Amongst her many accolades and impressive accomplishments, Gabrielle Union is revered in the beauty world for her flawless skin. Seriously, folks, her velvety smooth complexion looks more like a porcelain doll than an actual human. And while healthy habits and good genes most definitely play a role on the starlet’s stunning complexion, Gabrielle shared her best-kept skin care secrets.

“The biggest habit that changed my life when I was in my early 30s was when I started drinking a gallon of water a day,” Union told Fashionista.

Seems like a no-brainer, right? Well, considering an estimated 75 percent of Americans suffer chronic dehydration, it seems like we all could use a reminder to swap the soda for a tall glass of water — especially if our skin depends on it.

But wait, there’s more. As if that weren’t great advice already, Gabrielle also dished on a few other seemingly simple habits that have stopped the clock on her skin.

“Tequila and wine — saying no. Drawing clear boundaries will shave years off your face,” she explained, adding on that self-care is also a ~huge~ must.

Of course, drinking copious amounts of H2O, steering clear of over boozing and avoiding unnecessary stress isn’t the Being Mary Jane star’s only approaches to fighting off fine lines and wrinkles.

As for injections, the actress confessed she’s not a big fan, considering her aversion to needles (side note: we relate!).

And there you have it, beauties! When it comes to skin care, the actress keeps it simple!
