Actress Margot Robbie is reportedly a huge proponent of using nipple cream as a lip balm but will The Doctors agree this is a good use?
Margot says she has used it her entire life and feels like some lip balms contain ingredients that actually dry you out so that you have to keep using them. Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra gives this the thumbs up!
Dr. Batra explains these lanolin-based nipple creams are hydrating and have fewer preservatives than typical lip balm. Lanolin is derived from sheep glands and it’s a lipid concentrate that is actually very similar to the outer layer of human skin.
Dr. Batra’s only hesitation is for people who are allergic to wool since this cream is made from sheep. Otherwise, this tube can be used for mothers and non-mothers alike!
