How to get ready for holiday like a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

Elsa Hosk and Alessandra Ambrosio

This week, Victoria’s Secret premiered its first-ever Swim Special, showing the Angels in action on the beaches of Puerto Rico. Already, the newest Angel Elsa Hosk can’t wait for her next trip. “It’s so cold right now in New York, all I want to do is escape again,” she said with a laugh. With spring break on the horizon, we asked her for some travel beauty pointers: “Coconut oil I love just for body, for hair, for face, for everything and argan oil, too,” she said. “I’m easy. On vacation I like to just do nothing, leave the hair, just saltwater, and just be as natural as possible.” Fellow Angel Alessandra Ambrosio also takes an au naturel approach. “I don’t even take high heels with me! I’ll bring flats and comfy clothes,” she says. As for scoring an even glow after a long winter, timing is everything, she explains. “It’s about going in the sun but making sure you’re not going to get burned on the first day. Even if you want to get tan, use sunblock and make sure you’re not in the sun in the really strong hours.” Of course, it’s not all sun and sand for these ladies. “I just came back from Brazil for Carnival so right now it’s all work for me,” Ambrosio says.
