The secret to Gisele BГјndchen's flowing mane? Saying bye to your hairbrush. вЂњAfter I apply conditioner, I pass my fingers through my hair and let it dry naturally,вЂќ she says. вЂњEvery once in awhile, I comb my hair in the shower, but I don't comb or brush after that.вЂќ Another surprising beauty secret: BГјndchen says she shares lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and toothpaste with her quarterback husband, Tom Brady. Stars-they're just like us.

It's hard not to stare at Brazilian bombshell Izabel Goulart-partly because of her perfect bone structure and partly because of her ethereal skin.
