Use our quick guide to discover which swimsuit colours best suit your skin tone



  1. Listen to your body and choose a pace that works for how you feel at that moment. Your usual swim fitness programme might not tick the box today; if you’re really tired you may find that a long, steady swim is more beneficial instead.


  2. Feeling anxious and stressed? To help release pent-up energy, you might want to work hard and fast. Consider swapping your usual swimming session for a short sprint workout in order to help reduce your stress levels.


  3. If you find it difficult to switch off from stressful thoughts, our Speedo Aquabeat underwater MP3 player could help you drown out brain chatter.


  4. Feel like you can’t face the pool today? Try to push through the stress and go anyway. Sometimes just five minutes of losing yourself in the water is all you need to regain your positive spirit.


    Tip: If you know you’ll struggle to leave the house again after you’ve returned from work, pack your swim bag the night before and choose a pool on your route home.


  5. If you feel tired and need an energy boost, set yourself a small, realistic goal of going to the pool for a 15 or 20 minute swim, or create a target of completing 20/30/40 lengths – whatever you class as a small challenge. Chances are, once you’ve got started you’ll feel like doing more. But either way, you’ll feel invigorated and positive for getting your body moving and your blood pumping.
