wraps

For luminous, lingerie-ready skin, just add honey. At Carmel Valley Ranch— the grown-up version of sleep-away camp—onsite beehives and lavender fields provide the signature ingredients for the spa’s treatment menu. Try the Bee Beautiful body wrap—an application of warm lavender oil followed by an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory honey-calendula scrub. Let the brew steep on the skin in a toasty foil cocoon for 15 minutes before the grand finale: a relaxing full-body massage with rich shea butter. Honeymoon, here you come. // CARMEL VALLEY RANCH (Carmel), carmelvalleyranch.com

peels

According to Presidio Heights aesthetician Veronica O’Sullivan, PCA Skin peels are gaining popularity as a radiance booster for brides. The gentle, yet super effective, miracle potions— made of low-dose exfoliating acids—garnered a full page of editorial kudos in Vogue’s May 2013 issue. For optimum glow, O’Sullivan recommends a six-month custom regimen that alternates deep-cleaning facials and rejuvenating peels as a complement to a healthy lifestyle. But plan wisely: The in-demand skin care expert books new clients more than 90 days in advance. // AESTHETICS BY VERONICA

Seems you can get most anything from a truck these days, so why not a bit of pampering? SF beauty maven Sarah LaShelle recently launched Pretty Parlor A Go Go, a roving salon with hardwood floors and a faux pressed-tin ceiling. LaShelle is bringing hairstyling, makeup, and waxing services to Google and Facebook campuses, music festivals and, yes, Northern California weddings. // prettyparloragogo.com
