What can’t our bodies do? They convert food into energy. They move us around. They give us lots of enjoyment (as well as a little frustration, probably). We live with our bodies every day, and do our best to make them look presentable.
But there’s only so much one can do to disguise the fact that the body is, in fact, pretty amazingly gross. Don’t worry. There’s nothing wrong with you. These things are normal and natural, even if they weird you out.
Get to know yourself better:
#1. Eyelash mites
They feel pretty when you put on mascara, too! Eyelash mites, or Demodex folliculorum, are tiny guys camping out at the base of your eyelashes, with as many as 25 to a follicle. That sounds like a lot, but they’re tiny and harmless, only causing allergic reactions in people with sensitivities. Wave hello when you look in the mirror.
