On skincare

I always start by cleansing in the shower – I don’t do too many steps because I genuinely don’t have that much time, but I’m anal-retentive about having really clean skin. Especially with my job, where they just layer make-up on and on and on. One brand I’m obsessed with right now is this brand Skin111, which my make-up artist Patti Dubroff got me hooked on. They have these sheet masks, they’re made out of a jelly sort of stuff and the serum they’re soaked in is so good. So when we’re getting ready for an event she’ll put one of those on while she’s doing my hair. At the moment at night I’m using a Dr. Lancer cleanser and a La Prairie moisturiser. No matter how drunk I am I absolutely will not go to bed with my make-up on, I will not.

On make-up

For everyday I use either Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser or Ellis Faas Skin Veil Foundation mixed in with some moisturiser, or if I go to events I use Suqqu Foundation. That shit doesn’t come off. It looks like skin, but it doesn’t budge. I haven’t found another foundation that stays on like that without looking heavy. Patti also taught me that on your bottom lashes you should use eyelash tint rather than mascara so I’ll do that if I’m out for dinner with friends or whatever. And I’ll always brush my brows, sometimes I use pencil too. Then it’s just mascara and a bit of cream blush. For a little lip colour I’ll just use the tinted lip balms by Burt’s Bees.

During the promotional tour for ‘Suicide Squad’, Margot has been repeatedly asked about her work out and diet programs. It seems people are very interested in finding out how she got in the shape needed to portray Harley QuinnFood4BetterHealth has today posted an article about just this, and I decided to post it here since it seems to be of big interest for very many! You can read it below.

Getting in shape to play Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn required a lot of dedication on Margot Robbie’s part because she had to both look good in the bikini bottoms she pranced around in and in the stunts she had to perform.

The 26-year-old actress knew the role would require her to have a strong physique and that she would have to work out hard to get the right body. Margot Robbie’s workout routine consisted of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) as well as weight training.

She spent three weeks training hard for about three weeks a day while the movie was first being shot. Trainer Andie Hecker helped Robbie get into form through Pilates, ballet, and bulking cardio.

First up on the workout schedule was getting rid of traditional cardio machines and going for high-intensity interval training cardio circuits for an hour each time.

With a deep background in ballet, Hecker incorporated rebounders and balance balls into the Robbie’s workouts. The goal of the fast-paced workout is to constantly change things up, which taxes the body.

Some of the exercise Robbie did with Hecker in her cardio routine included: Trampoline and rebounder jumps, Leg rotations, Mountain climbers, Bosu ball hops, Double leg lifts, Outer thigh lifts. She would rest for a minute after each set and then repeat the set three to four times. The challenge to the body comes from going from one exercise to the next without stopping until the set is complete.

Along with these circuits, Robbie also does something called Ballet Bodies. The technique was developed by her trainer, who used to be a ballerina. Whenever Robbie is in Los Angeles, she makes sure to see Hecker for workouts. Robbie also loves to take dance classes when she can, and says they don’t feel like a workout at all.

Margot Robbie’s Diet
Robbie flat out says she hates to diet and she doesn’t really follow any particular diet regimen. She relies on exercise to keep her lean and in shape instead of limiting her food choices and depriving herself of the things she loves to eat.

However, like many stars, she does actively cut back on certain foods while filming a movie, but she has said that she gets miserable if she doesn’t eat. Eating a salad every day doesn’t work for her; neither does having just a half glass of red wine every other day.

One thing she won’t give up is the 10 cups of tea a day she has. Her favorite breakfast is avocado on toast with bacon. Clearly she eats what she wants and looks to burning off calories through hard physical workouts done regularly.

Suicide Squad has been in theaters since early August and is doing really well at the box office.
