YOUR HAMMAM RITUAL IN 5 STEPS:

2. Follow with the Hot Scrub ($29), which contains purifying sea salt, warming ginger and refreshing eucalyptus, immediately reducing fatigue and boosting your mood. Apply on top of the Black Soap for an even smoother result.
3. Continue with the Body Mud ($17) with mineral-rich rhassoul clay, a mud that intensively purifies and polishes the skin by helping to remove dead skin cells.
4. Use the Foaming Shower Gel ($15), containing a purifying, refreshing fragrance that pleasantly and softly cleanses the skin. The gel also soothes and helps the skin to repair itself.
5. After you shower, apply the soothing NEW Body Cream ($33) to the body for a nourished and toned skin.

TROIAN BELLASARIO AND RITUALS COSMETICS LAUNCH NEW CAMPIGN
Yesterday, Troian Bellisario joined Rituals to kick off a new campaign to help you #slowdown and live more soulfully. The Pretty Little Liars star joined the global luxury home and body brand to open their new store in NYC, met with fans and took part in free Yoga classes in the middle of Grand Central Terminal.
On Thursday, May 4th, Rituals teamed up with 31-year-old Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario to kick off a campaign to encourage busy New Yorkers to live more soulfully and turn everyday routines into more meaningful rituals. To coincide with the opening of their store in Grand Central Terminal, busy New Yorkers were invited to take part in free yoga classes in Vanderbilt Hall, as well as meet Troian at the brand’s U.S. flagship location in the Flatiron district of NYC. The global home and body cosmetics brand is on a mission to help people pay a little more attention to everything they do, and slow down, especially in New York City.
“I love Rituals not just because of their products but also because of the philosophy behind them. They hope to inspire people to slow down and to live life more mindfully,” said Troian. “It’s something I try to do in my own life, particularly when my schedule is feeling overwhelming or hectic. I understand the importance, mentally, emotionally and physically of taking a few minutes just for yourself; whether it’s a bath, a meditation, a walk through a park or a yoga class. While using Rituals I am reminded to slow down, relax, and experience happiness in little pleasures.”
A part of the European-based brand’s expansion into the U.S., Rituals’ Grand Central store is the latest addition to the 10 shops that are already thriving in popular areas such as SoHo and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s the fifth Rituals store to open in NYC in the past year.
“Our mission is to help people to slow down and find happiness in the smallest of things. Our lives are so hectic these days and it’s too often that we don’t stop and enjoy the moment,” said Raymond Cloosterman, CEO of Rituals Cosmetics. “Our luxury products, which are inspired by ancient Eastern traditions and with fragrances created by the world’s finest perfumers, will help New Yorkers to achieve that and turn everyday routines into more meaningful rituals.”
This event is just the beginning of Rituals’ U.S. campaign to encourage everyone to slow down and be more mindful. The brand will continue to provide New Yorkers with creative respites from their hectic days, encouraging them to slow down, live soulfully, breathe easy, and take a break.
