Gabrielle Union, 50, Rocked Nothing But Underwear On IG—And Her Abs Were Killer

  • Gabrielle Union just gave fans a behind-the-scenes sneak peek into her haircare routine.

  • The 50-year-old actress did a whole tutorial on Instagram—and I’m absolutely loving it. Toward the end of the clip, she cheekily flashes her insanely toned bod as she rocks a white tank top with matching underwear. And whoa, those abs are fierce!
  • Gabrielle, who is perimenopausal, avoids gluten and dairy to stay in shape. She also kills it at her home gym, working out several times a week—on top of Pilates!

Gabrielle Union is a natural queen.

The star gave a behind-the-scenes look at her haircare routine, and I love it! Of course, she ended her video with a look at her totally ripped body.

ICYMI, Gabrielle, 50, has her own beauty line called Flawless by GU. And she definitely uses the products herself! In a sweet reel she posted to IG, she combed out her curls, applied several different products, and even got help from her adorable daughter in the combing process. You love to see a sweet mom and daughter moment!

“Slip without the fall 😉 @flawlessbygu,” Gabrielle captioned the reel, before calling out the products she used, which included 5 Butter Miracle Leave-In Conditioner, 5 Butter Leave-In Conditioner, and the Scalp Soothing Tonic. Based on Gab’s buttery smooth ‘do at the end of the video, I’d say the products are doing their job!

Speaking of the end of the video…a fresh-faced Gabrielle shows off the final results in a white tank top and matching underwear. And damn, does she look strong and beautiful as usual.

“No filter, no makeup- STILL gorgeous!” wrote one follower. Zooey Deschanel threw a heart eyes emoji in the comments, and I would say that summarizes the whole vibe here.

If you’re wondering how Gabrielle stays so fit, WH has answers! Luckily, Gabrielle shares a lot of her routine on IG for all to follow along, including one particularly intense sweat sesh set to “Break My Soul” by Beyoncé. Iconic.

In this full-body workout, Gabrielle does push-ups, banded squats, deadlifts, crunches on a Bosu ball, one-legged squats, and more before finishing with a sweaty run. This is no joke!

When she’s not crushing it at the gym, Gabrielle hits a Pilates class.”The great thing about Pilates is that I can take out my annoyance from waking up early on the machines instead of human beings,” she told WH. “It’s for the greater good. My body responds to it, and I’m also more clear.” Makes sense to me!

When it comes to her diet, Gabrielle shared on IG that she avoids gluten and dairy to help with weight fluctuation as she is perimenopausal. It helps to “regulate my hormones and lessen the memory fog, moodiness, insomnia, hair loss, bloating, and all the other fun 😵‍💫side effects,” she shared on IG.

She was also recommended to cut alcohol and caffeine, but Gabrielle said she opted not to because she is human! Relatable. Other food favorites include fresh fruit like strawberries and almonds:

Love to see Gab living her best life!
