Lea Michele rarely wears make-up.

The 29-year-old actress likes to give her skin a break from cosmetics when she is not working and keeps things simple when she is off-duty.

She told WWD: "First and foremost, I don't wear makeup when I don't have to. When I'm out and about with friends and family, 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. I drink a ton of water and I always try to get a good night's sleep. That's the first place I see my skin get affected - when I'm traveling on planes full of dry air. I treat my skin very delicately; I don't go to bed without washing my face; I'm consistent with my products."

Lea also lives a "very healthy lifestyle" and loves working out.

She explained: "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."
