The Demodex is a species of tiny mites, that live on our eyelashes. They crawl around our faces every now and then, eating up all of the oily secretions on our faces.

Although they themselves don't excrete onto the face, but when they feed they do feeding on the oil on our faces until they quite literally blow themselves up all over your face.

Yes ! Almost every animal on the planet is host to the Demodex, so most likely, I and you as human beings are not exempt from the host to them as well .

I know you might be inquisitive to learn about how it affects our body and you might as well be asking questions like “Are they harmful to my health?”

Well luckily for us as human the are not harmful to us.

According to research, these creepy-crawlies are eight-legged, mostly transparent and microscopic in size, measuring about 0.01 inches (0.3 millimeters) apiece.

They live near the roots of facial hair follicles on both men and women, hidden away inside your pores.

This tells you now that you alone aren't practically the sole owner of your face, some tenants are also living here without your permission!

Sebum is a substance produced by glands tucked inside your pores, near the bottom of your hair follicles.

Demodex mites seek out this greasy meal ticket by burrowing face-first into those pores, where they sleep by day.

At night, when you're asleep, they crawl onto the surface of your skin to mate. That's right there's a nightly mite party on your face, and you're not invited.
