As one of the world's hottest models, Bar Refaeli is no doubt showered with gifts from the beauty world on a daily basis.
But today, the 26-year-old model went back to basics, slathering herself in one of the most effective beauty treatments around - mud from the Dead Sea.
Bar posted two pictures on her Twitter page this morning which showed her covered from head to toe in the dark mud people travel from all over the world to sample.

The mud from the Dead Sea has long been heralded for its skin-enhancing properties, as well as its anti-inflammatory effects and revitalising capabilities thanks to the magnesium, bromide and various minerals it contains.
Bar's trip to the Dead Sea comes after pictures of her modelling swimwear from the Agua Bendita 2011 campaign were released.

Toned: The 26-year-old model shows off her incredible curves in a series of cute patterned two-pieces
From the notoriously difficult-to-wear monokinis, to a selection of pretty patterned triangle bikinis, Bar looks entirely stunning in the new campaign.
While the brunette beauty shines in the photographs, which show off her toned curves in all their glory, Bar said recently she doesn't 'go crazy' to maintain her figure.
She said: 'I don’t feel the need to be super skinny, but being in shape is important. But even if I wasn’t in this industry I would still want to look after myself and be healthy and keep my body in good condition.
Pretty in pink: Bar said in a recent interview she works hard to make sure she knows every angle of her body to ensure she gets perfect pictures
Angelic: In another shot, Bar dons a pretty frilled white bikini, and teams it with a cute fedora hat
'I always want to look my best on a shoot, or for a fashion show, so I do an extra couple of sit-ups the night before and I drink hot water with lemon to get my metabolism kick-started in the morning and to cleanse my system, but I don’t do anything crazy.”
'There’s nothing worse than forcing yourself to spend hours in the gym when you don’t enjoy it, so I do all sorts of things to work out because I get bored easily.'
Headgear: There's no inch of fat anywhere on Bar's trim figure, but she said she doesn't 'go crazy' to maintain her physique
