Our modern lifestyle can be challenging for our eyelids and eyelashes that protect the delicate structure of the eye. Bombarded with bacteria, allergens and parasites, our eyelids and eyelashes are further challenged by the use of makeup, false lashes and air conditioned and dusty environments. A 2015 study in Australia found that on average the participants touched their faces 23 times per hour. Almost half of the face touches involved the mouth, nose, or eyes, which are the easiest pathways for viruses and bacteria to enter our bodies.
Dex Mites (Demodex) are a small mite that lives in the follicles of human eyelashes (as well as other areas of the face and body). It has been reported that depending on age and health, the probability of you having Dex mites is between 25% in younger healthy adults and up to 100% in adults over 90 years of age. While in most cases Dex Mite infestations do not manifest any outward symptoms, they have been linked to dermatological conditions such Rosacea and Acne. They are also attributed to be a cause of the condition Blepharitis.
