How to achieve Andre Brito's look?

Hi all,
I've looked all over the forum trying to find a workflow or post-process that would give a look similar to this:
http://www.andrebrito.com/NUS.htm

Besides the usual master lighting technique, how do you get skin so smooth and creamy and so well defined in post? It seems to glow but at the same time is perfectly sharp.
Would oil on the model's skin help?
Any pointers are greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Yup OIL, and then D&B since most are full body shots the D&B is based more on defining the body than "refining skin texture" but its the same process. Also lol "a warm envirorment" we don't want goose bumps ruining the shots...

Thanks for your suggestions. I'll try the oil. How do you control the scene's Dynamic Range? If the skin is too shiny could that be a problem for the highlights?

The thing is to use the right and even amount of oil. You can achieve this by using spray can oil (I have read that the olive oil kind is good) this way you get even spread and can control how much of it you apply on. I have also seen used almond oil and then put on a normal sprayer bottle but I haven't tried it myself to see if the sprayer bottle has to be a special kind. You also have to be careful how the spray can works, I bought one and instead of doing "oil mist" it churned out more like "streamy spay" making bubbles when it hits the skin.
