Gabrielle Union celebrated her 40th birthday at a Courvoisier Gold-sponsored party on Monday and shared how she stays in top form as she ages so gracefully. Aside from touting It's A 10 for its great leave-in conditioner and hair products, Union also emphasized her number-one beauty secret: drinking plenty of water.
"I drink a gallon a day. I'm still using my regular Neutrogena, but I haven't moved into the anti-aging products. I basically use my pink grapefruit scrubs and cleansers, but I drink a crapload of water."
As far as staying fashionable, she looks to younger generations and magazines to see what she could incorporate into her style. Union, not one to shy away from grabbing inspiration from others, even admitted to stealing Taraji P. Henson's look for her bangin' new hairstyle.
"I ran out of weaves, so I said, 'Let me try a bang.' Literally, I just ran out of weaves," Union explained. "I just bit her whole style. I can't promise what it will look like next week. I may have found a new muse and I will have stolen their look."
Instead of harboring on her age or rushing to have children with boyfriend Dwyane Wade, Union says she's just enjoying spending time with loved ones and keeping drama and chaos from entering her life.
"Emotionally and mentally, I'm in a good place. I'm entirely happy. I have a great life. I'm actually at a place to appreciate it, and recognize it."
