You know how your computer will seemingly out of nowhere, suddenly slow down to a snail’s pace, take forever to get to a new page, be stuck in the ‘unknown zone’ or worse ~ just freeze up altogether – without warning or explanation?
And there you sit staring at the white glove pointer finger or watching the spinning ball waiting for the darn thing to load – knowing that it there is a 99.9% chance that it will not happen, and you will have give up – but yet somehow you don’t lose hope that a miracle will happen on its own – and voila all will once again be right in the land of computers – ughhhh wrong! Sooooo wrong.
Without a doubt you know that you will have to reboot it to fix it! But you don’t right away. No, no, no, you try to wait it out – or try to trick it out. Yet in the time it took to sit, wait, and pray that your computer would heal thy self – you could have turned it off, powered down, and started over, rebooted and got back on track a lot sooner.
Your skin is a lot like your computer. Everything running smooth and beautifully – rosy cheeks, luminous healthy glow, supple and firm, you feel confident in your own skin, like what you see in the mirror ~ and then seemingly out of nowhere, suddenly your skin looks dry, flaky, irritated, old and saggy, foundation streaks, eyeshadow melts, mascara runs, or lipstick smears – without apparent warning! And you cannot figure out why – after all you didn’t change a thing. Same skincare routine, same makeup application, same dietary program – what on earth happened and caused this unexpected and definitely uninvited change?
Your skin – like your computer, is exposed every second of the day – to all kinds of uninvited, totally pesky ‘tagalongs.’ The computer terms are cookies, untrusted sites, and temporary files – for your skin is environmental elements – such as overly heated or cooled air, sun exposure, lack of hydration, and of course, the ever present stress factor, just to name a few of the constant bombardments to which your skin is exposed. Whatever the cause, just like your computer – sometimes your skin needs to Reboot!
