A Heavy-Duty Cream for A Man’s Parched, Dry Skin


It’s summer. You’re outdoors. A ton. Between work and the occasional 18-hole sunburn, your skin is really, really dry. Stay away from the girly moisturizer and put down the cheap store-brand lotion, because Buckler’s Chapped Skin Remedy ($18 at Amazon) is what you really need.

Ideal for hands, feet, fingers, and all areas prone to dryness, we’re particularly impressed with its ability to revitalize flaky, patchy elbows, parched cuticles, and dry knuckles. It’s non-greasy and suitable for all climates — read: when Aspen or Park City suck the life out of your skin, it still works — and absorbs itself into your skin pretty much instantly. In addition, it’s fragrance-free so, to quote one reviewer, “you don’t have to worry about smelling like a punch bowl.” With soothing ingredients like Calendula extract, aloe juice, and shea butter, this thick cream only requires a small dab to do its job. Plus, the vegan product contains no parabens or harsh colorants, so you can feel good about perhaps relying on it a tad too much (neurotic hand washers, we’re looking at you).

Now you know.
