When asked how to get the perfect fake tan, Alessandra Ambrosio told Cosmopolitan, "I'm loving the Victoria's Secret Daily Glow Gradual Tan Moisturizer SPF 15. I start using it about a week before a big event. It's pretty much goof-proof and it has SPF 15 so I look glowy and stay protected from the sun at the same time."

On her hair, Lindsay Ellingson says, "I never, ever blow dry my hair unless I'm working. I use Paul Mitchell leave in conditioner, which is really great. I also try not to shampoo every day. It can feel gross, but it really does help."

For glowing skin, former Victoria's Secret Angel Selita Ebanks says, "A quick 20 minute steam at the gym a couple of times a month will ensure you get a natural glow all summer." If a little steam is all it takes to get skin like Selita's, we're in. 


Rosie Huntington-Whiteley keeps her signature lips in tip top shape by exfoliating and keeping them hydrated. "I use Lucas' Papaw Ointment religiously, especially when traveling. I also like to use a lip scrub, but when I don't have one, I just rub the edge of my towel to buff away dead skin after I wash my face," she tells Elle
