Scientist discovered that face mites resides and multiply tremendously in your face.
Originating from the family of spiders, scientists believed that everyone is prone to host hundreds or even thousands of these eight-legged mites sensing a probability of estimated two per every eyelash. “There are two species of mite which choose to live on your face: Demodex folliculorum and D. brevis. They both have short legs and are worm-like in shape – but their closes relatives are spiders. D. folliculorum are found in hair follicles and pores, while D. brevis resides deeper down in our skin’s sebaceous glands”, said Megan Thoemmes of North Carolina State University in Raleigh.

Although no specific findings can confirm how or what they eat for survival, experts say that they are seriously inviting to their own kinds. Thoemmes added: “Some people think they eat the bacteria that are associated with the skin. Some think they eat the dead skin cells. Some think they’re eating the oil from the sebaceous gland.”
