It’s all about lifestyle! Lea Michele revealed the secrets behind her glowing skin, which, as it turns out, has to do with a whole lot more than just the right products.

“First and foremost, I don’t wear makeup when I don’t have to,” the Scream Queens actress, 29, told WWD. Which means that when she’s not on set, “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.”

And that skin care rule your mom always told you to follow? It’s one of Michele’s go-tos. “I don’t go to bed without washing my face,” the newly minted Burt’s Bees ambassador said, adding, “I’m consistent with my products.”

But she isn’t just good to her face — she respects her entire body. “I drink a ton of water and I always try to get a good night’s sleep,” she explained.

Michele continued, “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.”
