Dive in! A man covered with mud sits in a medicinal mud pond at the "Lagoon of Miracles" in Chilca, Peru January 20, 2008. It’s said the nutrient rich mud, applied to the skin as a natural peel, restores skin cells and eliminates toxins. The "Lagoon of Miracles," with its distinct greenish color along with the mud ponds that surround it, is said to cure everything from acne to rheumatism.
