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…”
– Ubiquity and Diversity of Human-Associated Demodex Mites by North Carolina State University & Fordham University, USA.
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.

Delicious foods and vitamins to help make your hair and skin healthier!
We all know that much or our external beauty depends on our internal beauty, and not what you think. I’m talking about your health! If you have a healthy diet and lifestyle, your chances of having beautiful hair and skin in not only increased, it’s almost guaranteed.
Here are a few foods rich in much needed vitamins to help you have healthier hair and skin.
Obviously, Iron is an especially important mineral, especially for women, but did you know it’s important for your for hair and too?
Not enough iron can actually contribute to hair loss, and will worsen the problem if you’re already suffering from Demodex mite related hair loss.
There are ways to get your iron levels up, and one way is eating animal products such as red meat, chicken and fish with a high bio-availability, (meaning the iron is readily available to the body). Vegetarians can raise their iron levels by eating lentils, spinach and other leafy green vegetables such as broccoli, kale and salad greens, or if you simply don’t have the time for these the leafy greens or a lot of meat there’s always the option of Iron supplements – approx. 15- 30AUD at a chemist or health food store.
Vitamin C aids the absorption of iron so foods high in vitamin C are good to eat in conjunction with iron-rich foods. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant so is used readily by the body. The best sources are blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes. Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen that strengthens the capillaries in our skin.
Vitamin A is needed by the body to make sebum. Sebum is an oily substance created by our hairs sebaceous glands and provides a natural conditioner for a healthy scalp. Without sebum we may experience an itchy scalp and dry hair (which is what happens when Demodex mites feed off of it and cause hair loss and skin problems). Include animal products and orange/yellow coloured vegetables which turn into vitamin A, such as carrots, pumpkins and sweet potatoes.
The sun (especially in hot places like Australia) can damage our hair just like it can damage our skin so ensure you eat foods rich in vitamin E to provide protection for your hair. Nuts are nutritional powerhouses, providing zinc as well as vitamin E so try to include them as part of a healthy diet.
And as always, to ensure that you get the best results for your hair and skin use UNGEX Mites Solution to prevent a mite infestation and help these vitamins help you!
