How to get ‘Glowy’ skin

Skin defense

With rising temperatures and summer definitely on the horizon, protect your skin with The Body Shop’s new daily essential — the Skin Defense Multi-Protection Light Essence, an ultra-lightweight, moisturizing formula that helps protect your skin with SPF 50 PA+++ protection. This super-fluid essence uses cleverly optimized broad-spectrum UVA/UVB filters to help protect daily against damaging UV rays, as well as help protect from indoor and outdoor pollution.

The fast-absorbing formula looks invisible, feels breathable and is comfortable on skin. It’s non-greasy, won’t leave a white sheen, and doesn’t transfer onto your top. Skin has an added glow, looks more even and ready for makeup (if that’s your thing).
