Taking time for you to relax and rejuvenate is important when living a fast-paced lifestyle to avoid burnout. One of the best ways to do this is to treat yourself and make time to indulge in a thorough grooming routine. Rituals for Men is one of our favourite luxury brands here at Mankind and we’ve gathered our top picks to curate the ultimate formula for relaxation.
Not only is it good for your mental health, it will make you look and feel good on the outside too. When you’re well rested, your body has time to repair and revitalise, and stress will be reduced. In turn, this helps your muscles to loosen up and relax.
Fragrance has a powerful influence on mood. The Rituals Hammam Secret Scented Candle has a burn time of 50 hours and fills any room with strong scents of Eucalyptus and rosemary. Inspired by one of the oldest cleansing traditions in the world, the Hammam Ritual is designed to purify both the body and soul. You can light this candle in whichever room you wish and simply feel any stresses melting away.
A long, hot bath will do wonders to aching muscles and tense minds. The Rituals Samurai Bath Foam cleanses and softens the skin and leaves you feeling refreshed and invigorated. The Samurai Ritual is inspired by ancient Japanese warriors and their grooming routines specially created ready to go to war. Find out more about the Samurai Ritual here. Pour a small amount under running water and soak for as long as you need.
Having healthy skin is often underrated, but it can make a huge difference on how you feel. The Rituals Himalaya Body Scrub is a purifying salt scrub which exfoliates dead skin cells and impurities to improve your skin. Formulated with almond oil and Indian rose, it moisturises and stimulates energy flow throughout your body. Based on the Ritual of Ayurveda, it’s designed to restore inner harmony through cleansing and nurturing the body.
After a relaxing bath, you can still continue creating a spa-like experience at home. The Rituals of Dao Body and Massage Oil moisturises and calms the skin, whilst relaxing and nourishing the body during application. The Ritual of Dao was created around an ancient Chinese philosophy to achieve perfect harmony within your energy. It’s designed to help you find peace and tranquillity in your life.
Complete your Rituals journey with the Rituals Touch of Happiness Body Cream. Formulated with sweet orange, cedar and vitamin E, it nourishes the skin with vital nutrients and essences. Slather across the body before going to sleep and the fragrance will help you to drift off peacefully. This body cream is part of the Laughing Buddha Ritual and was made to celebrate the positivity of the Buddha. It brings an extra touch of happiness to each and every day.
