Having met people from various walks of life has truly enriched my life as each person has something to teach. Meeting Rahat Khan taught me a lot about taking life in a positive stride always. To keep smiling no matter what. Her high energy level can put any youngster to shame. A super busy woman, as she is into myriad activities; plans her day perfectly to ensure she does justice to her professional as well as her personal life. One part of her day is dedicated to her beauty salon, ‘Marigold’ while another part to ‘Herbalife’. In between she beautifully squeezes time out for her club meetings and personal commitments. Let’s hear from the lady and learn how to balance work, home, beauty and fitness…
How was ‘Marigold’ born?
I certified as a Cosmetologist as a part of my hobby and extension of ‘Fiteez Gym’ to provide wellness to all. In the year 2004 the advertisement in my mail to attend the world’s largest beauty expo “Cosmoprof” in Bologna landed me on a tour of Bologna, Rome, Venice, Milan and Florence… Italy. My quest for beauty ended there, from the workshops I attended for Spa Therapy and Skin therapy.
A beauty tip for all those women out here – to look young and graceful for eternity…
‘Cleanse – Tone – Moisturise’ to look young and stay beautiful. ‘Shake (as in have a Protein shake daily) to stay in shape!
How did the journey in Herbalife begin?
My menopause stage took a toll on my health and skin which brought my haemoglobin count to 8 and I was put on a Hormonal Replacement Therapy which had lot of side effects. That’s how Herbalife came into my life and transformed me into a healthy energetic ‘me’ through nutrition and healthy lifestyle.
