If there is ever a day that we all want to look our absolute best, it’s our wedding day. So, before you take that plunge and walk down the aisle in front of family and friends to marry the love of your life, you’ll want to ensure you have that picture-perfect skin for all those photos.
But aside from getting a good night’s sleep and enjoying a well-balanced diet, there are more direct ways to ensure your skin is plump, clear and bright. So today, we’re going to be taking a page out of the book of some fabulous celebs, looking at the treatments and skincare regimes they undertook for their big day.
Here’s how you can get that same paparazzi-ready skin for your wedding day.
Although the lavish couple split in 2021, Kim Kardashian wed Kayne West back in 2014 with one of the most opulent weddings of the year at a mind-blowing venue in Florence. Kimye spent a whopping £6 million on their wedding weekend, with Kim’s wedding dress alone costing £178,000.

So, it’s no surprise that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star opted for high-quality skincare treatments to prepare for such an important day. She paid a visit to a dermatologist and opted for a stem-cell facial. This is a three-step process that involves cleansing, exfoliating and extracting, followed by a rose-oil-coated sheet mask, resulting in incredible anti-ageing results. The proteins in the formula help strengthen skin tissue in the deeper layers of the skin and improve collagen production to boost elasticity and strength.
For a similar treatment and fantastic result, try Dr LEVY Stem Cell Line. Dr Phillip Levy is an industry leader in non-surgical skincare products, and the stem cell line has been shown to improve skin density by over 12% and decrease wrinkle depth by 26%. In addition, these products boost your stem cell’s ability to fight off the signs of ageing, reversing the signs of ageing already present.
Chemical Peels and Facials
Actress Priyanka Chopra is known for her beautiful, flawless skin. Her facialist broke down her top tips for any bride wanting to look their best on their wedding day, and, like Kim K, it’s all about the facials.

Having the right treatments leading up to the big day is essential. Priyanka’s facialist recommends a chemical peel to tackle those pores well before the wedding day. At Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we can provide you with chemical peel treatments that can reduce lines and wrinkles, as well as plump and restore your skin’s radiance.
Once your skin is in a better state, it’s time to introduce hydrating and plumping facials to add an instant glow and take care of any underlying puffiness; for example, a Hydrafacial. This treatment leaves skin brighter and refreshed, unclogging pores and removing dead skin and dirt. It combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, antioxidant protection and red light therapy to create a complexion worthy of a celebrity wedding.
IPL Photo Rejuvenation
Brooklyn Beckham married his sweetheart, Nicola Peltz, in April 2022, and the blushing bride had a whole host of skincare prep to ensure she looked her best on the big day. In fact, celebrity facialist Lena Bratschi even set up a spa in Peltz’s home to provide her with the treatments she desired ahead of her wedding.

One of the treatments Bratschi implemented into her skincare routine was LED therapy, which promotes the healthy building of collagen as well as hydrates and nourishes the skin. If you’re looking for something similar, try our IPL Photo Rejuvenation. This non-invasive treatment targets skin damage without disrupting the surface and requires minimal downtime, meaning you can undergo treatment closer to your wedding than other facials.
During the procedure, light waves are used to specifically target coloured particles such as melanin in sunspots and freckles and haemoglobin in broken capillaries. As a result, this treatment improves sun-damaged complexions and reduces hyperpigmentation. Additionally, the procedure stimulates collagen and elastin production in your skin, leading to a more even, firmer, and smoother complexion.
LA-based dermatologist Karyn Grossman has a plethora of star-studded clients, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Linda Evangelista. She gave the low-down on the kinds of treatments that her A-list brides underwent in the months prior to their weddings.
She recommends anti-wrinkle injections three months before the big day. This is because she believes brides should start the heavy-duty skin treatments early, like how you would practice your hair and makeup before the wedding to avoid any nasty surprises.
Because there is a possibility of bruising, you shouldn’t get anti-wrinkle injections close to the actual wedding day. Filling in the lines around the jawline is essential to getting that smooth, wedding-ready skin, but do it with plenty of time.
At Aesthetic Skin Clinic, our highly trained medical professionals can provide you with anti-wrinkle injections. This treatment blocks the nerve impulses from reaching the injected area, causing the muscles to relax and allowing the skin to remain smooth and unwrinkled.
It seems that the key to looking celebrity-ready for your big day is planning your treatments well in advance. Start with the more invasive, intensive treatments months before the wedding, then switch to facials as you approach your big day. You can talk to one of our consultants at Aesthetic Skin Clinic to find out more about our extensive range of treatments and decide what’s best suited to you.
Whether it’s surgical or non-surgical, facials or chemical peels, we can help. If you’re looking for a cosmetic skin clinic in Guernsey, a cosmetic skin clinic in Jersey or a cosmetic skin clinic in Belfast, contact Aesthetic Skin Clinic today.
