Body creams and lotions are now a passe. Body yogurts are taking over the beauty market like anything these days. What is body yogurt? It may look like a regular moisturiser but it is a lot more smooth. It is specially designed to be used on damp skin just after the shower.

If you don't already have a body yogurt in your bathroom closet or still trying to figure out if it is worth investing then here are some benefits of using it. 

What Is Body Yogurt?

Body yogurt is a moisturiser that quickly gets absorbed into the skin. It has emulsifiers which form a shield on the skin and keep it moisturised for a long time. As compared to regular creams and lotions, body yogurt has a long-lasting effect.

Body yogurt is applied on damp skin for the best results. The consistency is gel-like and lighter as compared to body creams or lotions. 

Long-Lasting Moisturisation

One big reason why body yogurts are getting all the love this season is that they offer a long-lasting moisturisation. While the body lotions and butter offer a moisturisation that lasts about 12-24 hours, body yogurts last for about 48 hours. Those blessed with dry skin can't really do without some moisturiser, especially during winters. If you are looking for a product that keeps your skin moisturised for a long time then you must invest in a body yogurt.
