Demodex folliculorum

Demodex folliculorum

Have you seen this arachnid?

You have, but probably don’t know it.

It is the follicle mite, and more than 50% of the population have them.

They feed on the facial oils, burying themselves in the hair follicles; eyelashes, eyebrows, etc.

Horrifying thought, isn’t it?
