How to prepare for a date:
Prior to special nights out with her husband, Doutzen Kroes focuses on having silky smooth skin. "I like to do a scrub. If I'm on the beach, I'll put olive oil on my body and then put on sand, and then go into the ocean," she says. "But if I don't have the beach by me, I have a great Lolita scrub."
How to prepare for a vacation:
Miranda Kerr always packs a brush in her carry-on, but not for her hair. "I keep a body brush with me when traveling. Dry body brushing every morning is a great way to get the circulation going, get rid of dead skin cells, aid in lymphatic drainage, and keep your skin smooth all over," she says.

How to prepare for your wedding:
You should always play up your best feature on your wedding day, which is why Lily Aldridge kept the spotlight on her hair. "Don't get it cut the day before or the day of your wedding. Get it cut a week before. And get your color a week before," she says. "You have to plan these things so the day of your wedding you don't have orange hair or a bob."
How to prepare for the holidays:

When all eyes are on her décolletage, Alessandra Ambrosio (who models the $3.5 million Fantasy Bra) makes sure her skin is ready. "Whatever I put on my face, I'll put it right here on my body," says Ambrosio, motioning to the area between her breasts and her chin. "Every time I shower, I have to put on moisturizer or oil."
How to prepare for the show:
After getting a hair mask and a facial, Candice Swanepoel gives all the attention over to her abs. "I work out like a maniac. I'll box in the morning and then I'll do Pilates at night. I also do a lot with resistance bands," she says.
