She’s so much more than just a television star, and Lea Michele offered some insight into her health and beauty regimen in a new Organic Spa feature.

Career-wise, the “Glee” gal hasn’t forgotten her Manhattan stage roots even though her current gig is on the West Coast- “I absolutely loved working on Broadway and living in New York. I definitely miss it sometimes. But right now I’m loving working on Glee and living in LA. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’ve sort of become a California girl! I would love to go back to Broadway at some point though and do either a musical or play.”

Ms. Michele also cites her mom as a main source of motivation. “My mother inspires me personally every day. She is so beautiful inside and out. Professionally, there are so many people I look up to. I believe personal and professional role models are very important and always keep you inspired. I love Barbra [Streisand]! I also love Jennifer Lawrence. I think she’s an amazing actress and a very strong and outspoken women. Those are the kind of women who I admire so much.”

And when asked for advice on how to be comfortable in one’s own skin, Lea shared, “It’s not something that happens overnight. Although I’m grateful that I was raised to be happy in my own skin, it’s not always easy. Sometimes what you hear and think you need to be can start to be that little annoying voice in your head. But I think taking great care of yourself and being kind to your heart and body is a good place to start. And always surrounding yourself with people who uplift you. Remember it starts inside; to feel truly beautiful you have to love yourself inside and out.”
