Avocado (The good kind of fat)

Not only do we love avocado's but the oleic acid (which is the good fat) makes for a healthy heart and may just also help you burn those pre-wedding calories! The fatty acids in avocado's have a natural healing agent. If you mix an avocado with 62ml of olive oil and 15ml of lemon juice and apply from root to tip, it makes for a perfect mask for healthy replenished head of hair. Don't forget to rinse it out after 15 minutes!

Ground Oats

Cheers- to feeling full and satisfied after a hearty bowl of oatmeal, with the added benefit of lower blood cholesterol, of course! If you are a bride-to-be suffering with a sensitive skin, a ground oats face mask will be the perfect exfoliant to get that glow going. Mix your ground oats with water until it forms a paste, apply it to your skin, let it set for a five minutes and then rinse it off. Easy Peasy.
