Tanning in Korea - Where & how?


This is a post for the ladies. Well, perhaps for some men too. Times are changing and I know my brother for one LOVES to get his tan on! He's totally straight before you ask but these days it's becoming more and more common for men to indulge in a little beauty upkeep too. Nothing wrong with that, in fact I prefer my man not to glow in the dark.

So let's just say this is a post for the pasty people or those who fear being one, like me! :)

Being pasty in Korea can happen all too quickly. Everything is against you. A lack of outdoor space, a lack of sunshine and when it does shine it suddenly feels hotter than the dessert out there! On top of that Koreans don't mind white, in fact it sometimes seems all the beauty products are geared towards it.

Listen up ladies!

Ok fellow vagina holders of the world, here's the official word. Everything you have heard, everything you have read, all the stuff your friends told you, its all crap! When moving to Korea I probably packed 5 lbs of tampons strewn about my suitcase, more shampoo, conditioner and deodorant than is humanly possible to use in one year and enough birth control to ensure I never get pregnant, ever. Well, I am here to tell you, straight from an expat's loud mouth, UNNECESSARY! Complete and utter waste of luggage space (and I had to pay extra for my bags to get on the plane, ALOT extra) because you can get everything you need here in Seoul, its not hard to find and not even that much more expensive.
