Margot Robbie Has a Pretty Genius Use for Nipple Cream

She may not be a mom, but actress Margot Robbie already has some pretty stellar mom hacks under her belt.

Margot Robbie may not have any kids yet, but the 26-year-old actress already has some pretty mom-friendly beauty hacks in her repertoire that seem just perfect for the time-crunched parent.

For one thing, the Suicide Squad star recently admitted to Elle UK that she uses a nipple cream (you know, for breast-feeding mothers) called Bepanthen to hydrate her dry lips. Sounds like an easy (if strange) enough trick, since most nursing mamas have this stuff stashed somewhere around the house. But, um, why not just use some good old-fashioned Chapstik?

"I have a conspiracy theory that lip balms actually have additives in them to dry your lips out so you keep buying them," she explained. "But because Bepanthen is just a cream for dry skin, it works. It's what I've used my whole life."

She also copped to co-opting a toothbrush or eyebrow spoolie to blend her foundation into her hairline. "I have blonde hair but tanned skin," she said. "If I don't blend it, it looks gross—you can see the foundation in my hair."

Not gonna lie, as a crazy-busy mom-of-two, I've actually experienced the phenomena of glancing in the car mirror mid-day only to find a nice big glob of BB Cream hanging out in my hairline, so I am definitely going to try this one.

What mom-friendly hacks do you use to get out the door each day? Let us know in the comments!
