Lea Michele Shares Her Beauty & Skin Secrets


Scream Queens actress Lea Michele has shared some of her beauty secrets, revealing how she keeps her complexion blemish-free and glowing. Lea believes the key to good skin is going makeup-free as often as possible, so she says she never wears makeup unless she has to for work or an event. For a daily look, she usually only applies some lip product and mascara. She believes giving skin some breathing time is essential:

“First and foremost, I don’t wear makeup when I don’t have to. I’m not pounding makeup on my face — I’ll put on mascara and lip balm and go about my day. I like to give my skin a chance to breathe when it needs to.”

Lea says she sticks to her beauty routine and so never goes to bed without taking her makeup off. She also believes the simple things such as hydration and sleep make a big difference to her complexion:

“I don’t go to bed without washing my face. I’m consistent with my products. I drink a ton of water and I always try to get a good night’s sleep.”

The actress adds that she tries to live a healthy life and believes exercise is so important:

“I pride myself in that I do live a very healthy lifestyle. I try to eat as well as I can — I work out all the time, I hike, I enjoy all the amazing things California has to offer: food, produce, scenery, the beach. It helps me feel better and do my job better.”
