The Wild Guide... Enjoy the This Works’ pick of the best, safe spots for wild swimming around the UK (and the body care kit to take with you)

The Brockwell Lido

London’s finest outdoor pool is even popular during the winter months. Pack your Morning Expert skincare ritual for a further mood-boosting cleanse and hydration post swim (and a wetsuit and thermal swim cap if it’s December!) 

Rottingdean Beach, Brighton

Join the daily all-female community of locals who enjoy a morning dip at Rottingdean Beach. Treat cold limbs to a warm up massage post swim with skin deep dry leg oil.

Spitchwick Common - Sharrah Pool, Dartmoor

Great for children because of the quasi beach bank – perfect for long summer days, just don’t forget your in transit skin defence SPF30

Sprinkling Tarn & Styhead Tarn, The Lake District

A dip in a glistening lake halfway up a mountain? The ultimate antidote to a stressful week at work and disrupted sleep patterns. Don’t forget to pack your sleep plus pillow spray – especially if you are camping at the base of the mountain! 

The Fairy Pools, Isle of Skye

After a day of hiking in the highlands, jump into the beautiful (and breathtakingly cold) fairy pools. Before bed use sleep plus massage relief to work out tension from long walks and any knots in your quads and calves. 

summer skin saviours kit

Replenish your skin post -swim by applying perfect legs body butter all over and perfect heels rescue balm to feet and dry heels. Make sure to top up regularly with in transit skin defence SPF 30 to stay protected from UVA and UVB rays.
