Lea Michele Reveals She's Acne Free Thanks To 'Incredible' Products

Lea Michele has never been shy on speaking about her battle with polycystic ovary syndrome and the cystic acne that she's lived with for years as a result.

PCOS is thought to affect one-in-five women between the ages of 18 and 44, and can come with a number of different symptoms, from loss of periods and difficulty getting pregnant to acne and hair loss.

Lea has always been candid about her struggles with acne, even telling her followers on the different methods she's used to try and clear her skin.

And now it seems Lea's efforts have seriously payed off as she shares a gorgeous bare-faced selfie, showing off her clear glowing skin.

When asked by a fan what the number one trick to healthy skin is, Lea explained: "I've suffered from acne my whole life. I had to go on a lot of medication growing up (accutane twice) and many others to help my skin."

She continued: "I eventually learned I had a condition called PCOS which is a common diagnosis for women. I was able to correct my diet and get my skin under control. With the help of an amazing skin expert @shanidaren I also love @isclinical products."

Lea finished with sharing some cult tips that everyone can follow in terms of looking after their skin. "But strongly believe in taking care of yourself on the inside: drinking tons of water, good sleep, washing your face before bed, no smoking etc... and that is always a good place to start."

The Glee star also credited the Tata Harper The Resurfacing Mask and Clarifying Mask for helping clear up her skin.
