It’s no secret that having itchy skin can be uncomfortable.

No matter if you have a bug bite, athlete’s foot, or jock itch, no one wants to deal with inflamed, dry skin.

Cooling cream can help relieve the itch when and where you need it the most. But not all cooling creams are created equal.

Read on to learn more about men’s cooling cream and the best all-purpose cooling cream you should keep on hand.

What is Cooling Cream?

Cooling cream is as straightforward as it sounds – a smooth and moisturizing lotion formulated to cool down hot skin.

What sets cooling cream apart from other lotions is the mix of ingredients that soothe irritated skin. This cream delivers an instantly cool sensation that can immediately reduce itching and other skin irritation for hours to come.

Ingredients in Men’s Cooling Cream

So, what makes anti-itch cooling cream so cool? You may be surprised to learn how common ingredients can provide instant itch relief by having a cooling effect on your skin.

Here are some common active ingredients in cooling creams and how they work.

Aloe Vera

There’s a reason aloe vera is a main ingredient in creams for sunburned skin. This ingredient is mainly water, meaning it provides instant hydration and a cooling effect for your skin. Plus, it can even reduce inflammation.

Pro tip: Keep your aloe vera gel or cooling cream in the fridge for an added icy boost when you apply it.

Peppermint Oil

Who doesn’t love refreshing peppermint gum? It’s no secret that peppermint offers an instant cooling effect no matter if it’s a flavor or active ingredient. We love to use peppermint oil in our men’s cooling cream because it cools your skin and reduces itching without clogging pores. And it acts as a natural analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent.


Menthol is another popular cooling agent used in calming creams and lotions. The Derm Review explains that menthol is a naturally occurring ingredient that can be obtained from peppermint, corn mint, or other mint oils. It’s known for its cooling properties, delicious scent, and ability to relieve mild pain and itching.


While not an ingredient, you can often find calamine lotion to help sooth itchy skin and rashes. Calamine lotion is an over-the-counter (OTC) medicine usually used to treat poison ivy, bug bites, and heat rash.

Consider using calamine lotion for these specific instances rather than an all-purpose cooling cream.


Cucumber is a main ingredient in many cooling beauty products like eye masks and sheet masks. Since cucumbers are mainly water (like aloe vera) they deliver a cooling sensation. Interestingly, the inside of a cucumber can be 20 degrees F cooler than the outside temp.

Uses for Men’s Cooling Cream

Keeping men’s cooling cream on hand is a great idea for treating dry skin, rashes, and general discomfort. Here are a handful of uses of cooling cream.

Cooling Cream for Itchy Skin

We don’t have to tell you that itchy skin can be really uncomfortable. There are a variety of reasons your skin may be itchy. From dry skin and insect bites to allergic reactions, itching is an uncomfortable sensation and can leave your skin looking inflamed.

Anti-itch cream works to soothe the affected area. Many times, anti-itch cream can be used like a lotion all over. But for more targeted itch relief, like for a bug bite, you might want to try a stronger, more niche cooling cream for itchy skin.

Cooling Cream for Sunburns

Sunburns are essentially damage to the top layer of your skin, which is why they can make you feel itchy. Most cooling creams for sunburns use aloe vera as the main ingredient. These cooling cream can deliver instant relief but also work to deliver much-needed moisture to your parched skin.

Cooling Cream for Rashes

Jock itch, athletes foot, and allergic reactions can all cause rashes. While the root cause of these rashes differs (jock itch and athlete’s foot are fungal infections), they can all cause itching. Cooling cream for rashes offer immediate relief and often include other ingredients that can help to treat the source of the rash.
