From the article:

According to a new study published in the Journal of Medical Microbiology, tiny mites that live on most of our faces (you're welcome, fellow squeamish people of the world) spend their days napping in the comfy, cozy glands that produce sweat and sebum. These mites carry a certain kind of bacteria (Demodex folliculorum) in their digestive tracts, which spills out of their bodies like piƱata candy when the mites die because, and this is super interesting, the mites don't have any anuses. The bacteria released through this grotesque process, suggests this study, is responsible for rosacea.



ERMAHGERD THATS DISGUSTING! LMAO!!
