Have you ever wondered why Gabrielle Union defies the lovely concept of aging?
In the March issue of Women’s Health, the Being Mary Jane star unveils her biggest rules to staying a hot young spring chicken. First, the beauty doesn’t poke her face.
“I get asked all the time how I look so young. I don’t like needles,” she tells the mag. “I’m not going to rule out Botox, but the idea of putting a needle in my face … I’m not there yet.”
Second, Union claim she has “pretty oily skin,” so she drinks “a lot of water, I don’t smoke, and I don’t have a hard life. Of course, as I’ve aged, everything on my body hurts! My hips, back, shoulders—lots of aches and pains. I dye my hair and people say, ‘You look young,’ but my gray hairs are saying, ‘She’s old as f-ck!'”
Gab’s third anti-aging tip is “the ability to say ‘no, no, and hell, no’. We run ourselves ragged saying yes to every freaking thing, whether it’s to our family, spouses, or careers. I sleep eight hours a day and don’t let myself stress out. A lot of people call it selfish, but I don’t have any wrinkles.”
Fourth, Union stays in the gym. “I have a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, and I know that can lead to an early death,” she says. “I want to be a vital and energetic part of my family for a long time, not to be big mama in a rocking chair in the TV room, or huffing and puffing just going up stairs. I work out not because I get off on it, but because I want to live!”
She adds, “At my age, if I don’t work out for two weeks, it’s like I’ve never done anything, ever. But my arms come back quickly. I try to maintain my moneymakers.”
Dwyane Wade’s wifey graces the cover of the publication baring her toned legs and arms, her favorite part of her body. “I love my arms because it’s where I get fast results.”
Union’s issue hits newsstands on Tuesday.
