Get Glowing Summer Skin with The Body Shop

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 12, 2012) - Come rain or shine, the summer months turn the spotlight on our skin. Increased temperatures can lead to excess sweat and oil, which deposit on the skin to attract grease and dirt. This year, whip your summer skincare routine into super-smooth shape with the best products for your face and body, from The Body Shop.


Summer is the time to scrub. Exfoliate both your face and body to keep your pores free of sweat deposits and clogging oil.


The Vitamin C Microdermabrasion is a face wash to be used once or twice a week. It contains super-fine micro particles, including crushed garnet stones, for a gentle yet effective exfoliation. Rub into your skin using a soft, circular motion, before rinsing well with plenty of water. Dead skin cells will be banished, leaving you with an improved texture and a glowing complexion.


Short sleeves, dresses and shorts are a staple part of the summer wardrobe, so you'll need to pay close attention to the skin your body as well as your face. The Body Shop's extensive range of body scrubs will quickly buff away dead skins cells and oil deposits to leave your skin feeling soft and delicately scented. For smooth summer skin from head to toe, the Peppermint Soothing Footscrubber uses volcanic rock granules for an intense exfoliating experience.


Don't make the mistake of skipping your moisturising routine this summer. A good moisturiser is essential for protecting your skin against drying sunshine and chilly breezes - helping you to maintain a fresh summer glow.


The new All-in-One BB Cream combines skincare and make-up for a great lightweight moisturising option for the summer. Along with 24-hour hydration, the BB cream includes pigment-filled capsules that burst when massaged into the skin to create a perfect match to your skintone. Best of all, it contains marula oil sourced from the Eudafano Women's Cooperative in Namibia, helping you to feel confident in the Fair Trade credentials of your summer beauty routine.


Get into the sporting spirit this year and pack your skin with the goodness of strawberries and cream. Rub liberal amounts of Strawberry Body Butter into your skin after exfoliating to keep it feeling soft to the touch all day long.


Hot and humid weather conditions can lead visible pores and unwanted shine. Tea tree oil is one of Mother Nature's greatest beauty tools and will instantly rid your skin of greasy congestion. Mineral powders soak up oil and sweat to free your pores, helping them shrink naturally over four weeks. Simply apply the Tea Tree Pore Minimiser after cleansing and moisturising to create a silky-smooth and make-up ready skin.
