Adriana Lima won't leave the house without perfume.

The 34-year-old Brazilian model - who has been a Victoria's Secrets Angel since 2000 and is the face of the lingerie brands Bombshell scent - has admitted she always carries around a bottle of her favourite fragrance in her bag because she believes it gives her added "confidence", which leaves her feeling "sexy".

Speaking to PEOPLE magazine about the cosmetic product she can't leave without, the brunette beauty said: "I don't leave the house without having fragrance in my purse because it's something that tells a lot about the personality. It enhances your senses - it's not only visual, but it adds things like confidence. The confidence is sexy."

Adriana has revealed the secret behind her flawless complexion and radiant skin are oil-based products and steaming, which cleanses her pores.

She explained: "I have almond oil, argan, even vitamin E. I like to apply on my face -- it's a little bit thick but I like it. That's my secret.

"Sweating is great she says. I try to work out every day as much as I can. If you can't, go in a steam room or even just leave the hot shower on and treat the skin to the steam in the shower, so you can breathe and sweat a little bit."

However, the mother-of-two - who has Valentina, six, and three-year-old Sienna with her ex-husband Marko Jarić - believes the true value of beauty is within.

She said: "Beauty comes from inside out and believe in themselves, being confident, being honest, and respecting themselves and others -- that's beauty, I think."

Adriana is currently the brand ambassador for the Spanish clothing brand Desigual.
