Kelly Brook would ''never'' wear make-up on the beach.

The busty brunette - who recently got engaged to former Gladiator David McIntosh - prefers to opt for a casual look when she soaks up the sunshine by the sea.

She said: ''I never wear much make-up on the beach as your skin needs to breathe. I prefer to be more relaxed, which means no heels, no make-up, no jewellery.

''Just a great-fitting bikini from my new collection, a Panama hat, loose hair and off I go.''

Kelly doesn't put herself through an intense regime before bikini season but admits she is careful about what she eats.

She added to Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''I think every girl does [amp up their health and fitness regime] - I just try and eat well and work out when I can.

''I don't over think it though - I'm getting older so my body is changing. I embrace my figure and don't deprive myself.''
