The summer travel season is over, shit's getting chilly, and it's just one of those days when we really use a spa day — so here's a quick reminder that Iceland's Blue Lagoon exists, and it looks amazing.
People have flocked to the lagoon since the '80s, back when the mineral-rich water's supposed healing powers were popularized.
Technically, it's not a natural hot spring — the lagoon's water come from a nearby geothermal power plant and is heated to stay around 99–102 °F.
And listen up skincare lovers: You even have the option to do a silica mud mask while you're in the lagoon, which is quite possibly the best case situation to do a mask in.
And yes, it's actually very blue! The milky blue color comes from all the minerals in the water.
(Thereby making your instas all the more insta-worthy, obvs).
So, tl;dr, it's pretty and relaxing and good for your skin. Let's all go here soon, okay?
