Body cream is sometimes used interchangeably with body lotion even though they have a different formulation and texture. The confusion probably stems from the fact that they both soothe, hydrate, and nourish your skin, making it supple and smooth to the touch.
If you’re looking for body cream and body moisturiser lotion products with hydrating properties, antioxidants, and vitamins to help your skin look beautiful and glowing, visit Ultraceuticals and choose from our collection of premium skincare products.

If you still don’t know your exact skin type, we also have a skin quiz on our website where we can help you determine if you have normal, sensitive, or oily skin. With just a few clicks, you can also identify your main skin concerns and the appropriate skincare products and special routines to help you achieve your goals.
What is a body cream used for?
Body cream has a thicker and richer consistency than lotion because it contains heavier ingredients like oils, which create a thick layer of moisture. This makes them suitable for those with especially dry skin that needs extra support when it comes to restoring the skin’s moisture balance. Hydrating lotion for body, meanwhile, typically contains a higher percentage of water, so it has a thinner consistency. Thus, they’re generally recommended for people with oilier skin types, as they may enjoy using a lightweight product.
That’s why we’ve formulated products that are not only nourishing and hydrating for your skin but also feel great and refreshing to use, so you can always look forward to every skincare routine.
During the winter, you may also notice that body creams are more effective in preventing dry skin by locking in more moisture. Your knees, feet, elbows, and hands are susceptible to dryness due to frequent washing and exposure to harsh elements like wind, fluctuating temperatures, etc. Look after your skin by purchasing from our Ultra Body range at Ultraceuticals.
How to choose the right body cream?
You should look for a product that contains ingredients that form a protective layer that seals in moisture, helping to protect your skin against pollutants and prevent the evaporation of moisture from your skin. At Ultraceuticals, our body creams are specially formulated and tested to provide these benefits.
If your skincare goal also includes having a smooth and supple complexion, you can opt for a nourishing body lotion that uses vital hydrators like Sodium Hyaluronate and Glycerin. After regular use, your skin will feel soft and smooth.
If you have extra sensitive skin, you can consider using products that indicate they are suitable for your skin type (you may also want to stay away from products with synthetic fragrance and parabens). If you don’t know where to find these skincare products, shop at Ultraceuticals, where we always indicate the skin types that can benefit from our products, the nourishing ingredients they contain, and the directions for how to use them.
How to use a body cream?
In many cases, a skincare product is only as good as the ‘application technique’. That being said, it’s important that you use them correctly to reap their benefits.
It’s ideal to use body cream or body lotion right after a shower as your skin has been stripped of its natural moisture and oil. Remember, avoid long hot showers and baths because they may dry out the skin and disrupt its natural balance of moisture, oils, and fats. Additionally, slightly damp skin absorbs body cream more readily.
Place a coin-sized dollop of body cream or lotion on your palm. Add more if rougher areas such as elbows and knees are particularly dry.
Slather on the body moisturiser and make sure you apply it all over your body. Pay special attention to your dry areas, such as your elbows, knees, and heels. You may also want to apply it to your face and neck.
While the best time to slather on body cream is right after showering, this is not the only time you should use this product. For instance, if the weather is cold or the air is particularly dry, try to prep your skin by applying cream. This regimen is particularly important before going to bed since moisture is pulled out of your skin as you sleep, especially during a chilly night.
It is also ideal to use body cream after shaving in which you remove not just the unwanted hair, but also the top layer of skin cells (as if you had exfoliated), which predisposes you to dryness.
Now that you know the right body cream for your skin type and how to use this product correctly, why not visit Ultraceuticals and choose from our quality skincare products?
