Thick skin was an early combat spell. It became available at level 1 EvilMagic, and consumed 2 earth runes, and 2 body runes when cast. When cast, it would increase your Defence by 5 levels. When the Magic and Prayer skills were combined, it was taken from the evil spellbook and added to the newly formed Prayer book. The new Prayer version of the spell would have a similar effect, but at the cost of prayer points instead of runes and with a requirement of level 1 Prayer.
