Feel your skin. Go on: run your hands gently over your whole face. Feeling rough, dry and bumpy? It's time for Soap&Glory's new Greatest Scrub of All. It's a fantastic new facial exfoliator that buffs off dead skin cells without scratching or pulling the skin, since it contains tiny polishing spheres that pop open when you press them - meaning it never feels too coarse. But if time is ticking and you can't get to the shops, S&G's founder Marcia Kilgore, gave BRIDESMAGAZINE.CO.UK this excellent tip:

"To enhance your complexion before the big day, squirt a little fresh lemon juice into your favourite facial cleanser to boost its natural brightening power and exfoliating action."

Why? "Because lemon juice contains citric acid, one of the five alpha-hydroxy-acids that dissolve the glue that keeps dead cells stuck to your skin."

And while you're squeezing, try some mixed into a facemask, or even in a body scrub for added polish power and a zesty kick to your morning shower. Now that's what we call a wedding-day wake-up call!
