Did you know there are more lifeforms on your skin then there are people in the world? There are about a trillion microbes on your skin or in your skin, so more than 100 times the total number of humans on the planet. We may not realize it but the human body is a walking ecosystem. Minuscule, eight-legged Demodex mites nestle head down inside the follicles of the eyelashes, feasting unnoticed on skin cells. Microscopic bacteria lives on the tongue, teeth, skin and in the intestine. People are blissfully oblivious to the microscopic life we carry around with us.
