tells us. The benefits? “Sufficient oxygen flow in the skin will increase blood circulation, increase cellular metabolism, reduce sensitivity, and eliminate undesired acne flare-ups, insuring a clear, glowing complexion for wedding photos and the big day,” she says.

Gwyneth Paltrow
The woman in charge of Gwyneth Paltrow’s ageless complexion, facialist Sonya Dakar, gets her clients camera-ready with a six-week bridal boot camp. “I become the trainer for their skin and get it into shape with a series of fitness facials, custom phytic acid peels, diamond peels, oxygen treatment, and red and blue light treatments,” Dakar tells us. The rules? “No gluten, no dairy, no yeast, and they need to do their at-home regimen two times daily,” she explains. "This consists of a customized assortment of Sonya Dakar NutraSphere products that I personally select for them based on their skin type and any specific problem areas that we want to target.”
