Lea Michele: Dog pee wrecked my spray tan

Regular tans may not be healthy, but there is at least one advantage to a sun-given bronzing: A dog answering nature's call won't mess it up.

Lea Michele arrives at "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."

"Glee" star Lea Michele appeared on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" Monday night, and shared a beauty tip: Don't take your newly spray-tanned self near any pooches.

Seems that the actress received a spray tan (celebrities don't go to a franchise, someone came to her house and set up a tent for the procedure) and later went to work. On her break, she picked up a manager's dog, and when the owner tried to take the dog back, the pup apparently became frightened and pretended the actress was a fire hydrant.

"Because I didn't wipe off the spray tan yet, it left pee streaks all over my legs," she told Leno. "Like zebra-striped pee marks."

The star apparently resorted to "baths with lemons" to remove the streaks.

"That's so much better than going out in the sun for 20 minutes," Leno cracked.
