The Skin Treatment Celebs Are Relying On to Prep for the Met Gala Red Carpet
Bella Hadid, Camila Mendes, Joan Smalls, and Lili Reinhart have all relied on LED skin treatments to get ready for the event.
It's the first Monday of May, and you know what that means: Celebrities are currently doing the most to prepare for the Met Gala red carpet. And thanks to Instagram we all get to witness what they've been up to in the way of beauty treatments. This year it's clear that the LED light trend is still going strong.

Two of Riverdale's leading actresses went with similar treatments to get ready for the event. Lili Reinhart posted a photo from Joanna Vargas NYC of an LED light bed. Her co-star Camila Mendes visited Tracie Martyn for some red light therapy and (based on a selfie on her story), spent time in Martyn's Ruby Red Light Bed. (Rihanna did the same in the lead-up to last year's gala.)
Joan Smalls and Bella Hadid visited celeb aesthetician Joanna Czech, who's known to give her clients personalized treatments. For Hadid, she went with red light therapy and what looks like the 111SKIN Celestial Black Diamond Lifting and Firming Mask, which she's used on Kim Kardashian. Czech treated Smalls to both red and purple light therapy, which also contains blue light for keeping skin clear of breakouts.
There's a reason top skin pros keep going back to LED–specifically red LED–therapy on their celeb clients. It's associated with anti-aging benefits, thanks to its potential to protect skin's existing collagen and elastin and boost collagen production, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Luckily, since the LED trend has blown up there are tons of options for anyone looking for an at-home alternative (ranging from full-on beds to portable devices like Joovv Go) so you can get red carpet-worthy skin—even if your invites keep getting lost in the mail.
