Took a break from sourcing Icelandic Flaky Sea Salt and went to the Blue Lagoon yesterday, about 40 minutes outside Reykjavik. It’s one of the most popular attractions in Iceland. It’s a geothermal spa rich in silica and sulphur (a huge hot tub that’s good for your skin). The weird thing is that the lagoon is powered by the geothermal power plant directly behind it. Not exactly a pretty sight. I half expected to bump into Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. You can apply special white mud treatments to your face for exfoliation at several stations. I felt quite exfoliated by the time I left. (By the way, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t let my boss know about the beer.)
