If you are thinking your face is totally clean, you need to think again. According to experts, you have a collection of hundreds of thousands of mites living on your face and other parts of your body. Yes, it’s ok to freak out a bit, but it’s not a problem you need to fix.
In fact, you don’t need to worry at all. D. brevis and D. foliculorum are the pair of species of mites that absolutely love to hang out on your skin inside the tiny pores. The average lifespan of a mite is 14 days. These tiny creatures eat, sleep and even mate right on your face below your eyes.
No matter what you use to scrub your face, these tiny creatures won’t go away. The good news is that these things are not harmful. What we need to do is accept the fact that we are not alone no matter where we are.
