Hi, everyone! I’m Dr. Tabasum Mir, of Mir Skin Dermatology here in New York City. Lot of people have asked me about the differences between body butters and body lotions. Body butters are sort of a new thing that developed over the last few years that are a lot different than lotions. Lotions are really common – you can find them everywhere, everybody’s used a lotion. What a lotion is, is a lightweight combination of oil and water. It’s very quickly absorbed into the skin, it’s greasy, you can use it on the go, and usually people who have almost every kind of skin type that needs a little bit of moisture can benefit from a lotion. And, a body butter, however, is a lot thicker, more intense hydration. It usually contains a high amount of oil such as cocoa butter, Shea butter, Vitamin E, and because of this, it can kind of give you the intense, deep hydration for the most severely dry or chapped skin. Because of that as well, it can be dense at room temperature, it’s a lot thicker, it doesn’t absorb as quickly, and it’s very helpful in the times where the climate changes, and it’s becoming colder and you’re losing that humidity outside, and you’re getting a lot of heat and hot water causing extra dryness of your skin. So, the bottom line is, if you’re looking for really intense hydration, you want to go with the body butters – they are going to give you the best bang for your buck if you have severely dry or chapped skin. Thank you for tuning in! I hope you enjoyed this segment. I’m Dr. Tabasum Mir, from Mir Skin. Thank you!
