We all have a clean face and we wash our face every now and then. But what we have no idea about is that our face has a lot of parasites. These parasites live on your skin and live off your skin and skin oil. These parasites are called face mites or skin mites. They can also be called Demodex mites. These mites that live on our skin are not visible to the naked eye and do not cause any trouble at all. A healthy balance of mites on your skin helps keep your skin clear and healthy, but when there is an imbalance in the number of mites it can lead to skin problems. There is no way to completely rid your skin of the mites but an imbalance can lead to skin conditions or infections.

Home remedies are the best way to improve your skin and find the balance it needs but more importantly, you need to consult a doctor. See a dermatologist and consult him before you start any home remedies to treat skin mites. You cannot treat anything without getting diagnosed.

Here are some home remedies to treat skin mites-

1. Neem

Neem has a lot of medicinal properties. It is a great antiseptic and has anti-bacterial properties. It can help clear your skin of any infections and bacteria. Neem is used for many skin problems. A smooth paste of neem or some neem oil can help you maintain a healthy balance of skin mites.

2. Tea tree oil

Tea tress oil can help kill the skin mites and reduce the number of mites you have on your skin. Mix a few drops of tea tree oil with a carrier oil and massage your face with it. Let it stay on your face for 20 to 30 minutes after that and wash it off.

3. Turmeric

Turmeric is an antiseptic and has many medicinal properties and has been used for healing since forever. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties as well as anti-bacterial properties. It can soothe your skin and kill skin mites. Make a paste from turmeric powder and some neem or clove essential oil mixed with a carrier oil or you can use freshly squeezed lemon juice instead. Apply this on your face and let it dry before you wash it off. Do this 3 to 4 times a week.
