At one point, the former Hills star slathered on the sun tan lotion and lay back on a towel to top up her tan.
Despite minimal make-up and her long light brown hair pulled up in a loose ponytail, the effect was stunning.
The star last year revealed a few of her beauty secrets, telling Now magazine: ‘I always take a cold shower to wake me up and close my pores. Then I moisturise my face.'

'LA is so competitive that you want to look your best, though, so I work hard at it. I exercise and eat healthily.'
She also gave Shape magazine advice on how to achieve her 'beachy hair' look, revealing she washes her long locks twice a week and using dry shampoo in between and uses Moroccan hair oil on the ends.

Audrina has a little time on her hands these days after her reality show Audrina ended last year after proving a ratings flop with audiences.
When it emerged the show was being canned she said: 'We finished in April and I kind of decided I wanted to take some time off from reality. I want to do something more like acting or hosting.'
