The Beauty Rules – and Products – That Lea Michele Swears By
Lea Michele's Beauty Rules
From her always-perfect beach waves to her glowing skin, Lea Michele seems to have mastered the art of looking amazing. And no, it's not just because she has her hairstylist best friend on call at all times. Now, the recently-engaged singer and actress just partnered with Olly Vitamins -- and she's sharing the details behind her beauty routine and her must-have products, here.
It Starts on the Inside
"Beauty is not just on the outside. Getting to feel and look your absolute best starts from the inside out. I started my whole process with working out and taking care of my body in the best way that I can. I am an avid hiker, I love going to SoulCycle classes and I go to hot yoga. I go back and forth in between pescatarian and vegetarian diet, and I love doing cleanses when I can. I see results in my skin and in my hair, the texture of my hair, and my overall energy level."
Nourish Your Skin
Shani Darden is my facialist, and I also go to Nurse Jamie. I had really bad acne growing up sine Shani introduced me to these products and by giving me such fantastic facials, my skin has truly transformed. When I want to pamper myself I will go to Nurse Jamie for her cryofacial and Shani for a full facial to really get my skin to be it’s absolute best quality."
Make Your Hairstylist Your BFF
"I’ve been loving the Beach Waver [curling iron] before the world even knew what it was. Sarah [Potempa] is one of my dear friends and my hair gurus. I love her so much, she’s going to be doing my hair for my wedding."
Mantain a Vitamin Regimen
"I’m so excited to be officially partnered with Olly Vitamins to get to represent the brand and talk about how much of a huge fan I am. I do the Undeniable Beauty, which is fantastic for your hair and for your nails, because it has keratin, antioxidants, vitamin C, biotin, all those good things.
Another one of my absolute favorites is the Goodbye Stress, I take it every night when I’m winding down and getting ready to go to bed. The Women’s Multi I take every single day as well, and my fiancé wants the Men’s Multi."
Relaxation Is Key
"I am a really big fan of Goop, and I love their detox bath salts at the end of the day or even before an event if I want to relax or detox. I love using their charcoal one as well -- all of them are incredible and the complete detox line is fantastic. I can detox my system or I use them to get my skin to look its absolute best. Anything and everything Goop, I am their biggest fan."
Get Your Friends Involved
"We share so many tips with each other, it’s non-stop," she says of her relationship with pal Ashley Tisdale. "I love her line, especially her eyeshadow palette from Illuminate. We get massages together, she loves beauty. She will tell me all off her favorite little beauty things."
Michele also says she and Emma Roberts are "really good girlfriends. We are constantly trying new things together. Emma and I go to [sweat lodge] Shape House together, which we absolutely love."
Go Low-Key for Date Night
"I keep it very simple. I usually part my hair in the center and do a low bun, because it always kind of looks good in the center. I do like a statement earring because it makes me look a lot more dressed up than I am. I always take my Honest Magic Balm and I use that as a cheek and eye gloss -- it creates such a nice little glossy glow and I’ll use mascara and nice little bright lip and that’s really all I will really need."
Take Care of Your Hair
"I just got my hair done at the Nine Zero One Salon, so I had to get some new products since I did a little bit of a color treatment. I have been using Briogeo, I really love their shampoo and their hair masks are fantastic. They’re paraben- and sulfate-free. When it comes to products I try to find as many natural products as possible. That’s been a new favorite of mine."
