As we wave a sad farewell to summer and bring in the autumn season layering becomes about more than the clothes we’re wearing. In this blog we’ll take a look at layering skincare products and highlighting some of Pink&Green’s autumn skincare essentials.
2021 has thus far seen a range of dramatic weather events. We’ve seen the apocalyptic rain in Germany and parts of Belgium and the Netherlands that claimed 200 lives. Click into this Economist article and you’ll see a photograph that will take your breath away – but not in a good way. It rams home the unimaginable destruction they’ve suffered there. We’ve seen too the fearful fires blazing across the Mediterranean region, resulting from record-breaking summer heatwaves. All of which has prompted me to flag up Greenpeace Day 2001 which is on the 15th September. And hot on its heels from the 20th – 26th September is national recycling week.

Of course I take care of myself.’ But then if I were to dig a little deeper and ask you ‘okay – how? In what ways do you take care of yourself?’ it could get trickier. What even is self-care anyway?
The sun beamed down on us through lockdown and it’s been a decent summer overall. But now autumn approaches and with it our thoughts turn to the harvest and nature’s bounty. And that’s something that we at Pink&Green make the most of in our products.
From lavender oil to rosehips to frankincense and avocado oil and more – harvest and nature’s bounty is key to Pink&Green.
