Dont look now demodex folliculorum is hitching a ride.

demodex folliculorum

Hello, my name is demodex folliculorum and I live in the pores of the skin of your face – that’s why it’s important to wash your face and remove makeup!! The only way you can see me is with a microscope. I measure between 0,3 and 0,4 mm, and like spiders, I have 8 legs.I like living in hair follicles that you have in your nose, cheek and eyelashes. These are places where there’s more fat to feed me.I feed on your secretions and your dead skin. I can put up to 25 eggs in every hair follicle.My digestive system is not able to eliminate my waste, so i accumulate them in my body until I explode and die. My remains cause hypersensitivity reactions.According to some studies, in some people, I can cause infections on eyelids and rosacea. I am a mite that is present in almost every adult on this planet.

So now you know ……

Are you gonna remove your makeup tonight? Maybe invest in a good skincare regime? 

Or are you going to be grossed out but still ignore it 🤮 

This is why Make Up , brushes , your facial / bath products all have a shelf life !!! 

Let’s start looking after the skin we are in !!
