Eyelash hairs, SEM

Eyelash hairs and skin. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of eyelash hairs growing from the surface of human skin. The shafts of hair (red) are anchored in their individual hair follicles in the surface of the skin (pink). Hair is made up of a fibrous protein called keratin. The outermost skin layer, the stratum corneum, also consists of keratinized dead cells that detach from the body. The squamous (flattened) cells that make up the stratum corneum arise from the lower, living layers of skin. The tails of eyelash mites (Demodex folliculorum) are seen protruding from the base of several eyelashes. Magnification: x50 at 6x7cm size

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from Science Photo Library showcases the intricate details of eyelash hairs and skin. In this magnified image, we can observe the red shafts of hair firmly anchored in their individual hair follicles on the pink surface of human skin. These hairs are composed of keratin, a fibrous protein that forms the building blocks of our hair. The outermost layer of skin, known as the stratum corneum, is also visible in this image. It consists of keratinized dead cells that naturally detach from our bodies over time. The squamous cells that make up this layer originate from the lower living layers of our skin. Interestingly, protruding from several eyelashes are tiny tails belonging to eyelash mites called Demodex folliculorum. These microscopic parasites coexist with us on our lashes without causing harm under normal circumstances. This photograph not only provides a glimpse into the anatomy and histology of healthy eyelashes but also highlights some fascinating subjects like parasitic organisms and epidermal structures. Its vibrant colors and high-resolution capture make it an excellent addition for scientific research or educational purposes.
