Brooks Nader Gives Behind-the-Scenes Look at Her SI Swimsuit Shoot

“Beauty never sleeps.”

Earlier this summer, Brooks Nader picnicked with her three sisters in New York City. Take a look at the spread, and you’ll see that the model/home decor guru spared no detail. So it’s no surprise that her preparation for her 2022 SI Swimsuit shoot in Montenegro was similarly meticulous. Nader shared a glimpse into her pre-shoot prep in this exclusive video. Cryotherapy, a salad recipe and more secrets are unveiled by the model who survived a Montenegrin boot camp training.

In preparation for her shoot, Nader attends a cryotherapy session. The extremely cold temperatures leave her skin glowing. The self-professed skincare buff also visits an LED infrared sauna to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and then gets a HydraFacial to cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate her face. As an extra treat she gets a massage to loosen up her body before the 10-hour flight to Montenegro. Nader does not hold back when it comes to her beauty regime.

Nader is just as vigilant about her diet, whipping up a veggie-filled salad. “I’m going to show you my go-to Asian chicken salad,” she says. But mysteriously, the salad contains no chicken. Here’s the recipe:

The Dressing


-rice vinegar
-organic soy sauce
-spicy sriracha
