Zelens’ Wintertime Sleep Aid
One of the main reasons we would probably never find ourselves with a permanent L.A. address is the lack of changing seasons. (Truth: The traffic is also a major deterrent.) Our bodies feel somehow off balance without that temperate shift, even when it does happen in the dramatic fashion typical of New York. But while our body clock has always functioned better with seasonal changes, our skin, most definitely has not, particularly, say, right about now. The physical effects of the arrival of cold weather have always been a bit seismic (read: hypersensitized with a semi-permanent veil of redness), so it was with great anticipation that we greeted the arrival of Zelens’ latest product designed especially with repair in mind. A superrich, concentrated formula packed with peptides, hyaluronic acid, and time-honored soothers like vitamin E, olive oil, and arnica, the new Z Recovery Intensive Repair Balm has an immediate “ah” effect on your complexion. While it may be a touch too dense for daylong wear, there is nothing more ideal than patting on a slender layer before hitting the sack. Take that, winter.
