Lea Michele's teabag scent

Lea Michele insists that she really abides by all the beauty rules she shares in her Brunette Ambition book.

The gorgeous Glee star has released Brunette Ambition, which is partly an autobiography and partly a wellbeing and beauty guide.

It might seem like the 27-year-old is extremely strict with herself, but she insists that she really does do all the things she preaches about in the book.

"I do really live a very regimented life; it's just what works for me. That's the truth. But I'm proud to say that there's nothing in my book that I don't actually do every day and sometimes you read these books, and you're like, 'Do you really do that?' But honestly, like everyone who knows me will tell you, I do these things all the time," she assured

"Like when Amber Riley came up to me one time and told me that I smell like a tea bag because I had so many oils."

Despite her hectic schedule, Lea always manages to look fresh-faced at events. The brunette star tries to remember the importance of getting enough hours of sleep every night.

"I always keep in mind that sleep is cumulative. So if you have five days of getting ten hours of sleep, you can go three with only getting four a night. It stocks up," she explained.

"But I always take a bath before I go to bed, chug a bottle of water, and then do a face mask in the morning. I'm not going to stay up late knowing that in a couple days I have Good Morning America in the morning."

Lea added that she hopes to encourage girls with her book who feel pressure to live up to "blonde ambition" and having the "perfect look". Her aim is to crush stereotypes and show variations of beauty.
