Let’s face it, being young (24!) has its advantages.  However, to sport a body like Margot Robbie’s, it still requires discipline.  The actress recently shared some of her diet fitness secrets with Emirates Woman.  “I’m not good at doing moderation. I get miserable if I don’t eat,” shares Robbie.  “I can’t just have a salad every day and a half a glass of wine every second day. I can’t do it.”

So what does she eat?  Its actually easier to begin with what she tries her best not to eat; saturated fats, fast foods, sugary drinks, and chocolate are all “banned” from the star’s diet.  “I don’t have a very good diet. I love beer, fries, burgers, but if I have to get in a bikini then I’ll eat carrot sticks for three days. I’m one extreme or the other.”  A typical breakfast includes porridge with blackberries or a “green machine” smoothie (with kale and apple).  Lunch is either skinny lemon chicken with brown rice or a mackerel salad with tomatoes and cucumbers, while dinner features a tuna steak with sweet potato or vegetable “hot pot” with rice noodles.  But if she could have her “wish list,” Robbie would subsist on chocolate, waffles and fries!

The Australian native enjoys intense cardio exercises like running, surfing, and ice hockey.  Her “ice hockey-inspired” workout includes a warm-up of jogging on skipping for ten minutes followed by 8-12 lateral lunges on each side, then rear0foot elevated squats (8-12 repetitions per side), finishing with 8-12 goblet squats (holding a weight close to the chest and doing a complete squat).

Recently, we wrote about the virtues of neroli, an essential oil produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree.   Sister to the sweeter-smelling orange blossom, neroli oil possesses aromatherapy and hydrating benefits which are often used in skincare products, cosmetics, and fragrances.  We flipped for Kerstin Florian’s Rehydrating Neroli Water.  A celebrity favorite — fans include Amy Adams, Margot Robbie, Nicole Richie and Lauren Conrad — its fragrant mist soothes, hydrates, and refreshes the skin.  With its uplifting aroma and natural ingredients, it serves as an ideal face toner or moisturizing body spray.  Embracing the mind/body concept, after a few spritzes, our stress levels were reduced and our spirits uplifted!

Jolie LipsThe desire for full lips is not anything new. From classic bombshells like Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren to today’s stars, Margot Robbie, Angelina Jolie and Rihanna, luscious, kissable lips have never gone out of style. Social media is always buzzing with debates over models and celebrities with fuller lips. How full is too full and when does it start to look fake?  Are lip injections the solution?  “The more that celebrities admit to having lip injections and the more attention this particular procedure gets in the media, the more accessible it becomes. The danger is that the procedure is complicated. Not just anyone can do a lip augmentation,” explains board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Zannis.  We asked the good doctor to share his tips on achieving luscious, natural-looking lips!

Use matte liquid lipstick.  Liquid lipstick is popular because it’s easy! It goes on like a lip-gloss but dries matte on your lips like a lipstick and is nearly impossible to smear or take off without makeup remover. Liquid lipstick ideal for creating a bombshell look for night out or special occasion where you want lipstick to stay put for a long time.  Suggested brands:  ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips, NYX Matte LipstickKat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor

Go for lip fillers.  Dr. John Zannis, who frequently works with fillers, explains that lip fillers are a great option if you want to alter the shape and volume of your lips semi-permanently. “They mostly contain hyaluronic acid, which can be injected safely in multiple sessions. The amount is easy to control by a skilled cosmetic surgeon or licensed professional, which allows you to achieve your goal gradually. The effects last around six months, at which point you may do another round of injections.” He reminds us that achieving a natural look is the goal and that over-filled cartoon mouths look distorted.

Try some cool contouring techniques.  Contouring is another awesome makeup trick to achieve a fuller look. It involves using lighter and darker shades of makeup to play up your features and give you a more defined, chiseled look. The great part is you probably have all you need in your makeup bag already.  Dr. Zannis explains that the key is to strive for facial symmetry. “If you use lip liners, glosses and other cosmetics to create a fuller look consider your other features and natural lip shape.”  There are plenty lip-contouring tutorials on YouTube for free.

Use a lip plumper.  Lip plumpers are great in that they are easy to use, are non-invasive, work fast and are affordable. They’re typically infused with lip tingling ingredients like cinnamon, pepper and peppermint which leads to an instant yet slight swelling.  Suggested brands:  Patricia Wexler M.D. No Injection Lip Plumper, Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme, and DuWop Original Lip Venom
