On one of the most photographed days of your life, the last thing you want is a pimple popping up that even the best makeup artist can't cover. A few months before the big day, lock in an appointment for a facial at one of the top spots in town — and get a treatment that's sure to soothe any trouble spots. You may even want to make an appointment monthly to make sure your skin is in pristine condition! With the perfect blend of organic products — and a little help from science — you'll be all set to sport a flawless face down the aisle, looking just as much the glowing bride you should on your wedding day.
Spa at Viceroy Miami
This sanctuary sitting in the heart of downtown is a favorite for a few reasons, and it won't be hard to see why as you're lounging in the floating library. Philippe Starck's version of a relaxation lounge is equal parts Marie Antoinette-chic and Japanese minimalism, topped off by sweeping views of Biscayne Bay below. Treatments here range from basic hydrating masks to intense technology-focused facials, but you can't go wrong with any of them — especially the organic facial. Customized for your skin type, the treatment incorporates seasonal fruits and veggies flown in from Hungary that are blended with the country's hot thermal spring water — for a handmade facial treatment that's one of the freshest you can find.
Carillon Miami Beach
When it comes to discovering the secret to glowing skin, Carillon Miami Beach has it. You can look flawless in just under 50 minutes — thanks to the Skin Solution Clarins facial at Carillon. Working with pure plant extracts and customized healing facial techniques, this treatment can fix everything from large pores to pigmentation issues for instant results that will shine through in your wedding day pics.
Thompson Miami Beach
Make a day out of a spa trip at the Thompson, relaxing on the 10th floor rooftop and squeezing in a hardcore fitness sesh on the spa deck. When you're ready to get your glow on, opt for the Transformation Signature Facial that will do just that — transform your skin — fixing free radical damage and repairing its protective barrier. In simple speak, the treatment uses a sugar cane-infused exfoliant — scrubbing away dead skin layers so you'll literally glow as you walk out the door and get ready to walk down the aisle.
The Biltmore Spa
Everyone can use a little brightening up and the Biltmore Spa's Correcting Brightening Facial will have you looking instantly more illuminated sans makeup. The treatment starts at the top and works its way down your neck, décolleté, and hands with a blend of skin-boosting botanicals. This is followed by a multi-acid peel and rice cooling mask for the ultimate pick-me-up — taking a little over an hour in total. Read real brides' reviews here!
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Miami
You may have heard about oxygen and diamonds being used in facials, but if there was ever a time to try this trend, it's now. The Illuminating Oxygen Facial at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami is a perfect treatment to make your skin dewy and soft, and it works with any skin type. Get ready for a cooling effect as pressurized oxygen dives through your skin's surface for a result that is just what you need pre-wedding —: a picture-perfect complexion.
