How to Survive Winter in Korea

Yes, these are in celsius but also that means ITS TWENTY EIGHT DEGREES TODAY!

In Seoul, its been getting down to about 15 degrees fahrenheit at night :(

Here are a few popular ways to keep warm in Korea!

Face Masks

These do a lot of things that can help you out in winter.

1. They keep you warm! It catches the heat from your breath and heats/steams your face to keep you really warm when outside.
2. They keep you safe from germs! People cough and sneeze a lot in Korea without covering their mouths so keeping yourself away from germs is tough, but these do the job!
3. They protect against air pollution! This year the air has been really bad in Korea so an extra layer will protect you from the bad stuff floating around.

Pick up the one Chanyeol is wearing:

Heat Packs

In Korea, you can buy hot packs or hand warmers everywhere! You just shake them up and they can keep you warm for up to 14 hours! Actually, one of my friends accidentally fell asleep holding one and she got a slight burn, so its best to put them in a cute little pouch like the ones below~
Cute Reusable Ones:
Classic Korean Hand Warmers :)

Warm Drinks

Obviously you could just go for coffee, but in order to fight colds and get your vitamins and energy, Koreans often drink Yuja Tea and Ginger Tea.
They come in a jelly/jam consistency and you have to add two scoops into a mug and fill it up with hot water. It's super healthy for you!
