Check out the photos of Bar Refaeli's bikini mud bath below!

Bar Refaeli's model posing skills are no accident. She tells British GQ, "I've learned how to do this. I study all of my pictures. Which turn of the hip is sexier, which toe to curl or leg to straighten. I know every bone."

The 26-year-old, who recently broke her arm, fondly recalls modeling in her childhood. "One of my first memories was asking my mother every day when my next shoot was going to be. I'd skip school to do it; I loved nothing more than being in front of the camera. I didn't want it to stop."

Though she's traveled worldwide with her career there's still no place like home for Bar Refaeli. "It's so wonderful to be here back in my home town," she says. :I woke up in my own bed and tonight I'll sleep on my own pillow. I love this city. I'm glad I can shine a different light [on Israel]. When some people think about Israel, they think that we're hiding in shelters all day long, afraid that we are going to have rockets falling on us."

A recent visit to the Dead Sea inspired Bar Refaeli to try out the mud's famed beauty benefits. The model posted the following pictures to her Twitter page on August 10 writing, "*muddy* but feels good!! DEAD SEA- if you haven't been... well, sucks for you!"
