How do divers not get cold?

How do deep sea divers stay warm?
A wetsuit keeps a diver warm by trapping water inside the suit. A snug suit will more effectively trap and hold water against a diver’s skin than a loose suit.

Do hand warmers work underwater?
They’re entirely liquid filled, so you’re not going to burst one in your suit or anything like that. Besides, the only thing in them is sodium acetate and water… not remotely toxic or dangerous. The ones you get at Wal-Mart are air (oxygen) activated and simply won’t work underwater.
