Lash mites are parasites that live in the follicles on your face.

They eat the dead skin cells and oils on your eyelid.

We have skin mites and dust mites, lash mites are no different.

Talking about eyelash mites, makes my skin crawl!

Pretty much everyone has a small number of lash mites on their eyelashes and they are usually harmless, most people don’t even know they have them.

They help keep the lash follicles clean because they are eating the dirt and oils. Only when there are many lash mites does it become a problem.

No noticeable symptoms at this stage. Lash mites are usually harmless, most people don’t even know they have them.

Moderate symptoms. You may experience itchiness around the eye, redness and swelling of the eyelid.

Advanced symptoms. Symptoms will progress towards a scaly, rough patches of skin.

You might also feel a burning sensation of the eye, blurry vision and light sensitivity.

Keep in mind that most people don’t even know that lash mites exist. Keeping a clean and healthy lash line is the way to go to prevent eyelash mites.
