For the most part, many people have never heard of Demodex mites. What are they exactly?
Demodex mites are tiny microscopic organisms which live in the hair follicles. There are two species living on humans that have been identified: Demodex folliculorum and Demodex brevis, which are both frequently referred to as hair mites, skin mites, body mites, eyelash mites and a whole lot more.
Studies show that Demodex mites are associated with numerous types of skin complications, such as hair loss, pimples, acne, rosacea, freckles, spots, rough skin, atopic dermatitis, itching, rash, discolouration on the face and other skin conditions.
Many people have Demodex mites, and they usually are A-symptomatic in healthy people. However, when a person becomes sick, and their immune system goes down, the number of mites increase and unfortunately, a person then suffers negative effects with skin problems and hair loss.
So what can you do in order to get rid of these mites?

your immune system, which in turn will help prevent and control Demodex mites:
- Eat healthy food: Try to eat more of vegetables and fruits and reduce the consumption of fried and oily junk foods. By cooking meals at home you can be in charge of what you’re eating and be able monitor exactly what goes into your food. The more healthy food you eat, the better you’re likely to feel after a meal.
- Exercise: Try to exercise at least 30mins and 3 times per week early in the morning to get the heart pumping and your blood circulating. This also helps keep you energised and ready to go throughout the day, as well as allowing you to maintain your weight. Go out and enjoy the sunshine, you’re more likely to feel happier and healthier.
- Get plenty of sleep: Try to get at least 8 hours of good quality sleep at a regular time each night. Getting plenty of sleep also means that you’re likely to get less sick often, you may stay at a healthy weight, lower your risk of high blood pressure and diabetes, and be able to think more clearly and do better in school and at work.
- Stress less: Take the time to relax, and talk to friends and family and plan ahead for events which may be causing the stress. Also, try listening to some music, or taking a moderately-paced walk outdoors. Make sure though that the people you choose to talk to aren’t the cause of your stress!
- Drink water: At least 4-6 glasses of water per day. Water is necessary for preventing dehydration and replacing fluids lost from sweating. You can also add extra water in your diet with certain food such as watermelon, lettuce, spinach and soups, which can work in conjunction with drinking water to retain a healthy amount of water.
- Clean your surroundings: Clutter in your room can be stressful and can impact how you’re sleeping, so move out stuff that isn’t necessary for rest. This may also reduce health risks by getting rid of dust, bacteria and other nasties. It will also help you to have better rest without extra clutter to distract you.
- Wash your sheets regularly: By keeping clean sheets, you are helping to get rid of moisture and skin cells that you shed while you sleep. You are also helping getting rid of any Demodex mites which may have transferred onto pillow cases. Therefore you’ll keep your sleep area cleaner and you’ll be less likely to sleep in something you don’t want to.
- Disconnect from technology: By disconnecting from technology, you may help in allowing yourself to become more positive, and provides the opportunity to reset and refocus appreciation and gratitude. It may also help you to be more creative, improve your mood, boost concentration and make room for new intellectual connections.

Did you know that you quite likely have tiny parasites, called Demodex Hair Mites, living ON YOUR FACE?
These microscopic parasites (too small to feel or be seen with the naked eye!) spend their days hiding in our hair follicles, sucking on sebum (the oily secretions produced by the sebaceous glands) and eating the cells lining the hair follicles. At night, under the cover of darkness, adult mites emerge, crawl around, and … mate on your face!
Now before you cringe in horror, or worse yet, rush off to ex-foliate and scrub your face raw, you should know that Demodex are found on nearly every, or perhaps even every, adult. Studies of cadavers tend to find them on everyone, such that for adults the question “mite” be not whether you have mites, but how many or which kind you have. Demodexmites are common across mammals. In fact, 65 species have been described living on mammals including cats, dogs, horses, swine and cattle.
On humans, there have been two species described (so far): Demodex folliculorum and Demodex brevis. Although it is suspected that most adults harbour these mites, if their host (that’s you and me!) has a lowered immune system due to reasons like illness and stress. Some of these symptoms can can be explained below:
Symptoms- what, why?
- Hair loss and thinning
- Mites feed off of sebum.
- Follicles become undernourished, causing hair to fall out.
- If left untreated, mite population can increase drastically.
- Aging skin, enlarged pores, acne
- Multiple mites share one follicle, causing skin to stretch.
- Mites eat collagen and elastin from skin. Lack of elastin causes skin to lose elasticity, resulting in wrinkles and other signs of aging.
- Rosacea and facial discolouration
- Mites have been shown to carry bacteria that, according to recent
research could be a contributing factor to many skin conditions.
- Increased mite density in skin may trigger inflammatory responses,
block hair follicles or help transmit other bacteria to other parts of the skin, leading to signs and symptoms of rosacea.
- Itching, tough skin and general discomfort.
- Demodex walks with its claws scuffing the skin, causing itching and toughened skin.
