Is body cream better than lotion?
Body lotion is lighter as compared to the thick texture of body cream. Since body lotions have a low density than creams, it absorbs more quickly into the skin and is suitable for normal to oily skin. It is ideal for use during the day and hot summer months because it leaves a less greasy residue than cream. Body cream keeps the skin healthy and hydrated while treating and preventing rough and cracked skin. It's perfect for extremely dry to normal skin, during the colder winter months because it creates an ultra-hydrating barrier.

How to choose body creams as per skin type?
Each skin type is dependent on the amount of water, the oil content and sensitivity.
Normal Skin Type: The ideal moisturiser for normal skin should be non-greasy. A body lotion or body cream which is light in texture and does not leave residue is the most suitable for this skin type. The high water content keeps the skin hydrated and nourished and helps in evening out the skin tone and improving texture.
Oily Skin:Oily skin requires utmost care during extreme and humid weather. Using a moisturiser which is not very thick in texture and does not clog the pores is the best body lotion for this skin type. Body lotion enriched with oil, high content of water and other hydrating ingredients is best suitable for oily skin.
Dry Skin:Dry skin tends to get flaky and tends to leave white patches. This skin type needs deep moisturising round the year. A thick and velvet textured body cream will be very helpful for overall nourishment of the skin. These silk body creams are infused with a high content of nourishing oils which hydrate dry skin.
