We relate so much to Lea Michele's facial waxing routine

Lea Michele isn't afraid to go behind the scenes. The actress just made us laugh (and wince) by documenting her entire facial waxing routine on Snapchat.

For a supposed quick window into someone's world, we all can agree it's most likely that people Snapchat their proudest, most exciting moments. Not Lea Michele. Today, we meet her waxer, Stevie, who has come to her for a house call. "This is gonna hurt. Bad," Michele tells the camera.

Next comes her #mustache. "This is the real beauty, you guys," she tells her fans. "This is what happens when you're half Jewish and half Italian," she laughs.

Michele is also well-known for documenting her SoulCycle addiction and love of working out. At $34 a pop, not everyone can afford to exercise like Michele (or have a waxer come to their home), but it's refreshing to see a celebrity get so real.

Let's hope Michele keeps on showing us her real self — we have a feeling we can learn a lot from her.
