What's the first thing you think of when you hear "Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue"? We're betting it's not "ooh, cute swimsuits."


We recently caught up with model Chrissy Teigen who agreed. "There's not a lot of suit in the magazine these days," says Teigen. "If there's any less ... it's not going to be a normal magazine!"


And with all that near-nakedness comes a lot of preparation.


"The day before the shoot is all about the skin," she says. "You get exfoliated from head to toe to help prep for your spray tan."

    I am all about lasering the hair off. Not having scratchy legs is fabulous.

    I can't imagine shaving twice a day. My hat is off to you Chrissy Teigen!! Being ignorant about spray tanning, I'm probably missing a vital key here, but why not just wax? Does the irritation affect the tan?
