Secret to skin and hair loss nobody wants you to know about.
Secret to skin & hair loss nobody wants you to know about.
Have you ever heard of Demodex mites? Some might know them as hair mites, face mites, skin mites, body mites, eyelash mites, eyebrow mites, ear mites, human mites or hair follicle mites. Whatever their name, these pesky little parasites have a lot to answer for.
Few may know that Demodex mites exist, let alone could be contributing to their skin and hair problems. They are microscopic parasites that live under the hair follicles on your skin. They feed off of the nutrients that your hair needs to be healthy, so hair becomes under nourished and falls out.
They live off of oils, cosmetic products and hair treatments that are actually doing your hair harm because the mites are actually feeding off that extra nutrients. In some cases this will cause their population to boom, in turn worsening the symptoms (some people have been found to carry up to 25 mites in one single follicle!).
“100% of people over 18 years of age appear to host at least one Demodex species…”

So it is not a question of ‘Do I have mites?’ but rather ‘Do I have a high population density?’. If you are experiencing and of the below symptoms, the answer is likely YES!
• Hair Loss • Thinning Hair • Itchy scalp • Acne • Rosacea • Ageing Skin • Enlarged Pores • Rough Skin • General Discomfort • + more
Dealing with and of the above symptoms is often troubling, where do you start?! Treating Demodex mites is where. Eliminating mites is a pre-condition to hair and skin care. Once you eliminate these problem causers, your skin and scalp is a blank canvas to work on and can take in and benefit from the nutrients that the mites were consuming before.
