Yep…. OMG….. GROSS…….. unfortunately though way too common……
Lately in the lash world we are seeing massive warnings about lash mites……. Yep mites!! They are nasty little suckers that you DO NOT want…. EVER!!
WARNING…… gross content ahead!
Here are some facts:
– Eyelash mites may come out of the hair follicle at night and crawl around your skin.
– The average mite is only 0.15 to 0.2 mm long.
– These mites can be contagious. Eyelash mites may spread from contact with others who have them.
– They can put up to 25 eggs in every hair follicle.
THEY LOVE MASCARA 😱 – Your eyelashes are a popular place for bacteria to grow, and mascara only worsens the situation. … The mites are covered with scales to help themselves attach to the eyelash. The mites have a sharp, point like mouth, which eats away the dead skin cells and hair follicles on the eyelash.
